Re: fstab and Windows 10 Pro shares

[global] workgroup = ICMS client min protocol = SMB3 You don't want the client min to be SMB3 you want client max to be SMB3: client max protocol = SMB3 But none of that has anything to do with CIFS. Even through the samba client and CIFS are both samba CIFS isn't controlled by smb.conf it's contro...

Re: How to unzip a file??

A *.zip.part file is a partially downloaded file. It has either not finished downloading or something interrupted the download. Try downloading it again.

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

That worked, thank you. But how come it does not work with nemo? Alt-F2 -> nemo-pkexec Please note: This is a thought experiment that got totally out of control.

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...

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

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

Re: Samba....

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. There is a copy of the default smb.conf if you are interested in resetting yourself: Rename the bad smb.conf: sudo mv /etc/samba/smb.conf /...

Re: Thunar can not browse Windows network

Ubuntu 18.04 and the version of Samba that comes with it made many changes.

Re: connect to windows file shares?

You did not specify which version and what desktop you are using in Mint. You did not specify how you used Connect to Server ( by name or ip address ), what error message you got when you tried, or if SMBv1 has been disabled in Win10.

Re: Samba running two sessions?

You will likely have to remain with Mint18 for quite some time. Ubuntu finally enabled mDNS in samba with Ubuntu 18.04 so when everything is working correctly your Mint19 machines will appear twice: ** Once using the deprecated netbios mechanism which resolves to smb://gerard ** And agin using mDNS ...

You don't need to install a VirtualBox guest OS from a DVD or USB. You can install it directly from wherever you downloaded the ISO file:

Re: Samba works partially only

I really have to stop for the day. If you successfully connected to the machine with the smbclient "//192.168.0.13/Asus Shared" command then start moving up the food chain until you find the point where it breaks: [1] Do the gvfs-mount: gvfs-mount smb://"192.168.0.13/Asus Shared" [2] If that works f...

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

Re: Samba works partially only

Other than your share on 192.168.0.42 being empty it looks like the samba client is working properly. The next step up is actually mounting the share with gvfs. In Mint18 the command would be: gvfs-mount smb://192.168.0.42/HP-Shared If it just came back to the prompt it mounted successfully. You sho...

Interesting that there is no error with the first smbclient command. Take this one step further please: Open a terminal and run: smbclient //192.168.0.42/HP-Shared If the share requires credentials run the command this way to pass a user name: smbclient //192.168.0.42/HP-Shared -U some-user-name If ...

Re: Samba works partially only

I would first check obvious things like firewalls in the Windows machines, etc ... I would stick with ip address at first since except for Win10 Linux is forced to use the deprecated netbios mechanism to access Windows machines by name. I would also bypass Nemo just in case it's some bug in that or ...
