• Samba connection to DLink NAS not Loading


    Hi,

    I have a small DLink NAS (DNS-320L) which normally is accessible under ‘Network’ in Dolphin. After trying to set up samba I can see the DLink in dolphin but it never loads. The NAS is fine as I can access it via my Ubuntu laptop.
    The non-result in Dolphin:

    Thanks for that.
    It doesn’t really fix my samba issue but the NAS now mounts as a drive which is probably better in this case.
    :-)

  • Can you check if gvfs-smb is installed?

  • @Arup-Roy-Chowdhury
    gvfs-smb is installed. I’ll try again when I get home from work to see if there’s any change, or I’ve missed something.

  • @Arup-Roy-Chowdhury
    Hi, just received an update to Plasma 5.7 and the samba problem is solved.
    Thanks for your help :-)
