Hi All, following a large update a few days ago I am now unable to access my NAS from within Thunar.
I had previously had problems which were solved by following this post:
and downgrading libwbclient and smbclient and putting them into the ignorepkg line in pacman.conf.
However the update a few days ago caused problems. One of the packages to be updated was gvs-smb. In order to do this libwbclient had to be replaced by an updated /etc/smbclient. Knowing the problems that I had had previously, when asked to replace libwbclient I selected No. This caused the update to abort.
So, I repeated the update and this time selected Yes. Once the update was completed I found that I had lost NAS access from Thunar. I then tried to downgrade smbclient again but was informed that libwbclient was required by the replacement, so, I tried to reinstall libwbclient. Unfortunately this bought up a warning that libwbclient would break smbclient which in turn would break gvs-smb. So I am back at square one.
Has anyone else experienced this and if so does anyone know if there is a work around please?
Dont think so. when i go into thunar and select browse network three results appear, Technicolor - which is my router, venus - which is my NAS, and windows network. Clicking on any brings up a popup with the error message 'failed to mount windows share:software caused connection abort.
