    Accessing windows shares from Ubuntu [ version 10.04 ]

    Hi Guys,

    Ubuntu version : 10.04 Lucid

    From a very long time I am experiencing below error while accesing the windows share

    Error 1 :
    Sorry, could not display all the contents of "CRM_Attach": DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
    Error 2 :

    Error: DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)
    Please select another viewer and try again.
    Both came when accessing the same location. I can navigate to few folders but then on accessing one folder I get errors.

    Suppose I am accessing smb://IP_ADDRESS/folder1/folder2/folder3/folder4/folder5

    folder4 gives this error,till folder3 it works fine.

    Any solution or alternatives??

    Thanks,
    Rawat

    smb://IP_ADDRESS/folder1/folder2/folder3/folder4/folder5
    That's the wrong syntax. It should be:
    Code:
    smb://IP_ADDRESS/share-name

    By any chance did you set up access from Ubuntu and have it remember the password for the share forever? There's an old bug that should have been fixed by now:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...fs/+bug/463267

    You'll need to remove the credentials from "Passwords and Encryption Keys" for that share: System > Preferences > Passwords and Encryption Keys. Somewhere in there is the saved credentials for that remote share.

    Before posting here I searched about the problem and found the same.

    Did that but still no success.

    There is another bug I guess it is not fixed.

    So I was looking for some workarounds
