    Only "Custom location" as Service type

    Hi everybody,

    I'm writing here to ask you a help.
    I installed Ubuntu 9.04 this morning and everything looked to work correctly.
    Now I'm trying to connect to a Windows share through the "Connect to Server" dialog but when I attempt to choose "Windows share" as a Service type I cannot find it, I can only choose "Custom location", nothing else.

    I tried to connect directly writing the address in Nautilus like "smb://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx", but I received the message:

    "Could not find XXX."
    Please check the spelling and try again.
    The same if I try to access at "Network" places, I get back:
    "Could not display "network:///"
    Nautilus cannot handle "network" locations.
    Anybody experienced something similar? Any advice?

    Thank you very much.
    Andrea

    Same problem here.... Suddenly ubuntu doesn't recognize my usb stick, and i only get "custom location" in the places -> connect to server.

    What i did before when everything worked. I connect to an FTP, and my usb stick also got mounted automatically. Before i rebooted i unmounted the FTP mount it automatically made, and the usb mount. After the reboot, i got the problem.

    I had the same issue... turns out I uninstalled gvfs-backends due to iPhone issues. Reinstalling seems to fix the issue.

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install gvfs-backends

    This just happened to me too. The fix works. Any idea on what might cause it, I didn't uninstall anything.
