View Full Version : [kubuntu] Samba not linking since 8.1 installation

November 23rd, 2008, 03:27 PM

Has anyone else had any trouble with Samba shares not linking or at least not sharing files since installing 8.10? After opening the file manager and go to network I see Network services Samba Shares and Add network Icons, I then click on Samba Shares then workgroup and can see my 1 Windows Xp box with a directory and the 3 Ubuntu boxes but the Ubuntu boxes have a page with a large blue question mark if I click on either icon I get a blank page and down at the bottom of the dialog box a message No Items,No Folders, No Files. The other boxes are running 8.04 Kubuntu and 8.04 Xubuntu. I can see the XP files from Kubuntu box but no Kubuntu or Xubuntu files. Is this another 8.10 quirk or has someone else found this and figured out a workaround? Any help will be very much appreciated.
