Re: [SOLVED] Mint 19 Network SAMBA shares not showing File Manager

And no, the .smb folder does not exist by default, it must be manually created.

Re: [SOLVED] Mint 19 Network SAMBA shares not showing File Manager

before you go through reboot orgies, try to edit $HOME/.smb/smb.conf and add just the bare necessities: [global] client max protocol = SMB3_10 client min protocol = SMB2 For some funny reason, the gvfs subsystem (running in userspace) seems to prefer the user's smb.conf over the system's smb.conf. I...

[SOLVED] Thunar, Samba and NetApp Appliances

This bugged me for quite some time - ever since Mint 19.1 I could not access some samba shares on NetApp appliances via Thunar. It's a known problem that NetApp appliances of a certain age don't like the SMB3_11 protocol. But all attempts to set "client max protocol = SMB3_10" in /etc/samba/smb.conf...

Re: gksudo command solved

Thunar still seems to be hardcoded to use gksu when right-click on a folder and select "open as root".
Solution was to symlink gksu -> pkexec in /usr/bin.
But I am sure there are better solutions...

Can you post the exclude file in a new thread and link from here. My notes on Timeshift files are here: https://petermoulding.com/timeshift
Basically you run "swapon --show" and exclude everything that has a type of "file", eg.

Code: Select all

swapon --show | tr -s " " | grep " file " | cut -d " " -f 1

Re: Linux Mint 19 codenamed “Tara”

Gave the XFCE version a whirl (in a VirtualBox running on top of 18.3). Neat. Like it. Some Icons need getting used to, but hey. One thing however: in TimeShift, the users' homes are excluded - so far, so good. But then wouldn't it make sense to exclude other files by default as well, namely /swapfi...
