Hi again, Hopefully someone can help my another time.
My wife is still using Windows Vista for her work preparation (she is a teacher). Now I prepared this machine for her and convinced her, that it is really the time for a change (to this manjaro PC).
On the Vista machine I shared a folder, i want to grab all her old data and move it to the new computer. On the linux device i installed Samba, added a user to samba, and installed the thunar-share plugin for the browser.
I am able to find and access the windows machine in the network part of thunar. I also find the shared folder there. When I want to access (doubleclick) it, a dialog is asking for a user and password, or to acess anonymous. I try both, but then nothing happens, the dialog gets grey, disabled and i can wait forever (is a it a problem mounting it? maybe?). i installed Nemo and also can find the shared folder. Accessing it results in a dialog "Opening " which will load forever.
All I can think of right now is checking an ensuring the permissions are on the windoze machine. I don’t have any advice except that. Ensure the directory is shared publicaly as this will only be for a short while and also not on a public network.
