On my computer I have installed Manjaro Linux with KDE Plasma. Unfortunately, I cannot access the Synology drives here. Under Windows, access to the drives works without any problems.
Also, under Linux I can mount the drives with sshfs without any problems:
sudo mount -t nfs 192.168.178.99:/volume1/Filme.
If I now want to access it with Dolphin, the whole thing looks like this:
Under “Network Devices → Shared Order (SMB)”, “nashome” is still listed correctly. “nashome” is the name of my Synology in the network.
But if I then navigate to “nashome”, the error “The file or folder smb://nashome.local/ does not exist” is displayed.
On my old Linux machine (with Xfce and not KDE as the interface) access via the file browser also worked without problems.
Here also smb://nashome.local/ is given as address. I have a feeling that username and password might be the problem here. Because that’s what I had to enter on my old computer when I first accessed it. As far as I can remember, I didn’t (couldn’t) do that on the new computer. But I don’t know where I could enter the username and password here.
However, I found this thread here, where you were also contributing:
I entered some random username and pw to the network settings for windows shares. After that, I opened dolphin and navigated to the synology drive and I could finally enter the credentials. After that, the access to my synology drives via dolphin worked finally, but only for a short time!
However, after restarting dolphin again, the access doesnt work anymore (I am not asked for username and password anymore). It doesnt even work, if I again change the credentials in the network settings. It only worked for a short time…
I definitely think, the problem is the missing prompt for username and password. It never pops up in dolphin for me…
