Can't open a file located on a Samba share

Bug Description

Binary package hint: audacious

I can only open a file located on a Samba share right-clicking the file and selecting "Open with » Audacious".
If I launch Audacious and go through "File » Play file", "File » Play location", "File » Add files", or "File » Add Internet Address", I can't open a file located on a Samba share. Also, I can't drag and drop a file located on a Samba share to the Audacious playlist (nothing happens). I'm using Audacious 2.3 and Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, kernel 2.6.32-25

Yes, I'm using Maverick, and I'm still having the problem.

I have the same problem with natty and audacious 2.4.4.
Open file dialog doesn't contain any information about mounted samba shares.

Thank you for your patience. I can confirm that there does not appear to be a way to open a file that is on a share that has been accessed from the file manager (in this case, on Lubuntu, from PCManFM) - but this might be more like a feature request rather than a bug.

The other error mentioned in the original bug report no longer seem to be current bugs. I can successfully drag a file from the file manager to Audacious and have it play without issue.

If you are still experiencing this issue on a currently supported release, can you please add a new comment here? Thank you.
