Thread: Dolphin does not show shared folder

  1. #1

    Default Dolphin does not show shared folder

    Hi, this is my first post to this forum, so I hope it helps.

    The problem: I can mount a windows folder to my virtual machine, but Dolphin doesn't show it.
    Here is the script that I use to mount the folder ('boffinshare' is the windows share folder, and 'share' is the linux folder):

    #! /bin/bash
    clear
    sudo mount.cifs -o username=boffin5,uid=boffin5,gid=users //192.168.0.11/boffinshare /home/boffin5/share
    echo 'fileshare mounted'

    It shows up when I enter df -h:

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    devtmpfs 4.0M 0 4.0M 0% /dev
    tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev/shm
    tmpfs 1.6G 9.9M 1.6G 1% /run
    tmpfs 4.0M 0 4.0M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
    /dev/sda2 38G 15G 23G 40% /

    /dev/sda2 38G 15G 23G 40% /boot/grub2/x86_64-efi
    /dev/sda2 38G 15G 23G 40% /home

    /dev/sda2 38G 15G 23G 40% /srv
    /dev/sda2 38G 15G 23G 40% /tmp
    /dev/sda2 38G 15G 23G 40% /usr/local
    /dev/sda2 38G 15G 23G 40% /var
    tmpfs 788M 92K 788M 1% /run/user/1000
    //192.168.0.11/boffinshare 231G 184G 47G 80% /home/boffin5/share

    And I get a response from a ping command:
    boffin5@localhost:~> ping 192.168.0.11
    PING 192.168.0.11 (192.168.0.11) 56(84) bytes of data.
    --- 192.168.0.11 ping statistics ---
    11 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 10224ms

    But when I go to Dolphin and pick 'network', it says "no shared folders found"

    This actually worked properly yesterday, but when I came back today, there was this problem.
    What is going on here? Hoping for help ...

    Default AW: Dolphin does not show shared folder

    boffin5@localhost:~> ping 192.168.0.11
    PING 192.168.0.11 (192.168.0.11) 56(84) bytes of data.

    Is it the right IP or has something changed?

    //192.168.0.11/boffinshare 231G 184G 47G 80% /home/boffin5/share
    Why do you go to network? You have it at /home/boffin5/share.
