Ubuntu access to samba/cifs files

Post by origamot »

I am running mmex 1.2.7 on Ubuntu, and my mmex files is stored on a Windows file system. This file system is mounted via autofs on my linux file system.
I can open the file, but when I create a new operation I have the following error :
18:50:27: PAYEE_V1: Exception database is locked[5]: database is locked, {
    "PAYEEID" : 459,
    "PAYEENAME" : "xxx",
    "CATEGID" : 34,
    "SUBCATEGID" : 54
}
18:50:29: CHECKINGACCOUNT_V1: Exception database is locked[5]: database is locked, {
    "TRANSID" : 4744,
    "ACCOUNTID" : 1,
    "TOACCOUNTID" : -1,
    "PAYEEID" : 459,
    "TRANSCODE" : "Withdrawal",
    "TRANSAMOUNT" : 25,
    "STATUS" : "",
    "TRANSACTIONNUMBER" : "4817524",
    "NOTES" : "xxx",
    "CATEGID" : 34,
    "SUBCATEGID" : 54,
    "TRANSDATE" : "2016-07-09",
    "FOLLOWUPID" : -1,
    "TOTRANSAMOUNT" : 25
}


   Thank you in advance for your support, and thank you very much for this great project !

Do you have write authorizations on the share? I'm using it on a Windows share (but Windows client) and it works fine.

Yes, I can rename my mmb database, or edit a file in this directory. Files are mounted with the -rw------- attributes. My files are on a Windows7 computer.

Strange.. Could you try if you have the same problem from a Windows Client?

I switched from Windows Vista to Ubuntu just a few weeks ago. I had no problem working with mmex on the distant file on the other windows computer.. Now that I am on Ubuntu I have this error. with mmex.
