Re: Caja (file manager) SMB Error

Hopefully this is just a temporary bug. Users were complaining that their drives were broken. As a temporary workaround, I am forcing a mount of all the drives through gvfs at logon. But that increases the logon time for people that do not use the drives. I hope a fix will be pushed down in the next...

Re: MintMenu Appearance

https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/1196160 That solved the problem (even if it's just a workaround).

Marked solved since there is a bug report in about this.

Re: GVFS and Mount Point

Thanks for the reply. I will add the gvfsd-fuse command to the startup apps and see if that works. I can get around the atypical folder characters by using a symlink. EDIT: It worked. I will put the CIFS automount method on my todo list. I just need to research how to make it use the keyring instead...

Re: SMB password not saved to keyring

Well, the problem seems to be with the "Connect to Server..." option in Caja. If you pick this and enter the server info, then user/pass, and check "Remember This Password", it will not save it. However, when running "smb://ip_to_resource/share_name" in the location textbox, it will prompt for creds...

Re: MintMenu Appearance

I kept changing themes until I got one that made it look better. Still not the same as before.

But, I found an error in the logs:

The GTK+ theme engine aurora is not installed.

Though gtk2-engines-aurora is installed.

A reinstall did not help.

SMB password not saved to keyring [SOLVED]

In the recent update SMB passwords are no longer saved in the keyring. Even if you select "save password" when mounting the share. It just prompts again everytime.

I read that the workaround is to pass creds to the mount command (gvfs-mount in this case). But that is not a very secure workaround.

GVFS and Mount Point [SOLVED]

I know there are a TON of threads about where GVFS mounts SMB directories... but in the latest update it doesn't mount them at any of the ones I have found: NOT: /run/user/<username>/gvfs ~/.gvfs ~/.cache/gvfs And it doesn't show up in the list when running the mount command. Also, the /usr/lib/gvfs...

MintMenu Appearance [SOLVED]

After update 7 my mint menu looks like hell. It is all blocky and does not have the styling it used to.

I am not sure how to describe it...

Changing the appearance themes does not solve the problem. Also tried reinstalling mintmenu.

Script to Mount Windows Shares at Logon

I have found the old method of editing fstab to auto-mount shares at startup not useful for a NAS that goes to sleep after a period of time. The NAS takes a few seconds to startup and the fstab mount fails. So I tried a different method, and made a little script to mount them at logon. Then I added ...

Re: Stability Anyone?

After taking some of the feedback here, I have tried a few alternatives. Debian was very stable, much like I remember Linux should be. It supports almost all the things I need to get work done. I will stick with it until the people developing Gnome 3 pull it together. Stability for me still equals L...

Thanks for the reply MALsPa. I have not tried the Debian version yet, but I will try that tonight. It seems everyone is quick to make excuses in defense of something that is broken, so thank you for the constructive reply.

Re: Stability Anyone?

The number of Linux users has been in a steady decline for a year. The "pointless in any direction" attitude does not help to move it in a positive direction. So I am going to do what most users probably did, and just give up, and accept the garbage? Or maybe I should will switch to a more stable op...

Re: Stability Anyone?

It may be a transition period, but that shouldn't last for over a year . It is absurd to try and drag your customer base through a release like Linux Mint 12 and expect the same loyalty once the dust settles. There's got to be a better way to do it than experimenting on your target users by subjecti...

Stability Anyone?

I love Linux Mint. I have been using it for years because of how stable and simple it is to use. Even my wife (who has no idea how to use a computer) uses Linux Mint because of how easy it is. When Linux Mint 10 was released, I hesitated a bit, but went ahead and upgraded anyway. It got fixed over t...

Re: umount and deleting mount point

No matter how you want to play this game - either by unmounting the device or unmounting the device from the mount point - the mount point should remain. My fstab: Yes, that is the case for all my drives/shares except that one. It is very odd that it would delete the mount point on umount, but at l...

Re: umount and deleting mount point

I figured out the issue related to the NAS. When it tried to mount using smbfs while the NAS was in standby (hard drive spin down), it would hang until it was out of standby. Mounting the network share using cifs does not reproduce that issue. However, I would like to know what alternative you use f...

Re: umount and deleting mount point

A simple solution would be to manually create a folder in /media to correspond to your fstab that way it would not be a temp folder. I have a couple a Samba shares that I auto mount in my fstab to /media that work fine. I am manually creating the folder, and umount deletes it. This is what has conf...
