Bug Description

The LO snap (version 5.4.2.2, currently in the candidate channel) silently fails to open files on samba shares. I'm not seeing related apparmor denials, and no error message, but files are not opened.

Not just the [snap] package. Version LibreOffice 5.4.2.2 40m0(Build:2) from standard ubuntu repositories. Also an issue with AFP shares.

The old fix of: sudo sed -i 's/X-GIO-NoFuse=true/#X-GIO-NoFuse=true/' /usr/share/applications/libreoffice*

from: https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/30497/solved-libreoffice-421ubuntu-1204-error-not-open-network-files/

does not work.

There seem to be lots of related bugs floating around for version 4 regarding GVFS etc etc but it is still as issue for me with version 5.x.x.x. Not sure of the versions it affects though, sorry. How does one use libreoffice with ubuntu in an actual workplace with this issue or is there another workaround that network admins know of?
