I wanted to reconfigure an old PC to be a music server connected to our HIFI. It took 3 days and 7 attempts to successfully install 18.04 due to an issue with installing on PC with multiple drives. It refused to correctly write the GRUB boot loader to the same partition it itself installed Ubuntu to. I had to strip out all the drives to get round the problem to now discover I cannot connect to the Music media on my main Windows 10 PC due to this SMB issue. I got round it by the connect to server option and bookmark option but Kodi cannot see the share or index the Music. Now I'm off to Kodi support.
Using Ubuntu since 2008 it seem that every release for me has bugs affecting core features such as USB Wireless card support, Sound, DVD burning software and display adapter support. I cannot understand how the platform can be released with such fundamental feature broken. No problem for those who are expert but for mass use users stuffing around for hours on forums searching out solutions is not a viable option. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Desktop Bugs, which is subscribed to gvfs in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1767454 Title: "Other Locations" does not automatically find Samba servers in Ubuntu 18.04 To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/dolphin/+bug/1767454/+subscriptions -- desktop-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/desktop-bugs
