Bug Description

dolphin can't see the samba folders properly on kubuntu

this problem is VERY old i can remember this since there was kde 4.0

THE PROBLEM
i have written here http://nowardev.wordpress.com/2012/04/06/how-to-share-files-with-samba-under-kde-kubuntu-timeout-error-and-ect/

aand as you can see here dolphin can't load samba folders or the workgroup , with a general error "Timeout on server workgroup"

http://nowardev.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/snapshot21.jpg

you can try to share folders with kubuntu but you can't see them without these packages

sudo apt-get install samba kdenetwork-filesharing libpam-winbind winbind

after that you still can't see samba folders you need to edit

kdesudo kate /etc/nsswitch.conf

and put wins before dns as you can see here

    hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] wins dns mdns4

and

sudo adduser $USER sambashare ; sudo smbd restart

PLEASE FIX THIS.

I did not manage to reproduce this bug. It works with in my machine using the defaults. Could you paste the output of `net usershare info` and permission of the the shared folder and its parents?

sudo apt-get remove winbind => try samba => doesn't work
