Re: Mint in Win 10

Are you talking about WSL? Mint isn't specified but Ubuntu is available: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10 Since by default WSL doesn't run a desktop environment ( DE ) Ubuntu would be equivalent to the extent that Mint doesn't fork too far away from the Ubuntu standard.

Re: Accessing a hard drive on local network

Is "garage" by any chance the name of a local user on your Mint box? If it is the warning is just that - a warning that the way you set this up "others" ( meaning not "garage" ) will not be able to access the share. You can fix this if you want by making the guest network user appear to be you to sa...

Re: Samba share mounts as Root?

CIFS is a virtual file system and will always mount with owner = root.

You can replace root with yourself if you want:

The parent folder /media/andy is owned by root which is why you got permission denied. .....

Open Explorer in Win10 and in the location bar enter - don't forget the .local part:

Code: Select all

Re: Linux Mint 20 file sharing ??? something's missing

It's because of your mount point for the 5ef713d0-69ba-4706-be3a-6bb20631599e partition. This is a Linux permissions thing.

Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and right under the workgroup = WORKGROUP line add this one:

Code: Select all

force user = offir
Then restart smbd:

Code: Select all

sudo service smbd restart

Re: [Solved] Failed to retrieve share list from server. Connection refused.

The link that CapraFan sent you to describes the difference in samba in Mint20 compared to earlier versions. It has two use cases: Connecting to a server that has disabled SMB1 and connecting to a server that can only use SMB1. Neither of those apply to MacOS. I don't even reference MacOS in that Ho...

They are present in the installation disk but they are not installed by default. In Cinnamon samba is also not installed but nemo-share is installed. In XFCE there is no equivalent to caja-share or nemo-share. There used to be many many moons ago but then one of the required libraries went to binary...

I had to search your other posts to determine what desktop environment you use to answer this question. Please tell people you use Mint MATE when you ask a question.

Re: File Sharing Mint and Windows 10

If you are running Win10 the way Microsoft wants you to run it it will never be able to "discover" ( under Network in Explorer ) the Linux samba server. This is by design since Microsoft disabled SMB1 on the client side of Win10 and discovery ( by NetBIOS name ) is dependent on smb1. The Linux clien...

Re: File Sharing Mint and Windows 10

Win10 and Linux both use mDNS so you can connect that way: From WIn10: \\acermint.local Windows is smart enough to know that you want a SMB server at that location. Linux has to be told: So in the Location bar of your file manager: smb://win10-host-name.local EDIT : You can also do a cifs mount if t...
