Re: Hardy, Nautilus and browsing networks

I just ran into this here at work. Something's wonky with authentication on Shared Windows network server drives. You appear to connect OK to the server, but no directories appear in the Nautilus pane.

I got the subdirectories to appear by appending the name of a known directory to the server name in the Location: field.

- Connect to a server (smb://ufileserver/ )
- Now, edit the Location: field to append the name of a directory (smb://ufileserver/Foo/ )
- you should get a "allow access to keyring" pop-up. Answer "Allow always"
- Voila! The files will appear and the network server will be mounted in the "Tree" pane.

At least, that's how it worked for me. There's a bug been filed on this...lots of people reporting it.

My experience is on a Dell Precision, upgraded from 7.10, so I already had entries in the keyring. Don't know what would happen if you were using a completely new install.

How did the Friday thing go? and
What did you say?
I installed Myth on a 2GHZ pc that was given to me but haven't purchased and installed a card yet. It's not even running at this second, but it seems to run fine. Photo viewer app seems good, but haven't yet pushed into video and audio.

Info about Mythbuntu is sketchy at best. I've visited the wiki and other areas, enough to get it installed and working, but info is generally hard to come by. I really had to look hard for example, to discover the default shortcut keys, stuff like that.

Anyway, I'm curious as to your take on Myth.

It might sound silly but I like the forced organization, haha. I actually use 'organization' now.



Hey, thanks! I finally got around to it :P
