Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

Using sudo gedit /etc/fstab runs the entire gedit process as the root user, with full system wide privileges. As noted you can do it instead with the gvfs admin:// paths: gedit admin:///etc/fstab Or in Nautilus press Ctrl+L and type the admin:// path and then any text file opened from there opens f...

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

Although you mitigated the use of sudo with the -H switch it points out the issue Pjotr made in his original post: And for editing system config files, it almost feels as if we're being pushed towards abusing "sudo". In Ubuntu 18.04 this runs fine: sudo gedit /etc/fstab Well ... it doesn't run fine ...

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

We don't need no stinkin' gksu. We Linux desktop users have an understandable feeling of superiority over those poor Windows and macOS users. You can't feel superior if you are part of the majority. Removing gksu and making all of those HowTo's out there that specify it's use useless is just a way t...

Re: [SOLVED] CIFS vs Shared Folder in Windows Server 2012 R2

I don't know if you will get notification of this post but I have a question. Is bob@dude-uk the actual user name or is the dude-uk part really a domain?

Re: Network Discovery in only one direction + # of users question

There's two things about your post that has made me hesitant to reply: It's not clear if you want a samba solution or something else like AFP. I have no experience in AFP. HFS+.

Re: CIFS vs Shared Folder in Windows Server 2012 R2

I'm afraid I do not have an answer to your original question but I may have an insight into this one: Nemo can mount the shared folders. Unless you have modified smb.conf yourself the highest negotiated smb dialect that Nemo can attain is smb1 ( NT1 in samba-speak and vers=1.0 in CIFS-speak ). mount...

Re: Need help networking with Win 7

Anyways, would you mind showing me how to do it the other way also... like doing a direct access like that from the Win 7 machine to the Linux laptop shared folder? It's fine if you can't, but that would be a big bonus for me. :) It's easier on Windows: Open Explorer ( file manager ) and type: \\19...

Re: Need help networking with Win 7

Now open a terminal and run:

Code: Select all

nemo smb://192.168.1.64/Videos
Do you gain access to the share?

Just a note: Static ip addresses are your friend in Samba. If your Win7 server always had the 192.168.1.64 ip address you could create a bookmark to smb://192.168.1.64 and that would be the end of it.

Re: Need help networking with Win 7

Start slow. [1] Can you ping from Mint the Win7 machine by it's ip address: ping -c3 <win7-ip-address> [2] If the ping is successful run the samba client command to get a list of your shares and post the output. This is going to get tricky depending on how things are set up: smbclient -L <win7-ip-ad...

Re: How to auto mount ntfs partition on dual boot windows-linux to share files multi user

To achieve what you want, simply create the mount point, set permissions on it then mount the volume in fstab. It's just the opposite. All mounts to a mount point override the permissions of the mount point with their own. All mounts - NTFS, ext4, cifs, ... Anyhoo ... it looks like Mute Ant already...

By "delete" do you mean going into the desktop and "un-sharing" them? I do not know how to answer that since I don't know what is in "a" and "public1"?

Re: Cannot view and copy files using 2 Linux machines

You've got an error suggesting something is messed up with your install of samba itself on lou-ThinkPad-T440. That will happen - especially on Mint - if at some point you uninstalled it and tried to install it again. Before it gets too complicated what I would do on lou-ThinkPad-T440 is: [1] Go into...
