I have just installed PCLinuxOS, and am impressed with the Control Centre which allows much better control of the system than other distros I have tried.
However I am struggling with Netowrk shares.
After trying what seemed obvious to me, and failing
, I followed the instructions given in :- http://pclosmag.com/html/Issues/200909/page05.html
(More or less followed, since the Control Centre layout seems to have changed a bit since that was written.)
This has allowed me to 'see' my PCLinuxOS machine (called Garage), on other (Linux) machines on my Network. I can created files remotely and was feeling very happy
However, if I try to browse other network drives on Garage (PcManFM --> Go --> Network Drives, I can see the other machines (I also see Garage TWICE). But if I click on one of them I get the error
"The specified location is not mounted"
I also went to control Centre and went to
"Access Windows (SMB) shared drives and directories"
Here I defined a mount point for one of my computers (l1210 Desktop).
This tells me that it has created a mount point at /mnt/Desktop
Although I would want to be able to get to this via Go --> Network, I cannot browse it at /mnt/Desktop either. I can see the Directory, but I cannot see any contents.
Have I missed something somewhere?
I've browsed the forum, but although several people have had similar issues, no answers jump out at me. Anyone able to advise?
From what I have seen so far PCLinuxOS looks like a distro I would like to standardise on, but getting shares to show up is pretty important
