I’ve been a lifelong MacOS user, but have decided to make the move to UbuntuBudgie. I thought my first adventure into the new would be moving a media server from Mac to Budgie. anyways… programs installed, when I access them via the browser and try to point to a media folder which is on a network drive.
1st try - I mount the SMB share via network (using smb creds) it’s on the desktop but am unable to access it while trying to add media folder via browser - in macOS I’d just navigate to /Volumes/SMBshare
2nd try - I did the following:
- installed CIFS utils w/ sudo apt-get cifs_utils
- created a mount point w/ sudo mkdir /media/macmini_raid
- created a credentials file in ~/.smbcreds…
- then mounted with :
- sudo mount -t cifs -o rw,vers=3.0,credentials=root./smbcredentials //serverIP/sharename /media/macmini_raid
i’ve also modified my etc/fstab. everything mounts, it’s just read only. So I can access it but the program won’t add it since it needs r/w ability
here’s what I added to fstab
//192.168.254.161/macmini\ raid/ /media/macmini_raid cifs vers=3.0,credentials=/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,gid=1000,uid=1000,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=077 0 0
If I open files, navigate to /media/macmini_raid and open as root I have r/w permission but obviously that doesn’t do the trick.
I googled, and found about 12 different slightly different ways to do this. I’ve tried them all and have had no success. So here I am.
Thanks in advance.
