View Full Version : [ubuntu] Rhythmbox cannot read from network drives
December 18th, 2008, 04:19 PM
after the upgrade to 8.10 Rhythmbox cannot read from smb drives.
I think I have seen a bug report but cannot find it.
Can somebody confirm the bug or even help me with that please.

Sorry, don't use Rhythmbox; use audacious. But back in an earlier release (7.04?) I believe I was able to read (and play) audio files from a networked SMB drive by clicking the file in Nautilus.
Now (in 8.10), I find I have to manually mount the drive before I can access it.
I do that using an entry in FSTAB so the drive shows up on my desktop and I can select it through audacious.
Hope this helps.

no it doesn´t. Rhythmbox could access SMB drives in 8.04 but after the release change . . . it does not update the library and does not play from networked drives.
Does not seem to be a networking problem since totem works just fine.

I mounted the networked drives with cifs instead of smb . . . that worked now.
Thanks anyway . . .
