Can't update music library

I tried again and got a different output

graeme@Linux1 ~ $ graeme@Linux1 ~ $ sudo mount -t cifs -o guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8  //192.168.2.100/movies /mnt/movies
graeme@Linux1: command not found
graeme@Linux1 ~ $ graeme@Linux1 ~ $ 
graeme@Linux1: command not found
graeme@Linux1 ~ $ 
graeme@Linux1 ~ $ 

Hmm … now navigate to /mnt/movies

anything there?

Yep that works :slight_smile:

well that’s f*cking weird … as that does the same as the line in fstab ???

can you post the contents of your fstab

/etc/fstab: static file system information.

Use ‘blkid’ to print the universally unique identifier for a

device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices

that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

/ was on /dev/sdb5 during installation

UUID=15ba193d-715f-4c4a-a063-bce2fdd8248c / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1

swap was on /dev/sdb6 during installation

UUID=5403cd2d-4c36-4e3c-b52e-ebf8190dd3d6 none swap sw 0 0
//192.168.2.100/multimedia /mnt/multimedia cifs guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8 0 0
#//192.168.2.100/movies /mnt/movies cifs guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8 0 0

well that's f*cking weird .. as that does the same as the line in fstab

Just about anything I try do do on a PC turns out weird, honestly I swear i have the touch of death with computers :slight_smile:

OK, run:

sudo umount /mnt/movies

now navigate to /mnt/movies

is it empty ?

empty :frowning:

OK, uncomment that last line in fstab … SAVE. it.

then run:

sudo mount -a

anything returned ?

graeme@Linux1 ~ $ sudo mount -a
graeme@Linux1 ~ $

did you save fstab ?

if so … now try navigating to /mnt/movies

anything there ?

I’m sure I saved the file but I just saved again and the contents are now there

sorry :-[

Next one “graeme”

Create a mountpoint:

sudo mkdir /mnt/graeme

now open fstab for editing

sudo gedit /etc/fstab

add a SINGLE NEW LINE at the bottom that reads:

//192.168.2.100/graeme  /mnt/graeme  cifs  guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8  0  0

SAVE fstab

Back in the terminal run:

sudo mount -a

any errors, STOP, and tell me what … if nothing is returned …

Now try opening that mountpoint:

pcmanfm /mnt/graeme

are the contents visible?

if so, can you write to the share … try creating a file or directory.

ok that works perfect :slight_smile:

Next one “pat”

Create a mountpoint:

sudo mkdir /mnt/pat

now open fstab for editing

sudo gedit /etc/fstab

SAVE fstab

Back in the terminal run:

sudo mount -a

any errors, STOP, and tell me what … if nothing is returned …

Now try opening that mountpoint:

pcmanfm /mnt/pat

are the contents visible?

if so, can you write to the share … try creating a file or directory.
