Re: smb bookmarks to windows 7 stopped working

That part is fine; 192.168.0.5 is supposedly the system he's doing the pinging from . I.e., reproduce by pinging a non-existing IP on your own LAN; you'll see your own IP reporting the "Host Unreachable" state. altair@vus5:~$ ping 192.168.1.100 -c3 PING 192.168.1.100 (192.168.1.100) 56(84) bytes of...

Re: Henry's MacBook Pro listed under Network immediately after Mint install

Nope. Nemo brings with it gvfs-backends and that brings with it the ability to discover and connect to all sorts of network entities if they are configured to do so. In your example: gvfsd-smb-browse = discovers Windows SMB shares via netbios if there are any on the network and creates the Windows N...

Re: fstab and Windows 10 Pro shares

I can't imagine why one would work (sudo mount -a) but the other not??? Because fstab is being executed before the network stack is operational on your Mint machine. Here's two options: [1] Force a mount -a at every boot. ** Create a script at /etc/network/if-up.d/fstab ** With this content: #!/bin...

Re: Running pkexec in terminal works but not in Alt-F2

Welcome to the wacky world of Linux on the Desktop. You just can't willy nilly run pkexec as if it were a replacement for gksu. That would make far too much sense. Instead for every application that you want to use pkexec it's inventor imagined that a Policykit "policy" be created that allows the en...

I press Alt-F2, type "pkexec synaptic", nothing happens.
Press Alt-F2 then type "synaptic-pkexec" instead.

That is definitely the result of using gadmin-samba . No one in any forum will help you debug that thing. If it otherwise works somehow just ignore the errors.

You will likely have to remain with Mint18 for quite some time.

Re: Samba works partially only

smbclient //192.168.0.13/Asus Shared -U
You need quotes around it because of the space in the share name:

Code: Select all

smbclient "//192.168.0.13/Asus Shared" -U
