Default The Samba issue

Ever since Lucid version (and now Maverick) I simply cannot run samba
properly. I've installed Samba, Samba4, smbclient, everything's Ok,
except that I can't get Samba to work. It doesn't recognize other
machines (Linux and Windows) on the same network and shows no computers
on the workgroup.

It won't open the system menu samba icon (it bounces for a while, then
nothing) and won't start in the terminal neither.

Any ideas why?

Best regards,

Helder Terra

1. You really don't need samba4. It's an experimental package so
unless you intend to install it on a non-production box, to test it,
and to file bugs.

2. Your box seems to be a samba client and not a samba server. You
therefore don't need to install samba.

3. You may or may not need smbclient (it provides command-line samba
client executables that I find useful for troubleshooting).

4. Do you have samba-common and samba-common-bin installed?

I would also install smb4k as that seems to "pull in" a few things that
smb client needs to work well in Dolphin.

Having said that, something is a bit fishy with samba in 10.10, I also
get odd behaviour where it will scan some windows networks and not
others etc. Sometimes have to use ip address of a server to scan it etc.
