Re: Unable to set up Samba networking - need fresh start

You can try SSH:

Install ssh on Mycenae:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install ssh


Connect to it from Troy:

Code: Select all

nemo ssh://priam@mycenae.local

Re: Unable to set up Samba networking - need fresh start

Your problems are bigger than samba if you can't even install the package. Are these new installs?

If it were me I would reinstall the operating system or move on to Ubuntu or something in the Ubuntu family like Xubuntu.

I don't have an answer for this new twist in your problem I'm afraid.

Take a look at the content of /etc/samba/smb.conf: cat /etc/samba/smb.conf You might want to post the output to the forum. Then look at the the content of the factory restore smb.conf: cat /usr/share/samba/smb.conf They should match. If they don't: [1] Backup your current smb.conf: sudo mv /etc/samb...

Re: Please do some work with linux mint debian edition! You have abandoned it!

Look what solydx and makulu linux (shift) has done with lmde !

So why aren't you using either solydx or makulu? Or did you mean that in a bad way.

Re: Unable to set up Samba networking - need fresh start

You and I appear to be going in two different directions. You seem to want to go to Network > Windows Network to find your Linux hosts. When you do that you are using Windows' networking protocol ( netbios ) to discover the other machine. What I am suggesting is not using the Windows protocol but a ...

Re: Setting sharing between windows 10 and mint 18.3

Then your Win10 machine has not disabled SMB1. Don't worry about the error messages at the end. Everything should be good to go at this point. You can connect to the Mint share from Windows with a \\Lenovo-G50-80.local And you can connect to the Win10 machine with any of these depending on which pat...

Just so I understand the nature of the problem tell me if I got this right: You open up Nemo and on the side panel are your Windows partitions. You click on it and you can access those partitions. If I got that right then your partitions are not being automounted. The entries on the side panel are a...

Re: Unable to set up Samba networking - need fresh start

It will if you install it this way: If you get nothing but errors when you do that I would suggest you start installing things - and do it the Ubuntu way so you get the complete setup. Do this on both Linux machines: sudo apt-get install samba --install-recommends sudo apt-get install gvfs-backends :)

Re: unable to sudo mount -a

Assuming there really is a host with the name Synology you did not get the protocol negotiation failed error so your device speaks smb1. You should be able to connect to it from the file manager.

If not you have a problem different from this topic/.

Re: Dependency failed for /mnt/DATA

Since all you're wanting is to mount that partition on startup, and fstab isn't behaving, a workaround for this issue might as well be to use whatever GUI you have available to set a startup (post-login) process, that being: udisksctl mount --no-user-interaction --options noatime -b /dev/sda3 The o...

Samba between two Linux machines is fairly simple. Mint makes it hard.
