smb4k for Gnome?

Postby wesley » Sun Jun 22, 2008 5:24 pm

hi guys

i'm using Mint 5, i had same problem with Ubuntu 8.04 so i'll ask anyway

basically i want to browse network hard drives in XP machine,i cannot see any XP machines in browser at all.

i gave up and searched on google and found smb4k but it's for KDE but installed.

Opened smb4k and BANG, i can see the XP machine within my network. clicked SERVER, it's asks for administrator password, then browse inside the 2 NTFS partitions. play videos streaming etc with no problem. Also automatically appears on my desktop. see the screenshots.



why i cant do this with default Gnome browser?

Don't really know, but it seems that Nautilus is a bit "kinky" at times
Basically this is about how permissions are handled
You could also try to install fusesmb but as it's working for you maybe not...
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
