Hi. I’m using Manjaro from a while and I have a problem trying to share a folder from dolphin contextual menu. This is my setup: I have Manjaro installed in a SSD and I have a different disk for almost all the data what is formatted in NTFS.
I want to share a folder that is in this NTFS partition and when I want to do it from the context menu of dolphin it says that I need to change permissions of
/run/media/masacroso to 0751 (it is in 0750). Then I try to do it in a terminal with the comand
chmod 0751 /run/media/masacroso and it throw and error saying that this is impossible, so I try again using sudo and it works.
Then I check if the folder is shared and in the samba status app it says its shared. However I can’t see this folder shared going to
smb://. Then I restart to see if after a reboot the folder appear in
smb://, however it doesn’t, so I check in the context menu of dolphin if this folder is shared and I see again that it is not shared because the permissions of
/run/media/masacroso doesn’t have the permissions of 0751, just 0750 (I see it running
stat /run/media/masacroso in a terminal).
So, why the permissions reset after a reboot? Its related to the fact that I’m trying to share a folder of an NTFS partition? Thank you in advance.
