    Does anyone know why it doesn't show up in thunar? ( I can mount it just fine using mount //192..... )

    Again, sorry for asking an xp-based question, but I figure you guys might have the most experience with this kind of problem
    try
    Code:
    fusesmb.cache
    then wait till it shows up.

    thanks, I wrote that post just after trying fusesmb.cache, and came up with nothing, but then I left it for a while, and now everything's showing up fine

    cheers

    recently my Windows desktop stop appearing in the network folder. I can still access it through its ip address, but not through fusefs. I do not remember that I have changed anything eithe rin Windows nor in my Ubuntu network settings.

    Re: How to: Xubuntu - Thunar Native Windows Network Browsing

    I currently have the same problem that Tazix and Miguellint have seen (I can browser machines but opening an actual share gives the connection timed out error).

    It takes about 1minute for the error to come up after clicking on a share so I don't really believe it has timed out as this should be ample time.

    I have fiddled around with things as Tazix explains but that has not helped me. I too have notied that the owner and permissions on /media/network is being changed to me as the owner with only read permissions for all others. This occurs when fusesmb is running, however started.

    Any further ideas anyone?

    Also another issue I have is that when I try to connect to the Xubuntu share (setup in the Shared Folders app) from my XP box I am prompted to login. Whatever username and password I give it always fails so I cannot connect to the Xubuntu shares either. The shared folder has been setup with 777 permissions. I am sure this one is something stupid that I am missing - please enlighten me.

    Appreciated

    I hate to be negative but I don't think any solution that requires a permanent mount of a windows share gives you the same network browsing ability native to both konqueror and nautilus.

    Permanently mounting a share gives you fast access to that share only (you can use fuse or "mount -t smbfs"). As a sysadmin in a busy heterogeneous environment I need to do ad-hoc browsing of numerous windows shares. So I need a client that will accept a unc path, a username and a password. Yes, I am talking about a front end for smbclient, and yes, I can and often do use the terminal client. But sometimes it's nice to have the graphic file mgr so that you can see what you are doing.

    I hope that in the future the thunar developers will consider building in support for smb and ssh/sftp. That would make xfce complete, imho.

    Cheers, Steve

    Well.. I can help you with that part.

    If you don't want a user and password at all:
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Open a terminal and:
    sudo mousepad /etc/samba/smb.conf

    change the line:
    security = USER (Or whatever)
    to:
    security = SHARE

    Then look for your share section and make sure it has these lines:
    [share name]
    path =/path/of/share
    read only = no
    guest ok = yes

    That should let you in your Xubuntu's shares from Windows without needing a user and password.

    ------

    If you want to keep a user / password thing going
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    You need to add samba users. Samba doesn't use native linux accounts... it has it's own accounts.

    So, you need to open a terminal and do:
    sudo smbpasswd -a USERNAME

    It will prompt you for a password.

    Then from windows... you use the samba user and password you just created.

    Hope that helps,

    -Taz

    Actually none of my Windows shares appear in the network folder, while Linux samba shares appear all right. I wonder why it is happening...

    Re: How to: Xubuntu - Thunar Native Windows Network Browsing

    Just posting a big thanks to Tazix for your excellent "HOW TO" for xubuntu network browsing.

    Worked a treat and was just what I was after. I'm a complete noob to Linux but am an IT specialist so it's something to get my teeth into. I wanted quick access to a Buffalo Linkstation shared network drive on my own network. It was really bugging me as I have a simple workgroup with open permissions but I just couldn't get xubuntu to connect to the shares. I now have the network folder in Thunar !!

    So thats not bad in 2 days Ubuntu !! I've got my wireless USB adapter working and now network shares working !!

    Next week the world ..........

    Re: How to: Xubuntu - Thunar Native Windows Network Browsing

    Just curious as to what your solution is for shares that require a specific username password. The windows boxes show up fine, but I get an access denied to my linux share due to it having to authenticate.

    Anyway to have a prompt?

    Should also add that I'm perfectly fine mounting password required shares with linneighborhood (which I currently am). Was just wondering if there was a way to access password shares via thunar...cause the thunar method is damn nice.
