OpenSUSE :: Get Nautilus To Play Ball And Allow Sharing Of Samba/NFS Shares Under Folder Properties?

Dec 26, 2010

I'm evaluating OpenSUSE and have installed 11.3 with Gnome (from the latest liveCD) and have it all running fine in a VM at the moment. We are looking at using it for an iSCSI/NFS/Samba server and have it allrunning and it is all configurable from Yast. However I can't seem to get Nautilus to play ball and allow sharing of Samba/NFS shares under folder properties (I'm fairly positive I've done this fine in Ubuntu). All I ever get is Usershare/Gnome sharing (which I believe is Webdav).

I must say I am so impressed with OpenSUSE, the partition manager is just a dream to use and everything works really well it would just be really nice to be able to share NFS/Samaba shares from the file manager. There doesn't seem to be any other file managers in the repositories so I'm a bit stuck now.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Unable To Play Files On NAS Drive From Within Smplayer Over Samba Shares Or Ftp?

May 21, 2011

I have mentioned this in another thread elsewhere but perhaps this is a better location. In Opensuse 11.3 I was able to play files on my NAS drive from within smplayer over samba shares or ftp. I would simply use dolphin to browse to the file on the nas drive (either through samba or ftp protocol), double click the .avi file and it would load smplayer and begin playing immediately.

In 11.4 I have samba set up using the same smb.conf file However, if I double click the .avi file it copies the entire contents to the local computer before launching smplayer. If I use smplayer's file selector and navigate to the file on the samba share I get the message "you can only select local files" This is a different behaviour to that from 11.3 However, using the ftp protocol from within dolphin smplayer launches immediately and begins playing. smplayer is launched using the shortcut command

Code:
smplayer %U
Does anybody have any suggestions on a workaround or how to correct? Using kaffeine I have no problems. Double click the file on the nas drive and kaffeine launches immediately and begins playing.

Fedora :: Samba Shares Not Appearing In Some Nautilus Windows

Nov 23, 2010

I am in the process of migrating my small workplace to a basic spin i've created of f14. Everything is suave but some file browser windows eg: file upload in gmail, hotmail etc, does not show my samba shortcuts i've created nor even the option to browse the network in the "places" section. It shows other locally created shortcuts but no samba ones. Just to test it, even creating an ftp:// shoftcut yeilds no dice. I had a quick search through the forums and I couldn't find anything. I have a feeling this has an easy solution that my inferior brain cannot comprehend! Loving F14 on my macbook pro and so are my employees in my office! Feels much less bloated than Ubuntu IMHO.

Networking :: Samba File/Folder Sharing ?

Jul 14, 2009

I am running OpenSuse 11. It runs Apache webserver and Samba for filesharing. I am also running webmin. Everything works 100%. I have 2 shared folders that can be accessed by everyone. My question is how can I log in to the shared folder from a windows machine when I set the permissions for only a certain user to log in. My system hostname is Linux.site and my user is henk. I am not sure how I need to log in that way. Should the username be Linux.sitehenk ...

It could be that I was not sufficiently clear in my first post here, so I'll explain it very, very slowly and carefully, so as not to cause any you any further confusion.

The original poster is unable to access his Samba shares. The original poster does not understand why and seems to think that it is configured correctly. Other posters have added suggestions about smbpasswd and testparm to check for correct syntax. Presumably, these things have not yet solved the problem, since the OP has not returned to say the problem is solved, though you linking to one of the first links that would appear in a google search for redhat and samba was no doubt wildly and extraordinarily helpful.

So, I had an idea. I recognized that, in a crazy plan to make a functional OS, the authors of Linux had allowed more than one binary to execute simultaneously. This means, that SELinux and samba can both run at the same time. Now, stay with me here - if SELinux is not configured to allow permissions for the samba user on the Samba share.... "permission denied" log errors can occur in Samba. Now, that sounds familiar for some reason. Hmmm... oh, yeah! That was what the original poster mentioned! And, I just dealt with that exact problem, caused by insufficient SELinux permissions!I knew there was a method to my madness.So, anyway, adopting your own ironically sanctimonious tone, I hope you've learned a lesson today that can improve the quality of your posting. This lesson is two-fold: (1) it's not especially good form to quibble with someone trying to help in good faith and (2) if you are going to, it pays to have something tangible to offer to go along with your condescension.No need to thank me - helping you be a better poster is its own reward, and I'm rapidly losing interest in anything you have to say in general, anyway. From what I've seen, it's not anything I couldn't find in under 10 seconds on google.

