I'm trying to make a media server with Samba, but I don't need or want mangled names, so I disabled that in
smb.conf. (I'm not expecting any Windows clients to connect.) However, when I do this, those files that were mangled just disappear. This is what the directory should contain:
Chorale Prelude "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott", BWV 720.flac Chorale Prelude "Nun freut euch, lieben Cristen", BWV 734a.flac Chorale Prelude "Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme", BWV 645.flac Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542 "The Great": II. Fugue.flac folder.jpg Fugue in G major, BWV 571 "The Jig".flac Fugue in G minor, BWV 578 "The Little".flac Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 582: II. Fugue.flac Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 582: I. Passacaglia.flac Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue in C major, BWV 564: II. Adagio.flac Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue in C major, BWV 564: III. Fugue.flac Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue in C major, BWV 564: I. Toccata.flac Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565: I. Fugue.flac Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565: I. Toccata.flac Toccata in F major, BWV 540.flac
With mangled names disabled, this is what is visible from an Ubuntu client:
folder.jpg Toccata in F major, BWV 540.flac
And this is my
[global] security = user map to guest = bad user guest account = nobody mangled names = no [T&S Media Server] path = /media/shadow-mini only guest = yes guest ok = yes
I have tried adding the lines
unix charset = UTF-8,
dos charset = CP850, and
hide special file = no to no avail.
In other words, disabling mangled names just makes those files disappear from the client.
How can I still see all the files with their original names on Samba?
