How do I modify files on an smb share using kate and konqueror?
When browsing a remote smb share using konqueror, I'm unable to save
changes to files using kate. For instance, using konqueror I can open
pre-existing test.txt on smb://remotemachine via kate. Then
(1) If I modify test.txt, close kate, and choose to save changes, kate
just saves the modified file to localmachine. Nothing on remotemachine
is changed or is requested to be changed.
(2) If I modify text.txt, and save changes without closing kate, I'm
File Was Modified on Disk - Kate
The file 'file:/var/tmp/kdecache-user/krun/7440.0.test.txt' was changed
(deleted) on disk by another program!
What do you want to do?
Reload File; Ignore Changes; Cancel.
Again, test.txt on remotemachine remains unchanged.
I don't think this is a problem with file permissions, as I'm able to
browse via konqueror, modify and save test.txt via gedit: first gedit
saves changes locally to a temp file, then KIOExec notices there have
been changes to the file and asks me if I want to upload them to the
remote machine. I'm also able to browse smb://remotemachine via
nautilus, use kate, and save changes to remotemachine directly in kate
without closing kate.
I'm running Centos 4 and the KDE 3.3 that came with it.
