A bit before upgrading from 10.04 to 11.10, my Ubuntu desktop stopped allowing me to access my Windows share directories. I figured I'd upgrade to 11.10 and the problem would get fixed but no.
Whenever I click on a Windows network domain using Nautilus, the message:
" Unable to mount location - Failed to retrieve share list from server " pops up.
Where do I start troubleshooting this problem? I am getting desperate now :(
- I tried
sudo mount -t cifs //SomeMachine/SomeShare some_directoryand I get
mount error(115): Operation now in progress
- Strangely enough, I got a popup stating:
Could not display network:/// Error: Dbus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply ...
