View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unable to browse windows share

February 26th, 2009, 05:50 PM
I have installed ubuntu 8.10 desktop, ran all the updates and everything looks good.
But I have a windows2003 domain also and when I browse the network I see
Windows networks,
See the domain,
see the servers in the domain
but when I click on the server - and expect to see the shares on that machine - nothing gets listed?
My son has a Macbook with OsX with same problem.
"Neddless" to say my XP has no problem :=):lolflag:
Any ideas?

TIA Svavar

Maybe you are experiencing a bug in gvfs that prevented shares of some OS's from being listed - a fix was released (at least in the proposed updates for intrepid) a few weeks ago - try updating your system (you can enable proposed updates in system -> administration -> software sources). Alternatively, if you specify the exact path, you should be able to access the share, i.e. write in the nautilus address field
