i’ve got this small problem in ubuntu linux
since i’m used to keep my project on a fileserver, in a directory shared via samba, i’d like to access the directory from within the blender file requesters, but i can’t
i’ve tried with “smb://…” but no result
anybody can help?
thank you in advance
Just taking some shots in the dark here…
My first thought was that, at least in KDE, addressing a samba share only works with a single slash. That is…
Of course, I don’t know if that’s different in gnome, but I’ll assume you know what you’re doing.
Instead, I wonder if it might be possible to softlink the file you’re after.
ln -s smb:/192.168.blah.blah/sharedfolder/original_file local_file_name
I’ve never tried softlinking something on an smb share, and I have no clue if it’d work, but it sounds like it’s worth a try. Failing that, I’d just copy the file to a local directory. I know that’s not what you’re looking for, but sometimes it’s better to settle for something that works over something ideal.
Best of luck!
You’ll have to mount the samba share at startup.
“mount samba share” google …
So blender will see it in /media or where you told it to mount .
