Thread: smb4k no longer works

    Default smb4k no longer works

    Hi!

    Until recently smb4k on an up-to-date TW installation from repo https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...SE_Tumbleweed/ used to work: start the software, get the smb4k window, sync files.

    Now, if I start smb4k, either by clicking on it or starting in a terminal, I can see the software in top, but no window, no comment in the terminal.

    It doesn't work in KDE Plasma.

    To get my files synced, I logged out and startet IceWM, there everything works as expected. So something in KDE Plasma is an error.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you!

    Regards
    Alexander

    Default Re: smb4k no longer works

    I use smb4k and it does start just fine on my TW/KDE Plasma system, there are some issues with it in that network neighbourhood does not work but that has been the case for some time. My smb4k is 3.0.6. I can mount my windows 7 system but not my NAS using smb4k because the NAS runs V1 and Linux now only supports V2 up. I am able to unmount anything with smb4k even my NAS after being mounted manually.

    Are you sure that it's not just minimized to the system tray?

    There was a bug that it didn't reliably remember the state on exit, but that was fixed in the last update.

    You made my day, thank you!

    You are right: The symbol isn't even shown in the system tray, but in the line of »hidden« symbols and only visible, if you click on the black triangle.

    I'm very relieved. I need smb4k and synkron to sync about 50 folders from different places on a server with my notebook. Without smb4k I had to set up unison or some alternative solution, always a difficult thing, because the server runs microsoft.

    Linux does still support V1, but it's disabled by default.

    It might help to set "client max protocol = NT1" in smb.conf as explained in https://sourceforge.net/p/smb4k/blog...-300-released/ .
    For mounting (which uses the kernel module that needs to be passed an additional parameter to allow v1 in current kernels), there are corresponding options in smb4k's settings.

    I can browse and mount the shares on my router (which only supports SMBv1) just fine using smb4k, after adjusting smb4k's settings (i.e. ticking "SMB protocol version" in Mount->Advanced Mount Settings, and switching the protocol version to 1.0), even without changing smb.conf.

    I'm on Leap 15.1 though, not Tumbleweed.
    (but I do have samba > 4.7, 4.9.5+git.317.6d82fb3918b to be exact)
