I've always had this strange problem with OSMC & Linux Mint

Maybe there’s someone out there who’s seen this and has figured out why. Or maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

If I open up network:/// in linux mint it shows me all the machines on my LAN. OSMC has 3 different entries.

osmc, OSMC, and Samba Shares on osmc.

OSMC and Samba Shares on osmc take me to what seems to the same place: smb://osmc/ and smb://osmc.local/.

My issue is with the first one. When I try to open up osmc, the program either crashes (Nemo) or shows me this error message (Nautilus).

It’s a minor annoyance, but it’s been annoying me for a long time. Would be great to find a fix.

Edit: I switched over to MATE to see what Caja would give me, and it paid off:

So this is supposed to be a SFTP link but the path seems to be malformed?


sudo nano /etc/avahi/services/sftp.service 

Change the path in the following line:


I changed mine to:


Restart avahi-daemon to apply changes:

sudo service avahi-daemon restart

Nice find. Fixed here:

It will be in next month’s update.
