BTW, what's the forum's preferred way to mark an issue as resolved?

Re: File save issues on Synology NAS

So, it turns out the GVFS and SMB Client that the Ubuntu file manager uses is known to be buggy. I switched to a regular kernel mount and everything behaves properly in either dialect of SMB. I'll log a bug with the Ubuntu team as I found a simple way to replicate it with as single echo command rath...

Re: File save issues on Synology NAS

For anyone following along, my earlier statement about this working fine under Ubuntu 16 and not under Ubuntu 18 turned out to be only because Ubuntu 16.04 only speaks SMB1 out of the box and my share was set to allow SMB1 connections if SMB2 didn't work out. So the issue is really SMB1 vs SMB2 and ...

Re: File extension when saving freecad project v0.17

Or, if you don't want to move off v.17 yet, the 17 AppImage doens't have the extension problem, either.

Re: File save issues on Synology NAS

No fix found yet, but I did determine it happens on other SMB shares. Looking to further isolate, I tried both SMB1 and SMB2 on my NAS and my Windows machine and in both cases, saves to SMB1 work fine, but saves to SMB2 fail in the 0 byte file manner described.

Re: File save issues on Synology NAS

I enabled logging earlier in this process, but it didn't tell me anything was wrong, just what was happening. In a save from LibreOffice, the file is created under a temp name, the data is written, and then the temp file is renamed to it's real name (with a delete of the previous file if it's a save...

Re: Freecad 0.17 (Ubuntu 18.04) stopped using the .fcstd extension when saving files

FWIW, I tried the v17 AppImage and the file extension problem didn't happen there. It also uses a different version of Qt than what's in the PPA version, which may be why it's not a problem in that version. I'm not going to use it long-term because the issue doesn't bother me that much and I don't w...

Re: File save issues on Synology NAS

Ah! Sorry, I thought your recommendation to run via the AppImage was only for the v18 test earlier. I just downloaded and ran the v17 AppImage and the file extension problem doesn't occur when I run FreeCAD that way. Just entered "Test Cube" in the save dialog and the extension was added automatical...

Re: Freecad 0.17 (Ubuntu 18.04) stopped using the .fcstd extension when saving files

FYI, I also have this problem with v17 on Ubuntu 18.04. I've been able to work around it with manually adding the extension (either in the save dialog, or afterwards in Nautilus). The problem is gone in v18 for me even without adding the boolean, but I'm not sure I want to migrate yet, so I'm just d...

Re: File save issues on Synology NAS

FYI, I did some digging around the log files of the OS and found a repeated error: "mkdir failed on directory /var/cache/samba: Permission denied" which led me to Ubuntu bug 1758653. It made me wonder if this is the error I was looking for. The suggestion was to install samba-common or samba-common-...
