Re: PLEX Media Manager

I brought this up years ago and from the lack of response I got I assumed everyone thought I was crazy but .... I don't use plex but from all the posts about this thing it appears to run as the user plex. That causes all sorts of issues and in partucular this topic since it's trying to access a dire...

Re: First time, connecting Win 10 and Mint 18: want to read files from Win

First thing I would check is to see if this is a name resolution problem. Can you ping the machine by that name: ping -c3 LAPTOP-XXXX Can you mount the share by ip address - for example: sudo mount -t cifs -o username=WindowsUser //192.168.0.100/test /home/guillermo/shared Side note: Win10 can now s...

Re: Auto mount external ext4 HDD with read-write

Question: Do you plan on using this external HDD on other machines? You could make it so that any external hdd mounts r/w regardless of how permissions are set on the partition but it would only be applicable to you. For example: [1] Make a directory: sudo mkdir /MyMedia [2] Install bindfs: sudo apt...

Re: Auto mount external ext4 HDD with read-write

Weird. I've remounted it and its now "normal" but I still can't write to it.
Because you didn't chown or chmod the mounted partition.

Re: Auto mount external ext4 HDD with read-write

Neither Windows or macOS will detect let alone mount or make accessible to anyone an external HDD formatted to ext4. If your external HDD was formatted to fat32 all three OS's will mount it so that it is r/w to the user. If your external HDD was formatted to NTFS Windows and Linux will automout with...

Re: Rename a SMB volume on Mint 19

Not sure why I didn't notice this before but you have another syntax error. I cannot reproduce your same characters but something like this is incorrect: //10.96.255.42/'name of folder' /media/'name of folder' .... That is not the way you declare a path with spaces in fstab. For every space you need...

Re: Windows Network folder is empty

Your friend was right. Linux is just for geeks. Anyhoo ..... you have a dilemma when it comes to Win10. Samba made some shages to how the client works - becasue of WIn10 ironically enough - that inadvertently disabled it's ability to "discover" Windows hosts using netbios. This is explained here: Mi...

Re: Rename a SMB volume on Mint 19

You might not want them to automount. Give this a shot: On Demand CIFS Mounting of Shares The concept here is you create a mount point under /media or the users home directory and use cifs not gvfs ( which the file manager uses ). Then the name of the share displayed in the file manager will match t...

Re: Permissions and Samba Shares SOLVED

In my case I specify the owner (and password) in a separate credentials file. No you do not. What you are doing is passing a user name and password the server requires and validates in order to access the share. Without declaring a uid in the cifs mount expression it would still be owned by root an...

Why is it necessary to set this differently to the ownership of the folders on the server, with the permissions allocated as per the user identification in the 'creds' file?

It's about to get more confusing.
