I AM SORRY, but please ignore this question.
I just rebooted the computers, and the problem went away. I should have done that before posting.
If the post should be deleted, I will do that.
When I have to use files in a Windows computer while logged into Manjaro, I mount the Windows location (usually the whole partition) into a Manjaro folder or use Thunar with an address such as:
But today I found this interesting little problem of not being able rename a particular Windows location, which goes:
When I try, I am told “Permission denied.” When I retry, Thunar quits without a word. All that, when I could readily rename locations just above or below it e.g.
Again, I am unable to rename:
when I can rename
smb://username@host/partition/some/random/phrases/smb/android to windows
I did not do anything on the Windows side with permissions or sharing except to share the whole partition and give “full control” permissions to
username. That is, I didn’t do anything to
How could I explain this selective inability? Is there something special to the two phrases that cannot be renamed?
Obviously, this is not life and death. I don’t have to rename those things but would like to understand what is up. Thanks.
I would also like to mention that all the colors and bold typeface (for
to) in the quoted address are not my work.
