Hi, I'm trying to get Manjaro KDE to talk to other machines on my home network, most importantly my NAS. Unfortunately, the Network tab of Dolphin is empty and the SMB tab only shows my printer and itself.
To get started with Linux, I installed VirtualBox on a Win10 PC and created VMs for Linux Mint Cinnamon and Manjaro KDE. I liked Manjaro KDE much better - it wasn't even close. But I had a terrible time getting any of the vbox additions to work: couldn't share the host shared folders, clipboard, etc. Because of that I hedged and installed both of them on my Windows 7 laptop as dual (triple) boot. That's all fine.
My home network has several PCs and laptops - a mix of Windows 10, Windows 7, MacOS, and a NAS (Drobo FS). They all see each other just fine when I browse the network in their respective file managers. So does the triple-boot laptop, if I boot into Windows 7 or Linux Mint.
When booting into Manjaro KDE, however... I went to Remote/Network/Network and Remote/Network/Shared Folders (SMB), and both were empty. I was able to connect to the NAS directly by specifying the smb:// name, so that was hopeful.
I dug through the following (and more!) as best I could:
At the end of all that... Dolphin's Shared Folders now shows the Manjaro laptop and the networked printer. None of the Windows machines show up (Mac is currently down).
My end goal is to set it up so Manjaro mounts the Drobo shares on startup. But being able to browse the network neighborhood seems like both a pre-requisite for that, and something Manjaro should be able to do out of the box. I went back and verified that the VMs on the Win10 PC behave the same way: LM VM sees everything, Manjaro VM sees nothing except the Manjaro laptop.
Any hints on where to start?
