Bug Description

Using up-to-date Hoary.

I have a Debian testing/unstable server running samba 3.0.10-1 and I am not able
to enter my "homes" folder. I do the following:

1. Go to Places->Network Servers->Windows Network
2. KAOS (computer name)->curodk (my workgroup name)->homes.

A dialog appears saying: "The folder contents could not be displayed. "homes"
couldn't be found. Perhaps it has recently been deleted."

On Warty I am able to enter the homes folder because an authentication dialog
appears which I can fill out with my username and password. After entering the
information my home folder appears.

I am using Hoary, fresh 20050309.2 install and I also do not see the
username/password dialog but I WAS able to access my windows xp sp2 machines
share, even w/o the l/p. And no the network name is NOT "WORKGROUP" I have my
own internal network and I am not using simple default values.

that works fine here. Can you do that and copy the log here:
- killall /usr/lib/gnome-vfs2/gnome-vfs-daemon &&
/usr/lib/gnome-vfs2/gnome-vfs-daemon
- try to browse the share

When I browse the share, the same error as in my original bug report appears.
There is no additional output in the terminal.

I am using Hoary with backports as a client with Debian Unstable as the SAMBA
server, and show the same symptoms.

I'm presented with an authentication dialogue for shares that aren't homes, but
not the homes share.
None of my Windows clients show any problems connecting to any share.

If I specify the username in the nautilus 'connect to server' dialogue I can
sometimes login. I've not been able to reproduce it in any way that's meaningful
to me, but I don't know that much about samba.

I'll be more than happy to help figure out this bug.

Hy from germany.

Did you store passwords ?
Clear all stored network passwords than try again.
Dialog will show up again.
It seems a bug with digital wallet not coming up before network password dialog.
May be just bad timing cause of configurations

Avoid storing in the wallet just store "for this session"

Can this be confirmed ?

Best Regards

Michael

I still have this error in Dapper. I had to kill the gnome-vfs-daemon and restart it to test for it because initially I did not see anything in Network Servers.

The error message is the same, ie. "The folder contents could not be displayed. "homes"
couldn't be found. Perhaps it has recently been deleted."

I tried the same with konqueror. It failed also.

However, I could add a new Network Share in konqueror and I could access my share using username and password.

I tried the same with Nautilus "Connect to Server...", entered what I felt like was necessary and got *NO* error message indicating that it failed.

Samba/Windows interop is seriously broken in Gnome.

I mark this bug as duplicate #14774
The problem is that security=user in /etc/samba/smb.conf
