Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 234819
Nautilus cannot display "smb://pc/share".
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:31:13 EST
Description of problem: Try to access smb.
Nautilus cannot display "smb://".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nautilus i386 188.8.131.52-2.fc7 development 4.3 M
nautilus-extensions i386 184.108.40.206-2.fc7 development 39 k
samba i386 3.0.24-10.fc7 development 2.9 M
samba-client i386 3.0.24-10.fc7 development 4.0 M
samba-common i386 3.0.24-10.fc7 development 6.5 M
Considering severity=High, as a lot of offices have mixed envs.
Is this really still a problem? From what I can see on the latest fedora
version(s) nautilus correctly recognizes smb:// as a Windows Network. Thank you
for your report, however, I'm going to change this to NEEDINFO until we can
determine the correct resolution status.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I have the same problem that I get to in a different way. Everything appears to
work OK apart from the error dialog.
Places->Connect to server
Select Service type as "windows share"
Fill out the rest of the dialog and select "Connect"
An error dialog appears saying:
"Can't display location "smb://my server/my share"
The specified location is not mounted
However, a network folder icon does appear on the desktop and I can access the
files in the folder.
It's the same for me. And a second icon appears on the desktop. See also bug
#448008. It's a duplicate probably?
