Re: Just another noob trying to access a shared Windows 10 folder thru my VM Linux Mint

It is not at all clear to me if this Win10 machine you speak of is the VM host to a Linux Mint VM guest or if it is is a separate box in your network. Anyhoo: ** You don't need to install anything to access another machines smb shares. ** If this is between a VM guest and a VM host you don't need sa...

Re: Can't access my home network shared drive

The problem with working with routers and NAS devices is that although they normal use samba themselves they use antique versions of it that are incompatible by default with the client machine. You end up making guesses and trying one thing after another until you find the magic key. It's all very f...

Re: Firewalld vs GUFW

firewalld has two things going against it:

** it has a "d" at the end of it's name and that rhymes with systemd.

** It comes from Red Hat.

Re: can access samba share via command line but not via nemo [SOLVED]

I'll try to read and understand the options set up by gadmin-samba with its conf file I think you will be wasting your time. Gadmin-samba is hopelessly out of date written originally for Samba Version 2 and never updated. We are now at Version 4 of Samba so many of the parameters used in gadmin-sam...

Re: What is Init.d?

That is way past obsolete. Init.d was replaced by upstart which has replaced by systemd. Could be in a way obsolete. But how it works /etc/rc0.d/ until to /etc/rc6.d/ ?

Re: Changed mount point - how do I fix it?

People who work with fstab fall into two camps: Those that use Disks and those who think that application should be removed from the repository so that the user would never use it. You can always tell when someone used Disks because it produces lines like this: dev/disk/by-uuid/B8264E94264E5392 mnt/...

Re: Changed mount point - how do I fix it?

If you want people on this forum to help you need to provide them with information describing how all of this is set up. You can do that by posting the output of the following commands:

Code: Select all

sudo blkid -c /dev/null -o list

Code: Select all

Re: [SOLVED] Issues Mounting NAS Drive

Yeah I did. Then it's probably the network stack in Mint as altair4 alluded to :? It was worth a try though as there was really nothing to lose. In fairness we really don't know for sure if using a static ip address would have worked or not because we really have no idea how it's being accessed. Th...

Yeah that shows my content. It still dismounts when rebooting though, I am going to assume you mean it doesn't mount at boot. The next time you reboot and it doesn't mount open a terminal and run: sudo mount -a Does it now mount? If it does I suspect it's what I warned you about: [2] Remove the noa...

Re: [SOLVED] Issues Mounting NAS Drive

Assuming you meant /home/bearv/Movies that will work but you have to remember how to access that share.

You can only mount it by accessing the "Movies" link under Network:
