Can't access samba shares with Thunar

Hi all, hope this is in the right place!

I have recently tried to get samba working and I have set it up to share my home directories by default. It's almost there - I can see my samba share fine on a windows PC with all the relevant shared folders, but if I try and access it on an Arch PC with Thunar I can see the group and the computer and the share inside it, but clicking on the share gives me "Failed to open 'home' - Failed to mount Windows share".

This is the contents of my smb.conf:

-------------------
[global]
workgroup = SAMBA
netbios name = sambashare
server string = %h server (Samba, Arch)
dns proxy = no
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000

name resolve order = bcast homst lmhosts wins

security = user
encrypt passwords = true
passdb backend = tdbsam
obey pam restrictions = yes
map to guest = bad user


[home]
writable = yes
path = /home/me
public = yes
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
guest account = nobody
browsable = yes
-------------------

If i run smbtree on a client computer I can see the share.

Can anyone shed some light? Can't find anything about this existing...

Cheers!

Re: Can't access samba shares with Thunar

Did you try to mount it manually? In thunar  ctl+l then entering the share location (smb://<ip address>/share)

Re: Can't access samba shares with Thunar

Is ntfs-3g needed for windows drives via samba? What about gvfs-smb for thunar?

@shulamy: Sorry, not sure what you mean.

Re: Can't access samba shares with Thunar

workgroup = SAMBA  is not the default in windows

so you have to change it in windows,

or change it in smb.conf to the correct one.

Re: Can't access samba shares with Thunar

But I'm doing Linux-to-linux sharing? There is no Windows PC involved; I don't understand what you mean.

Re: Can't access samba shares with Thunar

Have you read the original post? Because I still want Windows PCs to be able to access my share; they can, all other windows PCs on the network can see my share and browse what is in it fine. That part is working. But my other Linux PC cannot, and THAT is where I am having the problem.

Re: Can't access samba shares with Thunar

did you try to run thunar as root

just to see if it's permission problem?
