Unable to mount share from Elementary OS

Unread post by chris@dubea.org » Sun Aug 12, 2018 6:02 pm


Very neophyte Linux user here, so please use small words :)

I've got Elementary OS (an Ubuntu fork) set up on a Dell laptop mainly for experimentation purposes.

What I'd like to do is use it to evaluate the capabilities of Darktable and determine if it's a suitable replacement for Lightroom.

I can access my Synology DS918+ quite nicely with the file manager, but Darktable cannot see the NAS as I need to physically mount a share, and therein lies the rub.

I've gone through the steps shown on this page :https://www.synology.com/en-us/knowledg ... etwork_NFS

When I enter the mount command, I'm asked for the password to root@//XXXX/photo/:
Entering in the admin password I'm told "mount error(95): Operation not supported"

how do you NFS settings look like (from the DSM side)? If you can access your NAS via SSH then you can also paste etc/exports file content. It could be that you have problems with a insecure_locks parameter
