I've recently upgraded to GNOME 2.8.2 on Debian. I don't know for sure if that's when the problem began, but it was after that that I noticed it the first time.
When I click on the desktop Computer -> Network -> Windows Network, I get the message: '"smb:///" is not a valid location. Please check the spelling and try again.'
I know I have samba set up correctly, because I can browse the network with xffm or smbtree or smbclient. Typing 'nautilus smb://username
assword@hostname/sharename' doesn't help either. It almost looks like nautilus does not recognize the smb scheme. Other protocols work normally btw (sftp).
I've got libgnome-vfs-0 and libgnome-vfs-common installed. I've tried installing gnome-vfs-extra's, but that didn't work, presumably because it's for GNOME 1.x.
If anyone could help me out, I would be much obliged.
