[SOLVED] Blank content for files in remote samba shares

Hi, in my Debian Stretch 9, in a Thunar window I want to open some files stored in a remote samba shared folder like above:

IbYgOT1.png

for example, if I want to display the content for the file mx-packets.txt the result is:

3E2306I.png

in Linux Mint 18 or 18.1 works well, is Debian missing some packets for extra functionality?
Or must I set something that I don't know?

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] Blank content for files in remote samba shares

Which gvfs packages do you have installed and which versions are they? Also what version of dbus is installed?

Is gvfs-fuse running?

ps -ef | grep fuse

Can you view the contents of the file if you cat it from the command line?

Anything in your xsession log file? I think it's ~/.xsession-errors.

Re: [SOLVED] Blank content for files in remote samba shares

Gvfs packages installed:
gvfs:amd64, gvfs-backends, gvfs-bin, gvfs-common, gvfs-daemons, gvfs-libs:amd64

Package: gvfs
Version: 1.30.4-1

Package: gvfs-backends
Source: gvfs
Version: 1.30.4-1

Package: gvfs-bin
Source: gvfs
Version: 1.30.4-1

Package: gvfs-common
Source: gvfs
Version: 1.30.4-1

Package: gvfs-daemons
Source: gvfs
Version: 1.30.4-1

Package: gvfs-libs
Source: gvfs
Version: 1.30.4-1

Package: fuse
Version: 2.9.7-1

Package: dbus
Version: 1.10.18-1

the result of ps -ef | grep fuse is:
root      1808     1  0 May12 ?        00:00:00 /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmblock-fuse -o subtype=vmware-vmblock,default_permissions,allow_other /var/run/vmblock-fuse
giagio   19912 19624  0 15:48 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --color=auto fuse

fuse is not running?

if I grep .xsession-errors related to fuse there is:
Created symlink /run/systemd/system/run-vmblock\x2dfuse.mount → /dev/null.
Removed /run/systemd/system/run-vmblock\x2dfuse.mount.

The file in the example is not empty, if I cat it in a terminal I can see the content..

Re: [SOLVED] Blank content for files in remote samba shares

In Linux Mint 18 the result for ps -ef | grep fuse is:
root      1610     1  0 16:10 ?        00:00:00 /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmblock-fuse -o subtype=vmware-vmblock,default_permissions,allow_other /var/run/vmblock-fuse
giagio    3121  2889  0 16:19 ?        00:00:00 /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-fuse /run/user/1000/gvfs -f -o big_writes
giagio    4736  4568  0 16:20 pts/6    00:00:00 grep --color=auto fuse

it clear that in Debian isn't running the Fuse daemon for gvfs...
I'm looking in the network how to enable it, because I don't know how... :-(

lightdm   3394  3365  0 18:19 ?        00:00:00 /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-fuse /run/user/111/gvfs -f -o big_writes
giagio    3896  3727  0 18:20 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --color=auto fuse

but problem persists.. :-(

Re: [SOLVED] Blank content for files in remote samba shares

At last, after reboot, now I can view remote file with double click! :-)

Simply was missing gvfs-fuse...
As usual, thanks for your advices!

Re: [SOLVED] Blank content for files in remote samba shares

Glad it worked out. I think you needed to log out and back in again for the fuse filesystem to be initiated properly.
