New to EndeavourOS, and have a query.
Has anyone successfully added a WD Mycloud device into the file manager as a mapped drive?
Currently using XFCE desktop, so Thunar, but would happily install something else if required.
Only things I have found give a method with windows, and I’ve used it on a windows box (but no more)
I can access via a web browser, but would prefer to get to it via a file manager
Any suggestions gratefully received.
I have not yet set up my WD with EOS, but https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/samba#Automatic_mounting should be a good starting point.
Just make sure you activate Samba access in the WD Mycloud root interface (i.e. through the web browser interface).
I have mine mapped, I use a script:
while ! ping -c 1 -W 1 www.google.com; do
echo "Waiting for network....."
echo `date` >> mwd.log
sudo mount -t cifs -o rw,guest,vers=3.0,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 //192.168.x.xx/<wduser1> /media/<mntpoint>/
<Rest of script....>
Replace IP, mntpoint and wduser1 with the appropriate values.
Edit due to a mistake!!
I have have one my cloud device on my network and I mount it like this using fstab
//184.108.40.206/Public /mnt/honeyspot cifs uid=<myusername>,credentials=/home/<myusername>/credentials/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,uid=1000,gid=1000,noperm,rw,vers=3.0,noauto,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.after=network-online.target 0 0
credential part points the text file that has username and password required to my drive