Debian Configuration :: Samba: Sharing A Folder With Multiple Groups?

Aug 30, 2010

I have a folder, called Vault, that we want to share only with certain people. Because it will contain confidential information.

I want the unix group trustees to have read-only access I want the unix group administrators (and root) to have read/write access

All other users should have no access.

the implementation I have so far is:
folder owner: root:administrators
folder permissions: 770
section from smb.conf

[Code]....

However, this is not working as expected. It currently works as follows:

Normal user: No access (expected) Trustees member: No access (fail. Trustees should be able to read) Administrators member: Read/write access (expected)

Ubuntu Servers :: Sharing An Encfs Non Public Folder With Samba?

Jun 7, 2011

I've been trying to share a folder with samba. This folder is the decrypted version of an encfs encrypted folder. Mounting the decrypted folder on the server is done automatically on login using gnome-encfs. Exposing the folder locally works like a charm. Now where I get stuck is trying to access the samba share from a client (even with smbclient on the server itself). I can see the share with smbclient -L:

tijm64@tijm64-HTPC:~$ smbclient -L 192.168.1.100
Enter tijm64's password:
Domain=[TIJM64] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.4.7]

Networking :: Can't View List Of Shares In Nautilus But Can Browse Shares Directly?

Dec 11, 2008

I run opensuse 11 at work. I'm trying to see the list of shares on a "server" that is running windows server 2000. If I try smb://server, it doesn't show any shares, but I can browse directly to it such as smb://server/share1. If I use smbclient, it returns the list of shares correctly. I guess I just don't understand why smbclient shows the list of shared folders, but nautilus cannot.

OpenSUSE :: Kde And Samba Shares - How To Mount

Feb 25, 2011

From Konqueror/Dolphin is possible to access samba shares. If your computer is joined to a Active Directory domain and you use a domain user, you can access samba shares with smb://server.domain/share and you are not ask for user/pass (you use a kerberos tiquet). Kde programs as Amarok, K3b, ... can access files in samba shares without problem. But other programs, specially gnome programs (including the popular OpenOffice), are unable to use files in a samba share. If instead of using Konqueror/dolphin you use Nautilus, there is no problem because it maps the share to a local folder ($HOME/.gvfs/share in sever/) and the program are able to access files in samba shares without problems as the folder is mounted locally (as if you use cifs.mount). Its a problem to use konqueror/dolphin and have to change to nautilus to access samba shares.

If you use Windows you can mount it in an easy way. That's what I try to do from konqueror, not having to open a konsole and be able to mount the share in an easy way. I've tried with smb4k, but is has not worked for me (tried in 2 OpenSuse 11.3 and 1 opensuse 11.2). What Nautilus does when accessing a samba shares like smb://server.domain.dom/share is to execute the command: [URL]... What I try is to do the same, but just form Konqueror/Dolphin. I'd like to add a button to Konqueror/dolphin that pressing the button and if the URL points to a samba share, the share is mounted in $HOME/LocalNetwork/server/share. As I say, it can be as easy as executing the gvfs-mount, but don't know how.

OpenSUSE Network :: Accessing Samba Shares In KDE?

Jan 6, 2010

I wonder how to get Samba share access working well...Dolphin supports Samba but it doesn't really mount anything, it seems... Non-KDE Applications therefor can't access samba that way. In Gnome there was a workaround for the same problem. You could simply go to ~/.gvfs in any application and find the samba mounted there.Is there anything like that in KDE? I set up a Samba mount via /etc/fstab for now but that is quite annoying because it fails after each Suspend, changing WLAN Access Points, etc. Then I have to go to the console and manually launch sudo mount -a to get it working again. How can I make things more comfortable?

P.S.: I'm even up for using something else than Samba to talk to my fileserver. However I don't know of anything that would work better in this regard. (NFS would have the exactly same problem for example)

OpenSUSE Network :: Cannot Write To Samba Shares?

Sep 15, 2011

Using SuSE 11./4 on two machines. Successfully set up a server to share a folder. The client is able to read files from the folder, but not write to them.the client perspective, the shared folder permissions are read and write if owner, read only for all otherHowever, the server shared folder has been set up for sharing, and the permissions are set for read and write to all.

