Using Nautilus in Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), and in 'other places' networking won't show. I have three NAS servers which refuse to show.

They will show in Windows and Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus), but all my machines running 16.10 won't show them. As a workaround I have removed Nautilus and installed Nemo as a file manager, and I can now access all my network shares with no issue. This to me points to an issue in Nautilus 3.20.

I reverted back to Nautilus to try some more. I can see all my shares now, however it hangs on opening any shared folder at the 'Opening [folder name]' 'You can stop this operation by clicking cancel'. Nemo opened them all instantly, but it results in issues with desktop manipulation! In a terminal Nautilus gives the following outputs:

(nautilus:5038): Glib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_dbus_interface_skeleton_unexport: assertion 'interface_->priv->connections !=NULL' failed . The line is down twice.

  • If you start nautilus in a terminal and perform that action, is there any debug output in the terminal? – Kyle H Dec 26 '16 at 12:39
