(Ascii, XFCE) Easy Samba Share to Raspberry, how?

Hello ,

i tried to update the Libreelec on my Raspberry Pi2 by putting a file into a folder on the SDcard connected to the Raspberry.
It is recommended to be done via Samba Share, as described here

https://libreelec.wiki/accessing_libree … __sambasmb


For using the SMB shares under Ubuntu, just open a file browser on your machine, double click at the address bar and enter the following:

smb://enter_ip_address_here/



I tried this with XFCE, but it would not allow me to do it.
Then browsed quickly, and somewhere it stated that there is needed an plugin for Thunar, probably Thunar-samba-shares or thunar-samba-plugin,

but it did not find such a plugin.

Is there a way to conveniently activate this samba share on XFCE without too much configuration?

On Windows it was pretty straightforward : just typing the adress in the Windows Explorer AdressBar, and the two (PC and Raspbi) get connected.

oh , silly me, this was solved , i just had forgotten to click on "Network" in Thunar, and then the Librelec Samba Share would become visible.
