Nautilus smb: not working...


Hey all:

I'm running slackware-current, and can't seem to get smb browsing working in Nautilus. I think I remember that this used to work...I thought I just typed smb: and it listed all the computers in the workgroup near me. Should this even be working?

I can get it to work (sort of) from Konqueror, but it keeps prompting me for passwords...annoying.

aaarrrrggggghhhhh

Hey:

OK - I have a computer at work and a computer at home. I just installed Slackware-current on both, from an .iso I burned two days ago, from the slackware-current tree.

At home, smb: in Nautilus doesn't work.

At work, it does.


Arrrrrrrghh!

CUPS!

Hey all:

I figured this one out, with the help of the guys at Dropline. To get 'smb:///' working in nautilus, you need to have cups installed. Apparently this is a dependecy problem with the current build that they were also having.

Anyone know who I should forward bug reports to at Slackware?
