Re: Communicate with Windows 7 Network Machines ???

There's two sambas: [1] One you use to create shares for others to access. That is not installed by default in Mint so you have to install it yourself. Open a terminal ( It's on the side panel of your Menu ) and type: sudo apt install samba [2] One is the samba client that is used to access someone ...

Re: Communicate with Windows 7 Network Machines ???

<r>The biggest problem you face at the moment with Mint19 is that it cannot "discover" the WIn7 machines - in the file manager - because of a change made to Samba in order to work ironically enough with Win10.<br/> <br/> First step is to edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and under the <C><s>[c]</s>workgroup ...

Re: How to share drives over network?

I don't know how to explain this any other way. There are three ways for a given machine to be "discoverable" by other machines on the network. [1] Multicast DNS ( Avahi in Linux ). The version of Samba in Mint 19 enables this by default but in earlier Mint's you need to create the /etc/avahi/servic...

Re: Setting Up Plex Media Server on Linux Mint

Not a plex user but does this make sense: https://forums.plex.tv/t/proper-way-to- ... s/158853/3
Instead of making changes to accommodate the plex user make the plex user you. Whatever you have access to so will plex. Anyhoo that's how I read it.

Re: Problem with file sharing from folders that´s not in my home directory

The fastest way out of this dilemma is to edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and right under the workgroup = WORKGROUP line add this one: force user = diablo Save smb.conf Then restart the samba service: sudo service smbd restart The problem here is /media/diablo is created by the system and it sets up specia...

What I've never understood is why someone never used the installer logic to build a post-install fstab GUI.

If you can't access the machine by it's ip address you have bigger problems. Sounds like the two machines are not in the same subnet to me. That's a networking problem not a samba problem.

Re: Mint 19.1 Samba problems I didn't have on earlier versions

SAMBA has always been able to use netbios even though it is old and obsolete. It still can. What it cannot do in Mint 19 is "discover" netbios names on the network. Neither can Win10 unless you re-enable smbv1 on the client side. Client side smbv1 and netbios discovery are connected. So you will ne...
