Permissions to see Samba and other shares
Having recently done a fedora install I was delighted to see that it found all network servers, Samba shares, NIS & NFS.
Unfortunately the default action will not allow me to open and write fles in these locations.
How do I correct this? [/img]file://home/ians/Screenshot-Eel.png[img]

You want to enable Windos machines to access shares on your linux machine?
Setup the samba.conf or smb.conf in the /etc directory and reboot the samba server. The location of the configuration file differs per distro.
But usualy it's /etc/samba and the file is named eiter samba.conf or smb.conf
Here is an example: :P
# Global parameters [global] workgroup = MYWORKGROUP netbios name = LINUX server string = My Linux Server security = SHARE encrypt passwords = Yes update encrypted = Yes log file = /var/log/samba.%m preferred master = False local master = No domain master = False lock dir = /var/tmp default service = homes [homes] comment = Home Directories read only = No browseable = No [public] path = /opt/public read only = No [printers] comment = All Printers path = /var/spool/samba printable = Yes browseable = No

problem is with the fedora client
The Samba set up is fine and windows clients can see and write to shares.
The Fedora box I have just set up can also see the shares but I get a dialogue box entitled "Can't Open Location" which says:
The default action can't open "filename" because it can't access files at "smb" locations. No other actions are available to view this file. If you copy this file onto your computer, you may be able to open it.
