I am trying to get gnome inter-computer file sharing facility to work, but I am getting very odd results:
I have set the public directory share properties. The directory can be seen and data moved to and from it across the local area network, but unlike all my fedora machines, the directory still has a big blue sign across the top telling me to set the share options on the folder. This normally disappears once, the setting have been set.
On the gnome setting panel for sharing, there should be for options: Personal File sharing, Screen sharing, media sharing, remote login. On antergos, Media and Screen sharing are missing. Media sharing is the option everyone else is using.
Whilst others can interact with my public directory, I am unable to access anyone else’s public directory even though they appear in the ‘other locations’ of the file manager. Selecting these leads to ‘error resolving [xxxxxxxxxx]. Name or service not known’.
I have never had a problem with these facilities before. Everything just worked. Presumably there is something different about the default set up for sharing on antergos from fedora, but I don’t know where to start looking.
Any help appreciated.
