Map drive on LAN (Solved)

Postby msm » Fri Dec 16, 2011 8:06 am

I have a wireless drive connected to an Asus RT-N56U router. The drive is shown on my Xoom under LAN in the File Manager app, but I can't see the drive under Network in LMDE. Is there an easy guide for mapping a wireless LAN drive in LMDE?

Make sure you have the following packages installed:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gvfs-fuse
sudo apt-get install libsmbclient
sudo apt-get install smbclient
sudo apt-get install python-smbc

Then run the following command and post the output:

Code: Select all

smbtree
