View Full Version : [xubuntu] Problem browsing remote windows shares using Fuse

November 4th, 2008, 07:18 PM

I am running Xubuntu. I have set up Fuse according to the howto here:


It works fine without any error messages when I mount using FuseSmbTool. I can also browse the remote shares (located on Windows machines) with other samba browsers like TkSmb and from Windows itself of course. However, when using Fuse in Thunar I am not able to see the remote files. I see the worksgroups and the shared folders, but when I click on a shared folder nothing happens for a while and I get an error message saying "Failed to open directory "Public"". I've also tried to access the shares using MC, but I get a similar error message. I know samba is set up correctly since I can access and work on the remote files using other samba browsers. But I would really like to have it work in Thunar which I use all the time on my Xubuntu machines.

Help greatly appreciated
