Re: How to create a launcher to open a folder on NAS

Linux needs to be told what to use to open that location.

If you are using Mint Cinnamon it would be nemo:

Code: Select all

nemo smb://whitecloud/public/Shared%20Music%20on%20NAS
Other desktop environments have their own default file managers: caja or thunar

Re: Samba share mounts as Root? [SOLVED]

As the great engineer will say: "The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain." Booting has become way more complicated over time and the networking stack on the Linux machine is often not fully operational when fstab is read so the cifs mounts fail. This is ...

Re: Cannot connect to Samba shares from Win PCs

client min protocol = NT1 forces the Mint samba client to use the SMB1 dialect when connecting to a server that can only use SMB1 - like WinXP What is missing is the reverse. When a client to the Mint machine that can only use SMB1 ( like WinXP ) tries to connect to a Samba server that has disabled...

Re: Cannot connect to Samba shares from Win PCs

Mint 18 and 19 has SMB1 enabled of the server side whereas Mint 20 does not.

WinXP went end of life 7 years ago and I haven't had to deal with it for a decade but why not post the output of the following commands so the folks here can see how you are set up:

Code: Select all

testparm -s

Code: Select all

Re: Unable to access shared folders under W10

A cifs mount isn't as hard as it looks from the HowTo. I just tried to cover as many use cases as I could. If your system was my system I ( altair ) would do something like this: I would create a mount point at say ... /media/Win10Musique: sudo mkdir /media/Win10Musique Then I would do a temporary m...

Re: Unable to access shared folders under W10

You could create a bookmark to that location in Nemo and have the system remember the password forever but bookmarks to network locations don't work very well in Nemo.

They work in Thunar.

Or you could do a cifs mount to the share: Automount Samba Shares with CIFS:

Re: Unable to access shared folders under W10

Open Nemo - your Mint file manager - and in the Location bar enter the following:

Code: Select all

smb://192.168.0.14/Musique
Do you gain access?

This should also work:

Code: Select all

smb://MEDIA-CENTER-SALON.local/Musique

Re: What is "Windows Network" file under Network?

"Windows Network" launches a scan for all SMB servers on the network ( gvfsd-smb-browse ) via their NetBIOS names.

It's the default file sharing mechanism on Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

Re: ntfs-3g drive ownership and fstab options

In addition, you have a fundamental logic flaw in your script. The permissions of a mount point before something is mounted to it has no relation to the permissions after something has been mounted to it. This is true of all mounts: ntfs, ext4, cifs, .... In the case of a Linux fileystem the permiss...

Don't worry about the net usershare info --long error message. That only applies to shares created from your file manager which caja doesn't do by default. I never know how users create their shares so I always ask for the output. Your share was created in smb.conf. That is the only one that counts ...

We want to replace /etc/samba/smb.conf with the one in /usr/share/samba/smb.conf.

Once the cp is done we then make only adds to the new /etc/samba/smb.conf.
