access network share through LMCE KDE desktop
« on: March 21, 2011, 06:05:48 am »
This might sound like a dumb question, but is it possible to access the network share through KDE desktop? I have an NTFS HDD that I am trying to get some files copied into the LMCE managed drive. Trying to copy them directly isn't allowed, and I was able to copy the files easily from another PC on the network, but this particular partition I have is the actual same drive that I have LMCE on, meaning I can't remove it and transfer the files from another PC.

Any ideas? Am i missing something?

Hi,

I'm not quite as familiar yet with 810 kubuntu but with ubuntu 1004 the partition is usually picked up as a separate file system.

You may have to:
Code: [Select]
cd /mnt
sudo mkdir XXXX
Whatever you want to call the directory
Code: [Select]
sudo mount -t NTFS /dev/sdXY mnt/XXXX
sdXY is the drive letter and the partition number, eg sda5

I believe you have to have NTFS-3g which is installed by default on ubuntu 1004 but not sure about the 810.

yea, but last time I tried to copy files that way and then tried to resyncronize them via the web admin, the whole install went screwy.

How far do you get? Can you mount the partition? Can you cd into it? Can you see the files? What happens when you cp?
I did have quite some problems with an extended NTFS partition which I solved with a raw disk editor tool, not for the faint at heart... It involved changing the partition type to a basic NTFS type.

I ended up just wiping the entire thing. I got fed up after about 2.5hrs. Right now I am debating building a new core or building a new core from parts I have to ressurrect the dead. More info on that is here. http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=11568.0
