i have been pulling my hair out on this one and would appreciate any help.

i have set up a kubuntu server (12.04) with samba shares on a lan.

my issue is that the shares are not accessible when i start the server up (in both text or gui mode). the shared folders show up when i login in gui mode only and i can access the files. when i login in text mode - nothing happens.

i checked the status of nmbd and smbd while in both modes and they are both running fine.

for the shares to be usable on lan - i HAVE to login in gui-mode and then everything works fine.

does this have anything to do with konqueror as i have modified some shares with that as well as the samba gui tool. i even tried ajenti. i have a feeling that messing around with multiple tools might have something to do with this issue.
