External storage says "smbclient is not installed"

Nextcloud Hub 6 (27.1.4)
Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS
PHP 8.1.25

Hi, I have a problem with external storage. It says “smbclient is not installed” but I installed it. I looked on forums and none of the solutions seems to work. What should i do?

  • How, precisely, did you install smbclient? There are several different methods and means of using it.
  • What installation method did you use for Nextcloud Server?

I installed smbclient using apt and nextcloud using snap.

Aw, yes, that is why you’re having trouble.

Snap’s are (semi)confined environments. They don’t use things installed in host’s OS.

I think the community Snap suggests using SMB/CIFS via FUSE + Local External Storage: How to add samba shares and local shares · nextcloud-snap/nextcloud-snap Wiki · GitHub instead.
