There is a switch for it in the CMake build process, FREECAD_USE_QT_FILEDIALOG. Apparently you turned it off in the last package update (freecad_0.17.13541-1ppa10).
I checked the gitpackaging release-qt5 branch, nothing was changed in comparison to the release branch, and in FreeCAD's CMakeLists.txt, FREECAD_USE_QT_FILEDIALOG is still set to ON in the source code; so there should be no reason to have to explicitly call it in the rules file. I don't understand why the last PPA build switched it off.

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 rather than through FreeCAD.

Code: Select all

echo "This is a test" > /run/user/1000/gvfs/smb-share\:server\=diskstation\,share\=fileshare/TestFile.txt
This would create a 0 byte file when speaking SMB2 and the actual file with data when speaking SMB1.

Thanks to all who contributed to this troubleshoot. :)

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

Good to hear that and thanks for being verbose.

P.S. It might make sense to test Ubuntu 18.10/19.04. To see if things improved regarding SMB2 support and GVfs.

You just edit your first post, and add a [Solved] prefix to the subject.
