After upgrading to Ubuntu 20.04 I couldn't connect to the samba share.

I managed to fix it by adding, client min protocol = NT1

into, /etc/samba/smb.conf

However now all the files are shown as folder in Gnome Files.

Please help.

  • What do you mean by "all the files are shown as folder in Gnome Files"? Please elaborate with more specific information, such as the output of the command used to list files, or info about the application you are using, such as a screenshot. – Nmath Apr 29 at 2:02
  • I have exactly the same issue. @Nmath if you browse to the share with Nautilus, it shows the Folder icon for files, and also treats them that way when sorting. If you try to open the files it tries to open a folder instead (it shows a deeper level in the treeview) and pops the error "This location could not be displayed: <filename> could not be found. Perhaps it has recently been deleted". This happens for all files. From what I read elsewhere on AskUbuntu, it might be a bug in samba. – Opifex May 1 at 23:04

Looks like it's a confirmed bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/samba/+bug/1872476

It's already been fixed, but is not included in the current stable release yet. I you want to apply the patches yourself in the meantime, you can find them here:

  • thanks ! Note: In the first link, the bug author provides a ppa and the steps for a fix without having to apply patches manually. Did it and it works now – BiAiB May 18 at 12:49

I had to start by installing Samba. I used this tutorial: click here

Then I had to add this line "client min protocol = CORE"

to the [global] section of my /etc/samba/smb.conf file. I fount that direction here

I hope that helps.
