    OK, what works for me all the time is to install or reinstall samba and here is how I do it.
    Fire up a Terminal window and;

    sudo apt-get install samba

    sudo smbpasswd -a USERNAME

    (USERNAME,is your actual username.)

    mkdir /home/USERNAME/test

    Next, backup copy of the original smb.conf file to your home folder,

    sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf ~

    Now use your text editor of choice to edit smb.conf:

    sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

    Once smb.conf has loaded, add this to the very end of the file:

    [test]
    path = /home/USERNAME/test
    available = yes
    valid users = USERNAME
    read only = no
    browsable = yes
    public = yes
    writable = yes

    (Keep in mind no spaces between the lines and also that there should be a single space both before and after each of the equal signs.)

    These settings will share the test folder we created earlier, and give your username and your username alone permission to read and write to the folder save smb.conf, exit the text editor, and restart Samba;

    sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart

    Samba should be working now; try accessing the shared folder from another computer on your LAN.
    This worked for my broken samba on 3x 9.10 upgrades and 4 x 9.10 fresh installs, the network has 2 x vin7 machines and 2 x 6p.

    fred	ALL=NOPASSWD:/bin/umount
    Never ever ever perform step 2. This is a potentially large security risk. To make the share mountable by anyone without sudo, all you have to do is add the line to /etc/fstab, and include the "users" option like so:
    Code:
    //winbox/myfiles /media/myfiles cifs users,credentials=/home/fred/.auth.winbox.fred,noperm,uid=fred,gid=fred
    Then this will work:
    Code:
    mount /media/myfiles
    For more information on how to mount shares using CIFS (as Mr_Bumpy shows), follow the howto in the 2nd link in my sig, complete with troubleshooting tips.

    Those of you getting the "Unable to mount location. Failed to retrieve share list from server." error and are sure that your firewall is configured according to the directions under "Problem 3"; are any of you using Win7 in your network? If so, please see this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...4&postcount=34

    I tried adding the mounting commands to "~/.bash_profile"

    Re: Howto: Fix Windows share browsing issues

    I've read through all 20 pages of this thread and can't get my problem resolved.

    I have a clean reinstall of Ubuntu 9.04, a Fedora Core 8 samba server, an Ubuntu 9.04 samba enabled laptop, and two or three Windows XP boxes.

    Before the reinstall, I was able to see everything from my desktop 9.04 box from Nautilus. Now, I can only see the other samba servers on the network.

    I can attach to any machine via the smbclient cli, and through nautilus or firefox using smb://hostname with no problem.

    I've followed (I think) every word of advice at the start of this thread to no avail.

    I'm out of ideas at this point. Any other pointers would be appreciated.

    Below is the output of findsmb. smbtree produced no output at all.

    Well...

    I don't know how, but it magically started working again.
    Here's what I did, although I've done the same thing a half dozen times or more in the last 24 hours.

    1. Uninstalled samba, samba-common, smbclients, fusesmb, smbfs, swat, winbind, and libsmbclient (I *think*).
    2. Installed the samba4 counterparts of each.
    3. Reboot
    4. Ran some samba4-client commands: all failed in some way or other.
    5. Uninstalled all the samba4 pieces I could find.
    6. Reinstalled all pieces that were uninstalled in step 1
    7. Reboot.

    Boom. Magic.

    I'm not real sure, but I might not have uninstalled fusesmb in previous cycles. If not, that is maybe what did it this time. I hate it when things start working again and I can't confidently identify why.

    I'm a little reluctant to reboot now.
