USB Folder Uploads

Ok, I've searched the forum and can't find an answer.

I am using Ubuntu 16.04 and I am unable to figure out how to upload gcode from a thumb drive. The path to the thumb drive is supposed to be /media/<username>/<Thumbdrive Label>

When I try to use that path, I can get to /media/<username> but it will not go any farther. I am able to use terminal to see the rest of the path, just not in Server.

Any help would be appreciated


  • The problem is that you mount the usb drive while server has a different id and no read permission to read the usb drive. At least this is what I guess. If it is mounted also group readable you could try adding repetierserver user to your group.

    Thanks... I used the following to make the media devices available.

    sudo setfacl -R -m user:repetierserver:rwx /media

    Now I repetierserver is able to drill down into the media devices which includes USB.
