    I'm having that kind of problem, and can't seem to figure it out. I've read many posts on many threads and haven't come across anything that fixes my problem. Could you please take a look at the thread I started here?: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9636515

    Re: Howto: Fix Windows share browsing issues

    I have been at this for a while now. Your instructions have gotten me further than I've been in days. But of course I'm posting because everything isn't quite right yet.

    I run an Ubuntu (Hardy) file/web server on a home network consisting (until now) of one Windows laptop (Win7).
    The new guy on the network is an Ubuntu (Lucid) laptop.
    Win7 continues to access my shares exactly as it should and is not a problem at all so we'll disregard it's existence for the sake of this exercise.

    I should mention that the Hardy server has three physical drives, two of which are formatted NTFS from when I used to run a Windows server. (The third is the OS drive so it's ext3)

    Of these three physical drives there are four logical drives, and thus four shares on the server:
    Web, Photos, Music, and Files

    So here is the issue:

    Using Lucid laptop, all four shares show up in Network.
    Lucid laptop can now mount and access Web perfectly (Thanks a million!)
    However it can not mount Photos, Music, or Files.

    Upon attempting to open either of those three, the error dialog reports:
    Unable to mount location
    Failed to mount Windows share

    After wracking my brain the only thing I can think of is that Web, being ext3, is of course mountable with no issue. So perhaps Lucid is having an issue with the other three shares because they are NTFS?? (if it matters, I do have ntfs-3g installed on both Ubuntu machines).

    Sorry for the long post but I figured the more information you had the better help you could provide.

    Thanks!

    Do all of your server's drives have an entry in /etc/fstab? If not, that's probably your problem.

    Yes, the server's /etc/fstab file has an entry for each hard drive so they will automount on startup.

    Please post the contents of /etc/fstab

    Contents of server's /etc/fstab

    Notes:
    /dev/hda1 = primary OS drive (contains the www share that works just fine)
    /dev/hda2 = swap space
    /dev/hdb1 = music
    /dev/hdb2 = files
    /dev/sdc1 = photos

    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>

    Re: Howto: Fix Windows share browsing issues

    I think your problem is the "umask=007,gid=46" options. Try this instead:
    1) Find your locale:
    Code:
    locale | grep LANG
    Mine looks like this ->
    Code:
    $ locale | grep LANG
    LANG=en_US.UTF-8
    2) Make your fstab line look like this (locale from above in red) ->
    Code:
    UUID=1D835098019257C9 /media/hdb1     ntfs    defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
    Test that and see if that allows your music to be seen. If so, repeat the process for the rest of your NTFS drives.

    The locale fix worked!
    Thanks dmizer, you're a rockstar.

    You have to have installed the libapache2.2 and libapache-mod-dns from Synaptic to get mounts to work with SAMBA in Lucid.

    Humm, neither of those packages are available in the repositories I have enabled in my Lucid install.

    Also, there is really no reason to need apache or anything remotely related to it in order to make samba mounting or browsing work. Perhaps you've installed ebox?
