Re: Missing Context Menu Item?

Hi Thank you for this. Weirdly, changing the "Open with" works with some files but not others? I have done that before though to get it working. The second part is : Kernel: 4.18.0-13-generic x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 7.3.0 Desktop: MATE 1.20.1 Distro: Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa base: Ubuntu 18.04...

Missing Context Menu Item?

Hi

I seem to have developed two issues in the past week?

1) When I right click a file, to get "Open Parent Location", it just opens Banshee?

2) When I open an album in VLC, the volume drops from whatever to 0% and I have to manually lift it again?

Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks
K

Re: File permissions - Owner not me anymore?

It needed the global mount options of uid=1000,gid=1000 to set the owner:group to studio. So creating a test file should work now touch /media/nas/test ls -lh /media/nas/test This is about the best I can do here not have that device in front of me. If the test file is created - which it should be -...

Re: File permissions - Owner not me anymore?

And if you ls -lhd /media/nas it will probably show root as the owner. Let me see the mount line you're using now. studio@studio-Centurion-CQ9204:~$ ls -lhd /media/nas drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 May 23 18:01 /media/nas sudo mount -v -t cifs //192.168.1.164/kylerickards /media/nas -o credentials=/home...

Paste back the session results of sudo chown -v studio:studio /media/nas
studio@studio-Centurion-CQ9204:~$ sudo chown -v studio:studio /media/nas
[sudo] password for studio:
changed ownership of '/media/nas' from root:root to studio:studio

I'm just trying to create an empty file called test which should not return an error if you have read/write permissions - apparently no yet. What does ls -lhd /media/nas and ls-lhd /media/nas/Various181009 return Make sure the nas drive is mounted before doing the above. Mounted and still is: First...

Re: File permissions - Owner not me anymore?

Can you list a file on the nas with ls -lh and the source file with the same so I can see if there's a difference. Also paste back touch /media/nas/Various181009/test ls -lh /media/nas/Various181009/test Hiya First file from NAS -rwxrwxrwx 1 studio studio 7.2M Feb 3 2011 '01. Chaplin - Main Theme.m...

Re: File permissions - Owner not me anymore?

Actually I've just checked, and other files/folders that I've copied to the NAS (aside from that music one which was the issue) do have all the right attributes/ownership? Did I miss a bit?

Re: File permissions - Owner not me anymore?

Do you know the the format of the filesystem :?: If it's ntfs then it doesn't support preserving owner:group and file mode bits. Also I found on page 39-40 how to set a static IP if yours keeps changing. Look through wget https://www.seagate.com/files/www-content/manuals/seagate-personal-cloud/pdf/...

Hi all (With apologies to WharfRat who is probably sick of me now!) I have managed to finally copy all the data from my USB drive to the NAS unit. However, when I check the file attributes of the backed up data, it is showing a padlock and saying the owner is Root and as such I am limited in what I ...

Re: Back Up a Hard Drive

Try sudo rsync -aviuh --progress --stats with your paths. It could also be caused by mount permissions as everything was eliminates just to get a simple mount working. Ok, I am running it in grsync at the moment. (Sorry for being slow on the uptake, should I run that command with the line about pat...

Ah! Perhaps a Eureka moment, I re-entered your command to the the terminal after noticing that my drive had reassigned it's ip to 192.168.1.164 (as opposed to 192.168.1.64) and that has worked straight away and now shows the nas as port/drive in "my computer:///" (sadly, only for the Personal folder...
