Samba mounted 'drives' order in Nemo

Post by afora »

I have a samba server which is accessed from a LM 19.3. I mount the drives in /etc/fstab as follows:

Code: Select all

    //192.168.1.100/DATA           /media/bru/DATA            cifs uid=bru,gid=bru,credentials=/usr/as/samba/mysamba.cnf 0 0
    //192.168.1.100/SAM1           /media/bru/SAM1           cifs uid=bru,gid=bru,credentials=/usr/as/samba/mysamba.cnf 0 0
    //192.168.1.100/SAM2           /media/bru/SAM2           cifs uid=bru,gid=bru,credentials=/usr/as/samba/mysamba.cnf 0 0
Everything work fine, but the order of the drives loaded above is reversed in Nemo's LHS bar when LM is started. I tried changing the order of the lines in /etc/fstab but it stays as reverse alphanumerical.

Code: Select all

    Network
        SAM2
        SAM1
        DATA   
Is there any way I could:

- arrange them in an arbitrary order?
- arrange them at least in alphabetical order?

Thank you so much!

You could bookmark the locations then arrange them any way you want.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

I could do that, but it will be far from ideal due to:

- it will mix folders and volumes and will make it confusing to the user
- use up quite a little bit of space in the LHS bar by duplicating all network entries (I have closer to a dozen network drives).

I have no idea but do they show up in the same order in the bookmarks file?

Code: Select all

cat /home/$USER/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks
If you rearrange them there do they show up in the order you prefer?
