View Full Version : [ubuntu] Help me troubleshoot samba

January 20th, 2011, 07:44 PM

I have 3 pc's on home network. All dual boot Windows and Ubuntu. All have Samba installed, plus personal file sharing.

When all 3 are booted into linux, all 3 show the public folders on all 3 pc's, but only 2 can access the other pc's folders.

I can't find any difference between the systems to explain why one pc (10.04) cannot mount either of the other two public folders:

Unable to mount location. DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

even though their icons are shown in 'network'.

The public folder on the troublesome pc can be accessed from the other two (10.04 & 10.10).

Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks

Having same problem. I can see all the public share but am unable to access the folders. I get the same error message.

I will let you know if I reach a solution. I am a newbie to ubuntu but I love it.

good luck.
