Hardware / How to Decide Wireless Keyboard and Mouse for PM
« on: April 16, 2019, 12:52:19 am »
Hi,

I'm looking for compact Wireless keyboard and mouse for PM8. If I go for online stores in India there is very few vendor mentioned it is compatible with Linux. There is any way to find which product and model compatible with Linux.What should I consider to buy wireless keyboard and mouse for Linux.

How could we select different layout and model in PM OS.

I had short listed one Logitech K400 Plus Wireless Keyboard. How can I find out it is compatible with PM.

https://www.amazon.in/Logitech-K400-Wireless-Keyboard-Black/dp/B014EUQOGK?SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duc11-21&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B014EUQOGK

Please advice.

Regards,

Rajeev Gautam

Those people who want to implement samba they should also need to know the concept of how umask and permission work in Linux.Peppermint has default umask is  0002 or symbolic u=rwx g=rwx o=rx .Umask 0002 is perfect if you use groups for permission and few distro use default 0022 umask. as well.

Thanks PCNetSpec and TonyBronze for your input and suggestion.

I got some success and able to share folders between Linux as well as Win10.

I had made some tweaks in samba server smb.conf. Which is as below:-

Code: [Select]
#Win Server
os level = 99
wins support = yes
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes

#netbios name and name resolve order
netbios name = PM9
name resolve order = bcast wins lmhosts host

#SMB Version configuration
client min protocol = NT1
client max protocol = SMB3

[ShareName]
   comment = Share Folder Details
   path = /home/administrator/ShareName
   browseable = yes
   read only = no
   guest ok = no
   valid users = @groupname 

Note:- Disable firewell on both side or allow all ports  port 137, port 138, port 139, port 445

Linux Client side smb.conf file some tweaks as below:-

Code: [Select]
netbios name = PM8	
name resolve order = bcast wins lmhosts host
win server = IP of Win Server

In Windows 10  I had changed TCP/IP setting for Win Server IP  and enable network discover option.

I also sharing some web link for further knowledge.

Which Linux distro/version are we talking about ?

I take it they're all part of the same workgroup ?

And are they actually sharing anything ?

It is PM8 and PM9 Distro and it is part of the same workgroup. PM9 is my samba server. I had not shared anything right now because I want to clear connectivity part first. 

After making some changes I start showing computer in PM8 (nemo-->Network-->Windows Network--> Workgroup-->list of computer).

1. Disable firewall in PM8 and PM9. (It start automatically after some time I don't know the reason.)
2. change smb.conf in PM8:- netbios name = PM8   and name resolve order = bcast wins lmhosts host
3. I make same changes in PM9 :-netbios name = PM9   and name resolve order = bcast wins lmhosts host

PM9 is  my samba server and it still not showing anything in (nemo-->Network-->Windows Network)

1. I'm using PM6/PM9/Win10 for test purpose. I'm able to ping these computer IP but I'm not able to find these computers in my File Manager-->Networks and Network Option in Win 10. I had tried given below option but still stuck.

1.1   name resolve order = bcast host
1.2  win support = yes
1.3  Enable Network discovery in Win10

After Making samba server as win server all the Linux computer start showing in Win 10 Network.

Samba as a WINS server in a Windows Peer Network

https://whereofwecannotspeak.wordpress.com/2007/10/24/samba-as-a-wins-server-in-a-windows-peer-network/

Code: [Select]
Configuring Samba to act as a WINS server is really easy. Just add the following parameters to your smb.conf file:

os level = 99
wins support = yes
name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes

Still struggling to get Linux and windows computer show in Linux Network option. But I'm able to ping  IP as well as hostname.local between two linux computer.

Mapping the drives just once should be easy enough .. just give the server a static IP, then on the clients map by IP rather than hostname.

Access by group .. see the
valid users = @editorial
line here:
https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-set-up-samba-shares-for-groups/

Thanks PCNetSpec for give awareness for valid user option.

