Bug Description

When trying to share a folder via usershare extension (using the nautilus context menu), a popup may notify about the missing samba package and wheather you want to install it.
If you do so, you can share the folder, but you cannot access shared folder on the network, since cifs-utils is missing.
After manually installing cifs-utils everything works fine.
(On 10.04 instead of cifs-utils, the package to install is smbfs)

This should be changed, wheather it is a bug or intended.

(Tested on Ubuntu 10.04 and 12.04)
