For some reason the forum tells me I can’t insert picture, so I’ll type it out the best I can, in the ideal program, like my web browser, it functions well, so you aa file explorer where on the left you see your favorited items and can navigate freely
Network Home(The samba share I need)
…etc, I think I’ve made my point, you see hard drives, flash drives, network, everything, but in some programs like freeoffice, when you go to save or open a file, all you have access to is the manjaro drive, so this
So the issue is that I can’t access most of my storage unless I save the file somewhere and copy and paste there manually every single time. Idk if it’s an issue with the builtt in file browsers of certain programs, or if I need to configure something, but everything is mounted.
Two questions, I wanted to copy and paste your command, I wasn’t super sure what to change to for testdomain, so I ran it as domain=testdomain //192.168.50.112/home /home/james/share
and received this error Couldn’t chdir to /home/james/share: No such file or directory
so then I tried domain=//192.168.50.112/home /home/james/share
and got this mount: /home/james/share: can’t find in /etc/fstab.
So I’m thinking the testdomain was the one to use, am I supposed to first create that share directory?
So I got the temporary way to work, but on startup the fstab didn’t work, I had to use a terminal based emergency mode, and I ended up just using vim to remove the line I added. Instead of using /mnt/NAS I’m using /home/james/home, what does “cifs uid=1000” do, I think that’s what it didn’t work but the temporary way to mount it did.
So I tried it again, and this time after restarting, I got to my desktop, but it didn’t mount, when I access the folder, in dolphin, it says An error occurred while accessing ‘/home/james/home’, the system responded: mount: /etc/fstab: parse error at line 12 – ignored mount: /home/james/home: can’t find in /etc/fstab.
This is what I have in fstab for it //192.168.50.112/home /home/james/home cifs uid=1001, username=MY_USERNAME,password=MY_PASSWORD,domain=WORKGROUP
kio-fuse package will automatically create a virtual directory on our machine after you manually mount your smb:// folder with dolphin.
So it will be accessible to all applications by /run/user/1001/kio-fuse-xxx/smb/ while with fstab you have /home/james/home/
So it’s another solution (without fstab/mount at boot) but:
Okay, so that works out of the box, and I like that, but I would rather get fstab to work better, it would automatically do it now that I vaguely understand how it works. With this kio method, I can navigate, to the folder, but I have to do a lot of clunky searching for the path, currently I found part of the solution was to get rid of a space but now I’m not getting write permission all the way so idk whether to settle for this or not.
So i’ve found part of the problem, initially, was that I had a space during the options, and apparently, that’s not allowed. Anyways, I’ve got it kinda configured right, almost verbatim what you’ve been typing with all variations, and they all return this error. “mount.cifs: permission denied”, weirdest thing, If I run mount -a, I get that error, if I run sudo mount -a, no problem.