I'm still stuck with basic and essential  issues which is as below:-

1. I'm using PM6/PM9/Win10 for test purpose. I'm able to ping these computer IP but I'm not able to find these computers in my File Manager-->Networks and Network Option in Win 10. I had tried given below option but still stuck.

1.1   name resolve order = bcast host
1.2  win support = yes
1.3  Enable Network discovery in Win10

2. I'm able to map drive in Win10 but I'm not able to access due to permission or sometime samba is available but it is not connect. I googled and found it can be due to SMB Version issues.Details of OS and their SMB version which able to found as below.

1. XP:-SMBv1/Win7:-SMBv2/Vista:-SMBv2/WinServer2008:-SMBv2/Win8:-SMBv3/Win10vSMBv3/WinServer2012vSMB3
2. PM6 (14.04):-SMBv?/PM8 (16.04):-SMBv?/PM9 (18.04):-SMBv?
 
If I had put min protocol = SMB2 then PM6 stop mapping drive and win 10 same issue able to map but not able to access. I had also tired given below option in smb.conf

server min protocol = SMB2_10
client max protocol = SMB3
client min protocol = SMB2_10

But I'm facing the same issues.

3. I'm still confused how to handle permission to specific group & user after creating folder,sub folder file into share folder. if we create folder or file in samba share it take default linux permission.

I was assuming samba easy to configure as I saw on lot of YouTube video and articles. But there is lot of issues which need to figure out and lot off testing require. Well see where I can reach in this.

I request you please share information and suggestion to overcome from above issues.

Rajeev Gautam

Doesn't the samba server configuration tool allow you to do this ?

Menu > Settings > Samba

Or in the Peppermint Settings Panel as:-

Network > Samba Shares

Thanks PCNetSpec for your prompt reply. I go through this tool. It is good for simple sharing user wise and Individual folder sharing and Individual mapping on client side. My  Scenarios  is little bit complex to handle with it.I'm looking for group wise security and I want to map drive only once ex. smb://smbserver/user for all the user.

Maybe an idea to install webmin to provide a GUI http://www.webmin.com/
Samba configuration instructions are at  https://doxfer.webmin.com/Webmin/Samba_Windows_File_Sharing

Thanks TonyBronze for your reply and suggestion. I think it might help me to resolve my issue. first I have to learn how to install and configure this on peppermint. If I'll face any issue I'll get back to you. 

Thanks for your help and suggestion.

Hi PCNetSpecs,

Glad to hear PM9 on the way......  :)

When people will get this New PM9 release to download? Is it based on 17.04 or 18.04?

I request you please do something to resolve two bugs which is given below:-

1.  To Disable and Set a Delay on a Laptop's Touchpad While Typing

2.  Lot of new laptop facing issue with right click issue on Touch pad in 16.04  (PM8)

Few suggestion you may want to consider

I  understand that Peppermint is minimal Distro and it is great that way. But Are you Planning to  improve Peppermint repository to add more popular and most demanded software and utilities which can't  be Pre-install in Distro. So user will not require to add Third party or unknown PPA to install software or other one or two click  mechanism  to do the same.

Easy way to mount SMB  share (Windows Network Share folder) with new OS like windows 2012 or Windows 7 onward. Because Microsoft disable SMBv1 or SMBv2 by default in their OS. So Nemo Server connect and gigolo software application stop working with Windows shares or give issues and FSTAB method syntax change with every release. And its stop working.

There should be something in Peppermint control Panel to manage and install fonts in peppermint. 

It is just suggestion if it is fit along with you goals then do something otherwise ignore it.

Rajeev Gautam

Hi,

I don't know Is it the right question to ask on Linux forum why it is not on Microsoft Azure Market Place?  I don't know what you people think about and your opinion on this topic. These days few Linux Distribution already published on Microsoft Azure or AWS Platform. In future Peppermint can be published on Azure or AWS. There is any ideological conflict or stand on this. Share your thought on this ....
