    Nautilus: cannot mount samba share

    Hi.
    I've a Samba server on my LAN, and several Ubuntu clients. One of these clients cannot mount the samba share!
    This client is a 12.04 fully updated, it used to work until some updates ago.
    When I try to access the "smb://" location in nautilus I get something like this (freely translated from italian):
    Nautilus is unable to handle "smb:" locations
    From command line:
    Code:
    $ gvfs-mount smb://server/share
    Error mounting location: volume doesn't implement mount action
    smbclient works great. mount works great.

    Code:
    $ dpkg -l |grep cifs

    I even tried this but doesn't seem to work.

    What's wrong?
    Thanks

    root@pietro-aio:~# uname -a
    Because you are logged in as root. Log in as a non-root user and try it again.

    thanks but from the commands you can see above, gvfs-mount was issued as user, not as root. only package and diagnostic commands were ran as root user
