How to access SMB on Deepin File Manager

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Does anyone know how to access an SMB share on Deepin's File Manager? I want to know since I have a share on a laptop that I am using as a share but Deepin cannot see it for some reason. I don't know if it doesn't support SMB or what. I do have Samba and it is accessible on my desktop on Windows. If anyone knows how to, I would love to know. By the way, I'm using Arch Linux.


Brah, do you even Java?

You can just mount it in the terminal, then make a shortcut to the mount point.

How do I do that, I never did anything like that?

open terminal 

 

then make a mount point.

 

So sudo mkdir /mnt/mountlocation

 

then mount the share 

 

so sudo mount -t cifs //ipofserver/share /mnt/mountloaction -o username=yourusename.

I can read from it, but I can't write to it.

This kind of thing should be doable from the GUI. I don't use SMB (since I don't have Windowses, excep in my apartment LOL) nor Deepin.

 

However, this is among the first results if I google "deepin samba". What happens if you try to write 'smb://' into the address bar of the file manager?

 

If all else fails, then the approach suggested by Electronics Wizardry is a sound one. Linux distributions have had SMB support for ages, but to use it properly, you need to read it's documentation (and or your distributions Wiki) to learn how to do authentication etc.

This makes me think the share you are trying to access is not writable by anonymous (certainly recommended!) and you have not properly authenticated yourself.

Nope. I use deepin Linux myself so it doesn’t. What you can do however is download another file manager which does.

At least on Deepin 15.8 you can simply type "SMB://<host name or IP address>/<share name>" into the search bar of the Deepin File Manager, and a dialog box will appear prompting you for the username and password if the share URL you entered is valid.

 

I have no problem connected to a Windows 10 hosted shared directory using this method.

What's the trick to making the Deepin file manager be able to see other Windows systems when you go to Computers in LAN->Windows Network?

 
I was running Zorin OS before this and its file manager could browse a Windows network just fine.

Same question here. On latest (rolling) Deepin.

 

In terminal this works fine (anonymous access is enabled): 

sudo mount -t cifs //<ip to NAS>/Share/ ./mountfolder/

 

But in the file manager I try:

smb://<ip to NAS>/Share

 

And just get a popup sating something like "Mounting error". Any ideas?
