SOLVED PCManFM - no network access

Post#1 by kocickamia » 18 Sep 2016, 21:02

Hello, i use Porteus LXQt and there is no network (Windows shares) access from default file manager PCManFM. Mount manually with Mount manager works, but - i not want this way. I want normal browse for windows shares. How to do this?

Welcome to this forum kocickamia.

Please have a look here viewtopic.php?f=81&t=6208
And follow the discussion after the following citation:
make sure the OP has samba and it is activated. In all of the latest RC releases networking should work out of the box. My first suggestions is to do a system ninfo sump via porteus-settings and upload it somewhere.

We will be there to help you whatever your linux level of expertise.

1.0 Presence of samba (in my case):

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm -s samba
samba-4.1.0-x86_64-2.txz was found in slackware [installed]
samba-4.2.12-x86_64-1_slack14.1.txz was found in slackwarepatches [upgrade]
Packages found:   2 

Use:   usm -i <package>  for more info
Use:   usm -g <package>  to download

Thanks, francois. Network browsing works after install samba :-)

edit:// yes, network browsing works but files (avi, mp4 etc...) not play direct from shared place. Not in PCmanFM. I was install Thunar and there is no problem.

If it works now, just tell us in detail what you had done. :wink:

OK, i use Porteus LXQt, 32bit version. In basic configuration i open basic file manager PCManFM and click to Network. Does nothing.
Install Samba through USM, activate xzm module, copy it to /mnt/mmcblk0/porteus/modules folder.
Open PCManFM, click to Network, then click to network computer, enter username and password, click to Remember forever. Then click to shared resource on network computer, enter (again!) username/password, click to Remember forever (why?). Click to any movie on shared disk, Smplayer is started but not play.
Next i install Thunar through USM, activate xzm module, copy it to /mnt/mmcblk0/porteus/modules folder.
Open Thunar, click to Network, then click to network computer, enter username and password, click to Remember forever. Shows keyring, enter password for keyring (store passwords?). Then click to shared resource on network computer, enter (again!) username/password, click to Remember forever (why?). Click to any movie on shared disk, Smplayer is started and play.
What's wrong with PCManFM? Why Thunar works and PCManFM not? Why i must enter password again and again? Remember forever means Forget forever?
Computers on network are machines with Windows XP/7/8/10.
