      I’m sorry that a few of the translations, particularly the Portuguese translations, did not make it correctly into our new release, especially after all the great work all of our translators performed.

      I am confident that when the translations are correctly re-established in their appropriate locations the packages that provide localization should then be available.

      I’m on my recently installed instance of antiX 23.1 Full runit, which was simply a replacement of the pre-release version; for me there was no visible difference between the two, and both have been excellent. Moreover, I found that the packages that “differentiate” Version 23 versus Version 23.1 are also available, and my antiX 23 Full runit is also excellent!

          but I can’t find a button to Create a samba share.

          Please see. The button is labeled “Add share”, right next to “Delete share”:

          »Manage Samba Shares« view of antiX Samba manager

          These buttons live in “User shares” view of antiX Samba Manager, which will come up when pressing the “Manage SAMBA shares” button in the “Mount manager” view (Mount manager view is what you get right after startup from within antiXcc.)

            @Robin – what is a doublette?

            Searching for doublettes in directory ‘./${fm_file##*/}’\nand its subdirectories:

              Hmmm… I’m baffled. I was perfectly sure this word exists also in English language. Will look up. “Doubletten” are entities of some kind, existing more than once, as a precise 1:1 copy. In French, where the expression originates, it spells “Doublones”, if I recollect properly. Maybe I was wrong, and the English language doesn’t know this word? Will have to look it up in my good old oxford advanced learners dictionary :)

                Perhaps you mean ‘duplicate’?

                  Please, update to latest version as of yesterday from my repos. The first stable version of antiX Samba manager didn’t make it into the ISOs unfortunately.

                  I did update antiX, using the default repository. It updated antiX Samba manager to version 2…

                  I have right now counterchecked: The file is present in German language LC_MESSAGES folder, but NOT in Portuguese…

                  Thanks for checking and finding out what went wrong. Often things go wrong, no matter how hard we try to make them right (I can attest to that, in real life). But it’s always sad, seeing localizations going a bit back. It’s nothing that users can’t fix with a bit of work (no terminal needed, and I provided step by step instructions in my previous post).

                  These buttons live in “User shares” view of antiX Samba Manager, which will come up when pressing the “Manage SAMBA shares” button in the “Mount manager” view (Mount manager view is what you get right after startup from within antiXcc.)

                  Thanks, I’ll have to take a closer look, when I try 23.1 Live again!

                  On “Doblette” – I did not even check if the word existed in English- since Robin told us exactly that that entry did, I just translated that entry as something like “search for duplicates”. In pt, “Doblete” is sometimes used when a soccer player scores two goals on the same game, so I got what the word meant. But, yes, I failed to find it anywhere on English dictionaries. Not being a native speaker, I just assumed it was some strange little used word, like “antics” :-)

                  P.

                    Perhaps you mean ‘duplicate’?

                    Possibly, yes. But “Duplikat” doesn’t sound right for me. I mean “Doubletten”, not “Duplikate”. Obviously I should rather return to writing the translatable text strings in my native language into my scripts and let a master translation be done by an English native speaker (can be done at transifex, before other languages start to translate). Writing directly in English language is a bit error prone and time consuming for me; have tried it anyway in this script set. I guess you will spot lots of irregular expressions…

                    Please head over to transifex and fix what you notice as inadequate in the en_GB translation, then it can be fixed fast and easily by a package update, incorporating the en_GB .mo file into the en locale LC_MESSAGES folder. This method avoids the complicated and error prone process of exchanging strings within the script code itself and re-building the merged resource .pot file from it, which takes hours to have it error free.

                      No, you need to update the very file directly from my git, to get the fix. I guess ver 0.88 isn’t still in the packaged versions.
                      Please check version number of antiX-setup-samba-shares script file. You know how to do.

                        I know only a couple of German words, but English… Please search, in DuckDuckGo (or any other search engine): “search for duplicate files”
                        I’ll see that, in fact, “duplicate files” or “duplicated files” is the exact English expression for what you mean.

                            Many thanks! Now you just have to make sure to put the resulting en_GB .mo file, even when it contains merely some few entries which were in need to be fixed, and hence doesn’t met the minimum percentage criteria of other languages, into the packages, as a resource of en rather than merely en_GB.

                              antiX Samba Manager handles SMB 1.0 devices properly now, I had switched for testing my SMB server to accept SMB v1.0 protocol connections again. If you like, we can do some testing together over in the samba-manager thread, since we’ll have to find out still why it can’t see your specific device. I reckon it relies on NetBIOS, which is actually not supported by now, but it might have another reason as well.

