Nautilus does not show network shares

Postby paulwhalley » 2009-12-25 01:14

On a fresh Debian install, Nautilus fails to show other local systems & servers under Network.

These local systems are displayed correctly if I access them directly as smb://ip. I can also list them successfully using avahi-discover.

I have not had this problem using Linux Mint.

Any solutions or good guesses?

Do you have the samba package installed? If these are Windows shares you'll need it.

You'll probably need to install packages samba, samba-common, smbfs and smbclient ...

That might get you started on your reading. :wink: Please let us know how it goes.
