there is not network browsing per se in antix. however, we have findshares for locating shares and connectshares for mounting them. there is a spot in the antix faq for them.

also, I have a video series on the matter:. the video is from antiX 15 but the info is valid.

hello Dolphin - Oracle

So I saw the video. Thanks. It's difficult for me as I'm french .

1) first method: In the terminal, write the command "findshares"...after what I have to do ?
2) second method : menu/applications/internet/connectshares configuration
"nominate share" ok " save and close" : I didn't understand the second method
3) go to home/dolphin/.conf/connectshares : what I have to change, write ?? I didn't understand
4) menu/applications/ connectshares ???
go to /mnt/name of the pc on the local network/file on this pc : how to mount this pc ?
5) menu/applications/system tools/ rox filer : I didn't understand the followed advice..

So If you can help me

Thanks by advance

Nico

lets' try another method.

edit to /etc/udevil/udevil.conf

look for "allowed filesystems" and add ", cifs" to the line.

then you can use spacefm to mount your shares. use this in the location bar

smb://hostname/sharename

in my screen shot, my server is "mediapc" and my sharename is "media".

hello and thanks for your help

I placed myself in root in the terminal . I had got # and the command nano /etc/udevil/udevil.conf

But I can't save because I think I'm not really root.

How can I do ?

I got nothing. I'm afraid our language barrier may be too high. I do not understand why you cannot edit the /etc/udevil/udevil.conf.

connectshares and spacefm/udevil are the 2 methods I use.


you should be able to do this without editing anything.

as regular user:

sudo mount -t cifs //hostname/sharename /mountpoint

you will need to make the mount point ahead of time (a folder like /media/network)

In case you are "not really root", try again:

sudo nano /etc/udevil/udevil.conf

Are you able to read guides written in English? If yes have a look at
Help-->antiX-->antiX FAQ-->Connectshares.
It might be easier to use than the video because you can read and re-read at a pace that suits you.

After you have given it a try post again and I will try to help sort out problems. Hopefully the guide will enable you to move one-step-at-a-time to success.

One of the benefits of Connectshares is you are not tied to using a single file manager such as SpaceFM. Connectshares works with all file managers and also works with many other apps such as word-processors. A file manager is not needed.

I only speak English, no French at all. If the language barrier is too high, it might be worth you trying to find someone who can speak French and English to help you.
