Thunar (file manager in Lite & Mint Xfce) can use SFTP to access your files on other machines that you can use SSH to log into; many other file managers have similar capability.  I don't have a specific incantation for Lite (or Mint) but a Ubuntu focussed how-to article might be enough to get you started.

There's a related technique known as SSHFS which doesn't use SFTP as such but rather creates a virtual file system over an SSH session.  Midnight Commander is one tool I know that supports this but there are others.

And there's also scp (another part of the SSH suite) which can do file copies from the command line.

There are several other options with older school functionality but you have to be prepared to do some configuration to take advantage of them (.e.g NFS & Samba).

If your router has file sharing support (quite often using Samba to support Windows shares), perhaps by using a USB stick for temporary storage, that might also provide an acceptable solution...

See if you can install this package on Mint - http://repo.linuxliteos.com/linuxlite/pool/main/n/nitroshare/nitroshare_0.3.4-1ppa1~artful1_amd64.deb then again, it depends, you may be trying to install in on a version of Mint that is either behind or infront of Lite versioning. Then you'll just get errors. https://github.com/nitroshare/nitroshare-desktop looking old now, might have to replace it soon.

If Mint doesn't provide a compatible version of Nitroshare, there is not much we can do about that. I would have posted in their Forums about this, not here.

You have 2 posts with the similar questions - both sharing files across a network... please use a single post (Merged topics)...

You may want to have a look here: https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/network.html#shares

Also ensure Firewalls are off and not the issue - if works with off then a rule would need added...
If both are connected to the same router and have a corresponding IP address (ie. both 192.168.X.YYY) once you have a share and permissions...


Also the main Network heading https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/network.html

I have Linux lite 5.2 on my laptop and Linux mint cinnamon 20.0 non my PC both are on wifi with my internet I can connect via Bluetooth but unable with any other file share program. I had warpinator on both systems but it didn't seem to work they could not "see each other "

I have nitroshare on my laptop but there seems to be no version for linux mint.

The question is how do I connect both computers on my network? I have no idea and its very frustrating as Nitroshare worked brilliantly between my lap top and pc when it was windows 10( its now linux mint)

Any advice is greatly appreciated

pCloud has a virtual drive when you download the software. I use it in Linux Lite 5.2 and Windows 10. It works really well, but you have to be online to use the virtual drive. I have the lifetime subscription, which is worth the money.

Is there an easy way to share files between a laptop running Linux Lite 5.2  and a PC running Linux mint cinnamon 20.0 ? Nitro-share is NOT available I have warpinator on my PC but it is not available ( as far as I can see) for Lite and filezilla is way too complicated

any advice would be welcome
