This is about a bug in this piece of software, and not about finding another piece of software to take its place. wsdd, as you proposed, is not included by default in Ubuntu.
The point of seeking a fix for this issue is so that the UX, out of the box, is better than it is now. Users should not have to install another tool to get this basic functionality working. I would like to remind those reading that this issue was posted ALMOST FOUR YEARS ago. And the "temporary workaround" is to kill the process so it reinitalises. Can we PLEASE get this fixed already?!?!?!? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to a duplicate bug report (1881780). https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1828107 Title: gvfs can't list shares from smb servers that disabled SMB1 To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/gvfs/+bug/1828107/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
