New to Mint and trying to get it all working with my existing windows home network.
Installed Mint 14 Cinnamon on a laptop, very nice. It instals fine and connects to the Internet, either via wireless or ethernet.
When I try to look at the Windows Network clicking Network shows Windows Network and clicking that shows Workgroup which is correct. Clicking that and Mint thinks for some time and then says "Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server". It does not display any connected PCs.
From Windows I can see the Mint Laptop and click on it. Windows won't display laptop contents, suspect this is because of file system.
My distro was the latest from Mint and I did a complete instal over the old op sys. As far as I can see all the Samba bits came with the distro.
I am sure I am missing something simple.
All help would be appreciated.
