    Excellent guide!

    I might make one suggestion, going back to the original post's desired goals. I would file a bug over at bugs.kde.org as a bug against Dolphin. I would also reference this tread in said bug report. The reasoning is that you had absolutely no feedback from within Dolphin as to what was needed and why your attempted connections were failing. Why have the Share tab in Dolphin at all? I can't think of any scenario without quite a bit of legwork up front that this would work from within Dolphin. And by the time one would get it to work at all, the share tab in Dolphin is pointless, because you've already done it by editing files and using the CLI, which renders this function in Dolphin utterly pointless to begin with...

    We really do need easier file / folder sharing in Kubuntu. Without dropping to a CLI. For the truly paranoid, maybe there could be warnings about sharing files blah blah blah. Just my 2 cents. Again, this thread was a great read and your diligence in attacking this problem is inspiring.

    Cheers.

    Wow, good work and detailed post! Well done both.

    One problem you will probably find, you keep hearing and file permissions ownership. There are dozens of ways to deal with, and depends mainly on whether you are the only user of your system.

    you can view samba shares directly in dolphin by using smb:/<ip or host name> in the path bar.
