Re: How to set up SAMBA sharing with 19.2 Xfce?

However, Thunar is still giving me the previously-pictured "Failed to open" error. What previously-pictured "Failed to open" error? Is it in this post? http://i.imgur.com/8dJOBbB.png (Sorry, it was in my post immediately prior to that one.) Thank you very very much for your continuing attention to ...

Re: extract a zip to new folder with same name

Ah yes--thanks Larry!--I see that plus sign inside a folder if I click Extract To.

I guess before that I'll F2 then Ctrl-C to load the zipname into the clipboard.

I was hoping that like in other OS' the extract functionality could do this for us.

Re: How to set up SAMBA sharing with 19.2 Xfce?

Wow, I can now connect to the Mint shares from my A500 ! (Thank you very much Altair4!) So I guess I don't need to tell you that I have a SAMBA user: bill@Dual:~$ sudo pdbedit -L [sudo] password for bill: bill:1000:Bill bill@Dual:~$ (I don't know where the capital "B" came from, and I found I could ...

Re: How to set up SAMBA sharing with 19.2 Xfce?

I made progress but not to SAMBA-completion either to or from the A-500. From: Thunar doesn't present me with a login opportunity: http://i.imgur.com/8dJOBbB.png To: The A-500 "sees" both shares I created and offers me a login opportunity to each of them, but the username and password I created aren...

Re: How to set up SAMBA sharing with 19.2 Xfce?

OMG it's the esteemed Altair4, thank you so very much!! I don't think the A-500 User Manual would've been any help, I can't see any indication of the SAMBA version. They didn't do firmware updates for long after the device debuted almost 4 years ago. Regardless I apologize for not linking to it, par...

Re: How to set up SAMBA sharing with 19.2 Xfce?

Thank you very much, gentlemen! But that was the thread I linked to (in the first 4 words of my OP) which directed me to the other thread that I asked about in #1. (On the bright side, now I don't feel like I didn't get as far as I could without crawling here begging for help.) Maybe if I can get pa...

Re: How to set up SAMBA sharing with 19.2 Xfce?

I just realized, all that this tutorial is helping with is to set folders as shareable. This isn't really getting you all that much closer to what you eventually want to achieve. I guess that's true; I thought I might possibly be able to Samba stuff off the share from the other device as soon as it...

Ooops right I hadn't even got far enough to notice that the buttons were greyed out. I'm logged in as my normal user created when installed. That command returned nothing: http://i.imgur.com/Ge3sdJT.png (I think I got that right because I tried swapping -bill and/or $BILL for -user and/or $USER but ...

How to set up SAMBA sharing with 19.2 Xfce?

According to one thread I want to " Create Samba Shares Directly from Thunar " but there is so much I don't understand. I have no Windows machine at the moment; I'm trying to share with a networked media player ("Popcorn Hour A-500") whose SAMBA server I have used to share with deceased Windows mach...

Re: GTK3 scrollbar trough/tracks and buttons became huge

Thank you very much for your reply, diapasson! Honestly I don't think I'd thought to change those lines, but I just did (I adjusted the width parameters on lines 1749, 1753 and 1759) I also tried changing line 1761 ("background-position") just because it was a suspiciously huge 54px. Despite monkeyi...

Re: GTK3 scrollbar trough/tracks and buttons became huge

I have the exact same issue with /usr/share/themes/Mint-Y-Dark-Purple/gtk-3.0/gtk.css when I do nothing but set steppers to 'true' (I don't see where to modify the stepper size, just how to make them 'true' or 'false'.) I also noticed others with this question over in https://forums.linuxmint.com/vi...

Re: scroll: arrows, wider bar for file manager

Mr. Een is excellent! (He even knew the autohidy scrollbar would annoy me even though I hadn't gotten around to noticing that it does!) I treasure learning how confine my risk to editing those read-only files, thank you very much, Mr. Een! But while (like the thing I mentioned I tried in the OP) it ...

Deluge firewalled

Deluge is firewalled using the exact same settings with which Transmission isn't firewalled. (I know not to run them both on the same Port at the same time; in fact I never even opened Transmission until the day after I couldn't get Deluge unfirewalled.) In each case I added to Firewall as Preconfig...

Re: scroll: arrows, wider bar for file manager

Thank you very much for your helpful reply, diapason! I found /usr/share/themes/Mint-Y-Dark-Purple/gtk-3.0/gtk.css (Xfce doesn't have Setting|Themes, just Settings|Appearance when I've chosen "Mint-Y-Dark-Purple") Since it's read-only to me I think I need to ask: How can I most safely assume root pe...

scroll: arrows, wider bar for file manager

The only place I need scroll arrows (aka steppers) and want a thicker scroll bar is in my file manager, when I'm selecting specific files to drag. Since my trackball has no scroll wheel, I want to click a scroll arrow to change the rows that appear on the screen without messing up my file selections...
