    I’m trying to connect to macs on my networks and/or my synology NES

    I’ve installed afpfs-ng and fuse

    I tried to mount an AFP drive using the following command in /etc/fstab

    NAME:/shared /home/pi/NAME/shared url automounted,url==afp://id:pw@NAME/Shared 0 0

    however when I try to sudo mount -a

    I get a
    mount: unknown filesystem type ‘url’

    HELP!

    Hi,

    i’m sure you’ve read already a hole bunch of tutorials, but i found a nice one here:

    https://forums.plex.tv/index.php/topic/14201-howto-automount-afpsmb-shares-using-autofs/

    First i would try to check this command and to see what happends:
    sudo automount -vc

    also i recognized in your mounting textline:

    NAME:/shared /home/pi/NAME/shared url automounted,url==afp://id:pw@NAME/Shared 0 0

    first you write your share in lower case:
    NAME:/shared

    but you finish with upper case
    =afp://id:pw@NAME/Shared

    i’m not sure but i could imagine that mounting in fstab is case sensitive

    Are you just trying to get ROMs to your Pi?

    I just ask because if you want the best possible performance when playing games, adding packages to the Pi is not the way to go. If it were me, I would just use SCP to copy the files from the Mac to the Pi. For example, from terminal on the Mac

    scp <local file> <remote user>@<remote machine>:<remote path>

    Thanks, I usually FTP the roms, but I wanted to set up a share to a dropbox directory that is “live” updated with new pictures to use in a picture viewer
