[SOLVED]help for firefox and lan

Post by Janick00 » Tue Oct 16, 2018 10:50 am

hello everyone is new in the linux world and I have a problem with firefox.
I have linux mint 18.1 and a nas with openmediavault and when I want to save a file on the nas from the browser I do not have the possibility to select it from the resources in lan.
I tried to find a solution but nothing helped me
I hope you can do it
thanks

Is this just a problem in Firefox? As in, can you copy files to it with your file manager. Possibly you haven't configured a mount for this nas and so by opening the nas location in your file manager you're dynamically mounting it. The mount wouldn't exist before that. Test that. Open it in your file manager, so that you can see the files on it, then see if you can save to it from Firefox at that time.

When you use nemo to connect to the NAS your share is mounted under this location:

Code: Select all

/run/user/1000/gvfs

[1] Open up Nemo and go to /run/user/1000/gvfs.

[2] Immediately bookmark that location. You will create a link on the side panel of Nemo labeled gvfs.

[3] Now use nemo ( Network > Network ) to connect to your NAS.

[4] When you are in Firefox that exact same link to gvfs appears in the Save As dialogue.

Opening gvfs will reveal all of your mounted shares.
