(Chimaera) Accessing NAS - XFCE not responding

Hello,

i have bought a new NAS and am exploring ways of using it reasonably,

trying to access it from another computer running Devuan Chimaera 4.0,

however, no luck, to access shared folders from XFCE File Manager.

Neither "Browse Network" nor "Open Location" (CTRL+L) seems to function;

have manually installed samba and smbclient; hope this did not mess somthing up.

Thanks

So do i, but i just use

smb://<NAS IP>

then enter a share and bookmark it in Thunar.

Make sure you have gvfs-backends installed. I don't know if it's installed by default in Chimaera (or run XFCE myself), but the lack of this package has caused numerous threads like this one in the past.


Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action. Four times is Official GNOME Policy.

thanks, it seems to function now, have installed "gvfs*" all inclusive, now it would show NAS as "timemachine" and "timemaschine (smb)" or so.

another thing, on ubuntu i noticed i can click on a folder and create a samba share for other computers to access to;

how could achieve a similar thing in devuan/xfce, it seems not easily doable with rightclick only.

Instead of using Samba, can the NAS be connected via nfs? This is native Linux, and not a diversion via a Windows related feature.

yes, the NFS is enabled, i do use it only for mediasharing; but folder sharing is most easy on mac, although it does also not always function outside of mac userland;
at the moment, i can access all the shares from my linux boxes (have ubuntu and devuan as main Linux), but have still to find out how to share my files from Devuan Linux (XFCE) onto Windows  orso.
