Don't know what i did...but i did it good ! lost my LAN...was trying to configure firewall...messed up so I removed firewall.
I have 3 computers on network, 1. primary (Win7), 2. secondary(WinXP) and 3. Win7-linux.
#1 and #2 can share files with #3 win7 AND LinuxMint16. But....#3 LinuxMint16 does NOT show ANY network.
When I click on "Browse Network" , I get this error message:
"FAILED TO OPEN "/ on" . The specified location is not supported. "
Samba config is correct...nothing changed in it and was working fine.
Any ideas on what changed in LinuxMint ?
Found my answer on Google Search, no less! lol. Another had this problem and someone said: gvfs-backends has been removed, thus limiting Thunar's network browsing.
so on a whim and desire for a hamburger, I terminal(ly) installed gvfs-backends and voila...got my lan back ! Big thank to whoever
knew the answer to this problem.
