Windows Shares on ACO user systems

Since start of 2021 the correct server is, the older server 04 is now read-only.

how to access a windows share from an aco user system like acc7, acc8, etc.


open the thunar filemanager and enter the url smb:// int the location

User: <your windows user>
Domain: campus
Password: <your windows password>

After that you should be able to see (and umount) the share in your file manager e.g. Thunar.

Here a picture as an example:

gio mount "smb://"

User and Domain can also be specified directly in the mount command, then you will only be asked for your password:

gio mount "smb://campus;<username>"

unmount it from terminal using

gio mount -u "smb://"

filesystem should be accessible from a terminal via /run/user/$(id -u)/gvfs/... and as a fallback ~/.gvfs/...
