Hello,

I can access my samba shares with Nautilus, but if I open an application, ie: RealPlayer, and decide to open a media file, in my open window, my samba shares and my network are not available. So I can't select a file located on a samba share. Also, if I open Nautilus, go to my samba share, right-click the file and select "Open with RealPlayer", nothing happens. If I drag and drop the file into RealPlayer, I get an error message saying "The following component is required: smb". How could I have my samba share and files listed as if they were located on my computer seemlessly, please?
It seems to be a problem in Ubuntu...
Thanks,
