Bug Reports

An error occurs when navigating to a share from a networked computer that requires a username and password in File Manager "Nemo".

Bug report typeNon-fatal bug
Program affectedProject Nelson (v1.0 Build 019 and v1.0 Build 020)

When navigating to a share that requires a username and password, the following error occurs:

Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

This does not affect users that have already entered their username and password for that share (e.g. via Windows Explorer).

Steps to reproduce
  1. Launch File Manager "Nemo".
  2. Navigate to a password-protected share for which you have not entered your password.
WorkaroundAfter clicking Continue, right-click on a blank portion of the window and select Open folder in Explorer from the context menu that appears. Windows Explorer will prompt you to enter your username and password for the share. After you have entered the correct username and password in Explorer, you should be able to access the share in Nemo.
StatusWILL_FIX in v1.0 Build 021.
Developer's commentsPlan to fix this in the next build.
