Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 114480
default 'Computer' entry has broken link
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:41:46 EDT
[notting@nostromo: ~]$ rpm -q nautilus gnome-vfs2
Double click on 'Computer'.
Double click on 'Network'
The action associated with network:/// is invalid
You can configure GNOME to associate a different application or viewer
with this file type. Do you want to associate an application or viewer
with this file type now?
<cancel> <associate action>
Is 'associate action' really HIGgy?
Click on 'Associate action':
Application "nautilus" (process 2150) has crashed
due to a fatal error.
I have the same problem. This is using nautilus-2.5.5-1. Furthermore,
if I select File/Open Location... and type in smb://computername, it
shows the shared folders on that server with no problem.
Double-clicking on one of the folders to open it produces the same
dialog box as Bill explains above. If I then again select File/Open
Location... and type in smb://computername/sharename (using the shared
folder I just tried to double-click), it opens the folder with no
problem. From there I can browse deeper into the shared folder's
directory structure with no more problems.
Fixed in gnome-vfs2 2.5.6-3
Just upgraded to gnome-vfs2-2.5.7-1 and this problem is only partially
fixed. Opening Network now works, and opening a computer inside
Network also works. But when I try to open a shared folder inside a
computer, I still get the "Associate Action" dialog box and the folder
The way I found to fix this was to go to Main Menu -> Preferences ->
File Types and Programs. Click "Add Service". Type in a description,
"smb" for the Protocol, and "nautilus %s" for the Program. After that,
opening shared folders worked fine. Shouldn't this entry be part of
(doesn't look like I'm allowed to reopen this bug. should i refile
under a new bug?)
smb: certainly should not be in the mime info. You don't want to
launch a new nautilus every time you open a directory on smb. I don't
understand why it doesn't work though. It works well for me...
Anything I can do to help narrow down the problem? I'm running the
latest packages from Fedora devel. The computers are on a local LAN
and part of the same workgroup. I'm connecting to Samba (the version
from RedHat 7.2), Windows 2000, and Windows XP servers.
I can try removing and reinstalling all the packages involved. Would
that just be gnome-vfs2, gnome-vfs2-smb, and nautilus?
I removed the above packages (along with gnome-vfs2-devel), made sure
there were no left over files, and then reinstalled the packages. I'm
still seeing the same problem.
I see the same problem too, unassociated action when double clicking
on smb:// share lists
