Hi all,
I noticed tonight when I go to Places, Network, it will bring up an icon for Windows Network, and I can drill down to my Windows box. But I can't see the other Linux box (a laptop running Kubuntu), and the same behavior occurs on the laptop when trying to view the Linux desktop. The laptop is connected wirelessly, if that makes a difference. Each box can ping the others, but I don't yet know how to browse one Linux box from the other Linux box.
