• cannot access windows shares

    Hi all,

    Installed Antergos Gnome and cannot access windows shares via smb://. Nautilus error: “Failed to retrieve shae list from server: Invalid argument”

    I searched online but instructions are irrelevant/outdated - mosly talking about how to make my antergos folders shared.

    I am a long time Ubuntu user.

    Thank you in advance for any help. I am baffled - this should work out of the box.


  • Open Nautilus.
    From the File menu, select Connect to Server…
    In the Service type: drop-down box, choose Windows share.
    In the Server: field, enter the name of your computer.
    Click Connect.

    Is this what you are doing ?
