Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 509832
smb protocol not handled by any application when opening from a bookmark
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:40:39 EST
Description of problem:
When using nautilus, I can type in a samba url such as smb://servername/share and it opens correctly using samba. However, if I use it to add a bookmark, then open the bookmark from the Places menu, it reports the following error:
Could not open location 'smb://servername/share'
No application is registered as handling this file.
Note, I am not sure the component that should be responsible, so i picked nautilus. I'm sure it's not samba's fault, but I'm not sure which package should install the proper url handler in gconf.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Nautilus version 2.26.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate using nautilus to a server share
2. Save the location as a bookmark
3. Open the bookmark from the Places menu on the panel.
Error as described above
Open the server share
This is a related bug report from ubuntu, using the workaround outlined there, I have fixed the problem:
Can you post a link to the workaround you mentioned?
Works fine here with nautilus-2.27.4-1.fc12 and gvfs-1.3.2-1.fc12
Do you have gnome-vfs2 installed?
The link is in the external bugs section. I guess I probably confused you with the description in Additional info. I originally planned to put the link there, but then I found there was an external bugs section, so I used that, but did not update the description.
gnome vfs stuff:
[root@steveslaptop ~]# rpm -qa | grep vfs
I've built new packages gvfs-1.3.3-2.fc12 and gvfs-1.2.3-9.fc11, please test.
This fixes only smb-browse part of gvfs, i.e. URIs like smb://server/ or smb://workgroup/. In contrary, smb://server/share should be working with the current packages.
gvfs-1.2.3-9.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
I can confirm that smb://servername/sharename indeed works with the current version, sorry for the error in my report.
Is there an easy way to install this update? It looks like about 8 different packages, would like to use a yum command, but not sure how. The advice on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/Updates_Testing did not work.
gvfs-1.2.3-9.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

You can either download them manually from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=125618 or wait a few days before they get into the repositories.
Let me know then if it fixed this issue.
Just downloaded the updates, it did indeed fix the issue, thanks!