                              @Robin:
                              I can confirm that SMB-Manager is able to see SMB 1.0 devices and successfully attach SMB 1.0 share, after the following changes:
                              – After enabling SMB 1.0 protocol in /etc/samba SMB-Manager was able to see SMB 1.0 devices
                              – Attaching shares residing on SMB 1.0 devices was failing with error ‘Cannot proceed. Needed /media/demo… mountpoint… could not create’ – something like this. Such mountpoint was successfully created when attaching shares residing on SMB 2.0 devices.
                              This failure is remedied by creating a separate folder for mountpoint and specifying such custom mountpoint in the process of mounting remote share residing on SMB 1.0 device.
                              So specifically:
                              – Create a folder, such as B in user’s Home folder
                              – In the process of mounting a share residing on SMB 1.0 device, specify the custom mountpoint B in the user’s Home folder. Upon execution it successfully mounts such share residing on the SMB 1.0 device in B folder.

                              So I want to thank you for pursuing this project as it is a great asset to antiX. Although tthere are several existing ways to mount SMB shares in antiX, this SMB Manager is doing this in flexible and dynamic way, which none other method does, allowing to attach shares ad hoc.

                              Having this opportunity I would like to mention several (bugs?) issues with the SMB Manager gui in CC, which may be in need of addressing (I would say polishing):
                              – On client side, attaching an share residing on a remote SMB server it is currently requiring a sudo password. It should not. Any user should be able to attach a share residing on a remote SMB server if he is authorized, according to security entitlements defined for the user on the SMB server.
                              – After attempt of mounting a share (The button ‘Mount another share’), whether successful or not it does not let you mount another share or even list available shares. That window just flashes and does not do anything.
                              – Pressing ‘Manage Samba Shares’ button results in a box ‘Samba server not found, Please install Samba packages first’ with options Install or ‘No Thanks’.
                              Just want to mention that there is no reason to install Samba Server on client antiX. Samba server typically resides on NAS boxes, to which client needs just to access for shares.
                              Now, if ‘No Thanks’ button is pressed then a box pops up with ‘Install-Error’ ‘Samba not installed’, Can’t proceed…

                              I am not sure what the purpose of ‘Manage Samba shares’ button is meant to be on client side, but I assume it is when someone intends to install an SMB server on antiX and this would be to manage such server. If this is the case should not managing a server be separate function from client gui intended to connect to a remote server?
                              I am fine one way or another, as @Robin probably wants to consolidate both client and possibly server function in one gui…

                              To end my lengthy post I want to thank @Robin (and @PPC) for pursuing this project…
                              It works already, including connecting to SMB 1.0 devices, and minor gui imperfections can be polished in the course of time…
                              Greatly appreciated…

                                @anticapitalista – if it’s possible to include the missing zzzfm related localization files in the relevant package, solving it’s localization problems would be a bit easier for the average user. It’s far from critical, but it would be nice, when you have the time.

                                  I am not sure what the purpose of ‘Manage Samba shares’ button is meant to be on client side,…

                                  Your presumption about that is partly right already.

                                  The manager is designed and ordered strictly hierarchically.

                                  If you read its tooltip as present in antiXcc, you’ll see that the samba manager is meant to provide both, access to remote shares living on machines with other OS’, and giving remote access for machines with other OS’ to local folders on the PC.

                                  First screen coming up deals with mounting and unmounting remote shares. This is what most users need immediately:
                                  It allows to mount and unmount shares provided by a remote machine in your LAN:

                                  Remote mounts management

                                  Pressing the “manage samba shares” button (please note, it comes with a tooltip explaining what it is good for!) brings you to the second level: Manage user shares. This screen manages to give access to a local folder or twig of folder tree (or even the complete tree of a file system, but this is not recommended) to machines running other OS’ in your LAN. Here you will find the “add share” and “remove share” button to manage these user shares tasks:

                                  User shares management

                                  And from within this screen there is a third level screen available: System shares. Press “Show system shares” button to access it. This screen deals with the management of default samba shares, expected by Windows systems to be present. Most users will never have to change something in here. But it allows you to edit the smb.conf file, and provides direct access to information about the proper setup within this file:

                                  System shares management

                                  Fourth level is the shared printer management screen, coming up when pressing the button “Show printers”. It reveals what printers of your system are currently shared, and allows to enable or disable the printer sharing functionality:

                                  Shared printers management

                                  The back button always brings you back to next lower level. You may exit directly from any level by using the X in window border.

                                  As an additional marker to know in what level you currently are, the icon changes its color. Green for remote mount operations, blue for local sharing, grey for system level management, brown for printer sharing. Red stands always for setup or installing something.

                                  Hope this will help to understand the structure this tool follows, and the workflow it observes.

                                  Best advice I can give you: Carefully read the tooltips available on all buttons. These are meant as a kind of manual or short reference, guiding you through all tasks.

                                  Windows is like a submarine. Open a window and serious problems will start.
