Using Byzantium on the Librem 5, and using the stock Files app, I’m trying to mount a remote drive to a directory on the L5. But, it won’t work.
I’ve attached three pics numbered 1, 2, and 3.
Picture 1 shows the error I get when I enter smb://192.168.1.1 in the “connect” field at the bottom of the Files window. The error is, “Unable to access location / Failed to retrieve share list from the server: Software caused connection abort”
Pictrue 2 shows the error I get when I instead tap on the location listed within the network (“rt-ac87r-8b48”): “Unable to access location / Retrying with upper case share name. mount error(6): No such device or address. Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs) and kernel log messages (dmesg).”
Picture 3 shows the error I get when I instead tap on the “Windows Network”: It shows “Folder is Empty”.
What is strange is that on the same home network, two other Linux computers (Ubuntu) and all android devices, and an Ubuntu Touch tablet all “see” and mount this drive just fine. For example, on the two ubuntu desktop computers, in Nautilus, when I enter smb://192.168.1.1 in the “connect” field at the bottom of the Nautilus window, it mounts perfectly. And, when I click on the Windows Network, it shows all the devices on the network (instead of an empty folder).
I can’t figure out why this won’t work on the L5.
