Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I installed 12.10 on a laptop the other day. Install went fine but I have been trying for the past 2 days to get connected to a share on my Windows 7 box. I try getting there using the add server option from the tool bar and also by browsing the machine through the home folder network interface and both of which ultimately return the same error "unable to retrieve the share list". I've tried the following things so far with no luck

Samba smbtree No output; failed to retrieve share list
