    Nautilus and samba

    I recently upgraded my 20.04 LTS to 22.04 LTS. I am usning the Gnome Classic interface both because I like it and it works better on the older hardware I am using (it is an affordability issue). When it was first installed 22.04, I could go through Nautilus - Other Locations, type in smb://192.168.x.x to access a windows computer on my network. Now if I type in smb://... the text turns red and nothing happens. I have reinstalled samba and samba-client to no effect. It is still doing the same thing.

    Something that might be related to this is when I click on Places>Network I get a pop-up with the message -- Could not open location 'network:///'.

    As I think back this all occurred after I installed wine32 which I need for some Amateur radio programs that I run. wine32 required some library that I had to go back and install. When that library was installed funny things started to happen.

    Note: After posting I went and installed wine64. It required libgd3. So I apt-get install libgd3. As I watch wine32 is uninstalled and wine64 is installed after getting the library. I tried things out and they are still broken. So I went back and installed wine32 with libgd:i386. This may have nothing to do with the issues I am having.

    Looks like you have one and possibly two different problems here.

    The "could not open .." appears to be a broken or missing package. Install it:
    Code:
    sudo apt install gvfs-backends
    The other issue relates to a years long design flaw in gnome related to how it "browses" the network for hosts instead of "discovering" them.

    If smb://192.168.x.x doesn't work address the server AND it's share explicitly: smb://192.168.x.x/share-name

    Note: How wine affects any of this I do not know as I don't use it.

    Morbious1, That worked. I had to remove wine32 which involved removing libgd:i386 and libgphoto:i386. Those latter two files had to be the libgphoto:64 and libgd:64.

    I will have to find another way to install wine32 to run amateur radio programs.
