Deepin SHARED FOLDERS

Currently, computer equipment is part of our daily life and it is common to have more than one PC in our home or workplace, even if they run various operating systems; We could also include in this category mobile devices such as Tablets and Smartphones.

In this scenario it is quite feasible that is intended to wirelessly share resources between them in order to access data or files hosted on other devices physically. In this tutorial we will address this issue once known how it works, And we will try to apply solutions to Deepin.

Share folders between Deepin teams

Nothing more simple, since the system is pre-configured to interact with a pair, using the Samba protocol preinstalled on; Simply clicking the right mouse button on the folder and open the property sheet for sharing and can view and operate it from another computer with Deepin.

We will only limit that the predefined name and used for the network where we will operate, is the same as in windows » WORKGROUP »Which means that any computer under this domain and connected to the same router should be automatically detected. If you want to change the name of the workgroup, open the terminal with sudo Deepin-editor /etc/samba/smb.conf and in "Global Settings" you will find the line that references it (workgroup = WORKGROUP) edit it by changing what is in capital letters, save and restart the system.

Note: Deepin-editor is the text editor.

Share folders between Windows and Deepin

The procedure of sharing a folder in windows is more than known but here we will find another problem, since a while ago Samba changed its protocol to work with Windows 10 and that can prevent you from seeing your Windows network in many GNU / Linux distributions ; in deepin you will surely see a message similar to this.

To fix the problem, we edit with sudo deepin-editor /etc/samba/smb.confand we add the following line in the section «Global Settings» max client protocol = NT1 Also if you want to share folders that are on external drives or ntfs you will have to add another line so that these can be opened from Windows or Android force user = your usernamenow save and restart the system or run sudo restart /etc/init.d/samba

As the image reflects, we now see, the teams in our LAN wifi and within them the shared folders; without having to resort to tricks like defining IPs in Samba or routes in fstab.

Share folders between Android and Deepin

For the case there are different alternatives in particular I use the method explained in the Connect KDE Tutorial since it provides other functions but since the theme is sharing folders, let's get busy.

First we must create a Samba server on Android; for this we will install Lan Drive from Playstore. It has a very simple interface that will facilitate the task; In the section Users, you can create them and define passwords or use the option Anonymous. In sharedYou can add folders, in addition to which the application is defined by default.

Finally you will be able to start the server from Startto enable deepin to discover the shared folders on your Android.

Note: We have not referred to MAC or Iphone environments since in my case I do not have any Apple device but we will surely add it later.

Very good, a while ago I had that problem and I did not know how to solve it because the users in windows did not see my shared folder from deepin because it was on an ntfs disk, thanks for sharing that knowledge

deepin-editor may not be installed, try nano. Instead of writing deepin-editor write nano, when you make the change to save and exit, press control key + letter «O» followed by enter key and finally control key + Letter «x». You can also check if deepin editor is installed.

Thanks, if that was it, I don't know why but I don't have a deepin editor, using nano it worked for me.

Excellent car.

I have not tried it. In my case I have with fstab.

A particular case is when you have a shared folder on windows and within an image which you want your equipment Deepin show that image as wallpaper. Deepin in particular is not like other distros upgrading to the time change.

Any comments?

It doesn't work for me either, I have a desktop and a lap with deepin 15.10.1 and they don't "see" each other, even though both are connected by wifi to the same network, I followed the instructions for windows but not like that: '(

Very good Community. A great greeting. I'm new around here. I have been using Deepin for about a year on a Lap i7, 1070 sli, 4k, dual boot with win 10 and the proprietary Nvidia 430.14 driver. I have it connected to my local network at home through an asus router with the firewall disabled, when I boot the machine with windows I can see the other computers on the network, but not with deepin. I have done the steps of this tutorial, and that of many others on the internet, but I have not had satisfactory results. I cannot see the other PCs nor they can see me when I use Deepin. Could you help me??? Deepin 15.10.1 installed with ISO 15.10. and updated. Thank you very much.

Hello!
I had the same problem accessing shared folders, the solution I found was the following:
1) Open the smb.conf from terminal (sudo Deepin-editor /etc/samba/smb.conf)
2) Replace in smb.conf:
max client protocol = NT1
by
max client protocol = SMB3_11
3) Save and restart the service with: sudo service smbd restart

The information is in Samba.org

Should seek paragraph max client protocol (G) and read the use and differences in the versions of SMB protocol.

NOTE: The problem is caused by the updating of the SMB protocol, the default configuration of the smb.conf is not compatible with Windows 10.

Hi everybody how are you
..I have a question I hope you can help me.
What happens is that I have two systems installed on my computer (Deepin and Windows), I create a partition where I host all the files to be able to share it between the different operating systems, but when I want to modify those files from Deepin, it doesn't let me; it tells me that I do not have permissions to modify or delete or anything, and all folders and files have a lock, so I suppose it was a question of permissions, so I gave it permissions from super su and it has all (read-write) and even after that is still with a padlock I can not create folders or modify anything (It is as if the partition was locked and I do not know) .. how can I remove the locks?

I hope you can help me solve it, thank you very much

Hello, this question should not be asked in this article, because the question is not on the same topic as the article. It is better for the community and for you if the question is on the same topic as the article or on the forum. First, because the people in the discussion are more likely to know the problem, and second, because maintaining order helps another person with the same problem to find information and a solution to the same problem in the future, thus helping each other.

The cause of the problem is Windows, which has left the partition locked, almost always the solution is to disable the fast startup of Windows, if you do not have to force the mount of the NTFS partition with the remove_hiberfile parameter, the command is as follows

sudo mount -o remove_hiberfile NTFS_partition mount_folder

You can also seek help in the telegram group - https://t.me/deepinenespanol

Greetings.
