Please lecture me in Samba.


Hi Everybody.
I am trying to get my SlackWare/Xfce Laptop to open up files from my Ubuntu/KDE desktop

I was able to get samba going through the command line by issuing the command
Code:
$ smbclient  //LocalHost/Downloads
Is there a way I can go to the mounted folder and just right click on a file and select open with vlc?

how can I play the mp3s from the desktop in the laptop?

I will appreciate it.

Thank you!

Yes there is a way, but you will need to mount the share first, with either "smbmount" or "mount -t cifs".
For simplicity you would probably want to add that to fstab too.

What would be the syntax? Because I typed
Code:
 $ smbmount //LocalHost/Downloads
and nothing happened.
then I tried
Code:
$ /sbin/mount.cifs //LocalHost/Downloads
And again nothing happened

Thank you.

if this is not a Microsoft windows host ( and you stated it was a ubuntu host) why use samba ?

use the standard NFS ( network file shares )

To answer your question to me, about the mount syntax, read the manuals, or google.

To answer your question to JohnVV, google.

For information on NFS in Slackware, look at /usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs/NFS-HOWTO and http://rlworkman.net/howtos/NFS_Firewall_HOWTO