One more thing. When the client goes into the samba share, it sees the workgroup. Clicking into that, it sees the name of the server computer. Clicking into that,it sees two folders: "profiles" and "users". Clicking into "users" goes into the shared folder. I tried setting the permissions from the client side on the "users" folder using root privileges to allow reading and writing without any success

My computers / drives attached to my network should be viewable here yet they are not. However, if I type in the address directly I can view and access my shares.e.g.

Here is a copy of my smb.conf

OpenSUSE Install :: Samba Shares Do Not Mount At Boot Time?

Mar 12, 2010

opesnSuse 11.1, linux 2.6.27.45-0.1-default x86_64 This host has two samba shares that are located on an OS/2 server. Neither mount at boot time but they do mount from the command line.

kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -6

There are 5 other client computers that mount the same shares at boot time using almost (different user/pass info) identical data. I do not see what is different about this host.

OpenSUSE Network :: Automatically Reconnecting Samba Shares (from Fstab)

Mar 16, 2010

Since OpenSuse 11.2 doesn't reconnect samba shares upon a resume from suspend, I wrote a small, ugly script to do so. It's placed in /etc/pm/sleep.d/66samba-remount

#!/bin/bash
case $1 in
hibernate)
echo "Hey guy, we are going to suspend to disk!"
/etc/init.d/smbfs stop ;;
suspend)
/etc/init.d/smbfs stop ;;
thaw)
echo "oh, suspend to disk is over, we are resuming..."
sleep 15
/etc/init.d/smbfs restart ;;
resume)
sleep 15
/etc/init.d/smbfs restart ;;
*) echo "somebody is calling me totally wrong." ;;
esac

and made it executable
(as root)
chmod +x /etc/pm/sleep.d/66samba-remount

The 15 seconds sleep time is useful to me to postpone the remount after WiFi is back online. Perhaps there are way more elegant ways to do so (check for x times if WiFi is on, for example), but I'm no good at bash, and this serves me well. How do I file a wishlist for 11.3? If someone puts a samba share in fstab, I'd assume he wants it connected mostly everytime (at startup for sure... so why not over a standby?) I hope 11.3 just reconnects in-fstab samba shares in a polished way, out of the box.

OpenSUSE Network :: SAMBA: Can Mount Windows Shares But They Are Read-only

Apr 1, 2010

I am using the mount command to mount Windows shared folders are another machine on my LAN, to have them show up in the Linux filesystem. The command mounts the folders just fine, however the access is read-only.

In the command, I am also using the -o option to specify a username and password that should have full access. Also, I have used this identical command on my other distros and it seems to work fine. I've Googled high and low, trying to find a way to specify a Samba user/password for authentication. I know one of the other distros had a program that I could specify a Samba user/password to simulate a Windows login.

OpenSUSE Network :: Samba Shares Stay Unmounted After Resume From Suspend

Mar 15, 2010

To workaround the kio_smb madness, I set up shares to be mounted via /etc/fstab. It works flawlessly until I suspend my laptop. Coming back from suspend, samba mounts are not being re-mounted automatically. Since I'm new to opensuse, I wish to ask you:
Is there a polished way to make this happen, in opensuse approach?
Or shall I just go and toy with scripts in the init.d (or what is it in suse)?
As much as I could figure, I checked in yast, and smbfs service is signed as "Yes".

OpenSUSE Network :: Folder Sharing To A Windows 7 Pc?

I have an opensuse machine - 11.4, running KDE as my desktop. My wifes computer is a Windows 7 PC.

I have installed SAMBA and have configured it to load at each boot. I have set the domain name to WORKGROUP as this is domain name my wife has on her pc. I have shared the video folder within Dolphin in KDE. I'm uncertain about the meaning of the netbios setting (despite reading Chapter29.Samba) and whether I should adjust this setting. Basically, I'm able to see my wife's computer name within Linux, though within Windows, I'm unable to see my linux network. Is it due to the settings that I currently have on my linux pc. The documentation that I'm reading so far is confusing for me.

OpenSUSE :: Nautilus: Get The Opened Folder To The Top?

May 13, 2010

I was wondering if there is a way to make Nautilus scroll up when opening folders. If I open a folder at the bottom of the page, the subfolders open below and I have to use the scroll bar to move down the page to see what's under the top folder. I would like to have it put the opened folder at the top of the page so I can see as many subfolders and files as possible without having to scroll. Something like the file roller when you are looking for a place to extract files. It does exactly what I'm looking for. Are there any settings I can change in Nautilus that would provide this function?
