Re: Mapping network drives in Ubuntu from Windows domain (script)

Pretty sure.

I'm not saying it doesn't work as an absolute. It works just as you described it on say ... Manjaro. Just not in Ubuntu or Mint. Never checked Debian itself.

Re: Mapping network drives in Ubuntu from Windows domain (script)

Since this is in the Chat section of the forum for some reason I have my own question. The only reason I prefer autofs for certain conditions vs the systemd method is that it can still do something that systemd cannot. It does the auto-mount part just fine and as expected. What it cannot do is auto-...

Re: having a unique problem with samba some files cannot be played over network using android phones

Here is what I would do: [1] Remove the socket options from your smb.conf. Then restart smbd: sudo service smbd restart If you want to improve performance you might want to look at what Samba itself says on the subject: Performance Tuning [2] Determine from the Mint server machine exactly what proto...

Re: How to give a user access to folder on a external drive ?

chmod -R a+rwX /media/my_user_name/my_device/my_wifes_folder would be the command line to type If your usb device is mounted under /media/my_user_name/my_device it doesn't matter what permissions are on my_wifes_folder.

Re: having a unique problem with samba some files cannot be played over network using android phones

A samba server in Mint19 will respond to a client running pre-SMB1 all the way up to SMB3 automatically. You stated earlier that your TVBox can only access a samba server using SMB1: i have a tv box with kodi 17.6 that only works with smb1 cannot update coz the specs is too low for kodi 18 So it loo...

Re: How to give a user access to folder on a external drive ?

Where is this external drive mounted?

Is it under /media/your-user-name/XXX ?

Side note: Please don't use a recursive chmod in octal. It will make all files executable. This method will not:

Code: Select all

sudo chmod -R a+rwX /path/to/folder

Re: having a unique problem with samba some files cannot be played over network using android phones

Here is the part that makes no sense: client min protocol = SMB2 The client refers to the Mint box as a samba client to another box. Maybe I misunderstood your post. ### Are you accessing the android and tv box from Mint? If you are the client min protocol setting does have an affect. ### Or are you...

Re: having a unique problem with samba some files cannot be played over network using android phones

A samba server will automatically negotiate which smb dialect to use with a client between LANMAN1 ( which pre-dates SMB1 ) all the way up to SMB3 so I do not understand this: i have linux mint mate 19.1 64bit setup as sumba server using smb protocol 2 Are you using "server min protocol" and "server...

Re: cannot connect to window shared dir as a client using Mint 19.0

I suspect you got the "have to be root to mount" error because of a timing issue at boot time. The system reads and tries to execute fstab before the network stack is functional in Mint and fails. THere are a number of ways to solve this and I will give you the one I use: On Demand CIFS Mounting of ...

Re: cannot connect to window shared dir as a client using Mint 19.0

I don't know how to get around this "permissions denied" error from the Windows box. The only other parameter I can think of - which doesn't really apply to Win7 is "sec". Does this work? sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.2.14/H /media/winH -o guest,uid=1000,vers=1.0,sec=ntlm Or maybe even: sudo mount -t...

Re: cannot connect to window shared dir as a client using Mint 19.0

Do the shares on the Win7 machine require a user name and password? If so you want to pass a windows user name and password. If they do not require a user name and password I suggest we go in a different direction - a cifs mount: ** Create a mount point for the "H" share - for example: sudo mkdir /m...

Re: cannot connect to window shared dir as a client using Mint 19.0

In a terminal again mount the public share - we are doing this at a very basic level so we can bypass as much of Mint as possible: gio mount smb://192.168.2.14/Public EDIT : Sorry you wanted to mount the "HDD shared" share so the command would be: gio mount "smb://192.168.2.14/HDD shared" If there a...

Re: cannot connect to window shared dir as a client using Mint 19.0

I have no idea. Looks too much like a Mint error to me.

Is 192.168.2.14 the ip address of the machine you are tying to connect to?

Open a terminal and post the output of the following command:

Code: Select all

smbclient -L 192.168.2.14

Re: cannot connect to window shared dir as a client using Mint 19.0

Why are your running nemo smb://192.168.xxx.xxx as sudo?

This is not a cifs mount. Run it without sudo.

Re: Lost local network share after upgrade 18.3 to 19.1

There is nothing wrong with your smb.conf or your share definition. Avahi seems to be working since the other machine can now see the Mint19 machine.

I have no idea what that is all about. - at least I have never seen that error message before. I don't think it has anything to do with your fstab entries.
