[SOLVED] LAN browsing with pyNeighborhood
« on: June 23, 2007, 04:29:23 pm »

I am trying to browse to my windows machine on my LAN with pyNeighborhood. I can see the other machine, and the shares on it, but I can't mount them. I highlite the shared entry, right-click / mount / SMB and "failed to mount" always shows.

What can I do to mount the LAN workgroup shares shown in pyNeighborhood?

How do I check and see if my samba client is running? Any suggestions?

You are asking one the same questions from the pyneighborhood site;

Quote
There are a couple of things to do:

1. Check that you have write privileges to the mount directory listed in Preferences-->General. By default, it is /mnt/lan. A simple test is to change this to your home directory ("/home/andreas" or whatever it is called) and see if this makes things work.

2. If that doesn't help, have a look in the pyNeighborhood.log file in the ~/.pyNeighborhood directory.

Search and you shall find.

Ugh! I just found out the solution in google at ubuntu: "Apparently pyNeighborhood needs midnight commander (mc) installed. {blah-blah} After installing it I can now see, and browse my smb shares without problem."

My bad. Should I delete the original post?

No - it's a good thing that you posted the solution so that others who want to use pyNeighborhood to browse their LAN's will know what to do if they run into a problem. ;-)

Cheers,
