I have a shared drive on my windows 8 pc, let's say the address is \\Blabla\Bla the permissions are set so that everyone on my network can edit and read, i am able to access this folder via my mobile phone in ES File Explorer, and also from another windows machine. But whenever i try to access it via the file manager in lubuntu it keeps asking for credentials. I have tried entering everything but without success, also i have tried to access the shared drive via my IPv4 which i looked up in windows via ipconfig but the result is the same. I have googled this but have found no solution.
I have installed all the packets listed in posts but the weird thing is Samba will not even open up for me, when i click on it it gives me the window to enter my password and it accepts it but nothing happens after that.
Edit: i have tried entering my linux username and password combo first, then my windows username and password combo, after that i created a new user on lubuntu with the exact same credentials as my windows account but still no luck. The packets i have installed are: * samba * system-config-samba * gvfs-bin * gvfs-backends
Also there is no login required to access this share.
Edit2: i have used the guide provided here.
