Re: Synapse and NAS mount
Synapse is awesome indeed. It uses the locate command to find files, which in turn depends on updatedb to index and update the database. What you need is to edit /etc/updatedb.conf (as root) to make changes to the indexing process in order to include you NAS.
First, make sure your NAS mount point does not fall under one of the PRUNEPATHS, and if so remove the directory entry.
Then, do the same for the PRUNEFS. For instance, if your NAS uses CIFS, you want to remove cifs from the PRUNEFS list.
Save the file and run
(Note: updatedb is scheduled daily in Ubuntu)
