I launch Krunner and type smb:// to connect to my Samba share. Then Dolphin opens and "share" folder appears (share is the name of my samba share) When I click on the share folder, instead of getting the popup dialog to enter my samba username and password, A red bar appears in dolphin that reads " Internal Error Please send a full bug report at http://bugs.kde.org Unknown error condition in stat: File exists: 
I am running Plasma 5.11.1 , dolphin 17.08.2 on arch linux . Screen shot is attached

Does this start to work if you remove one of the slashes from the URL? i.e. if you try smb:/

If so, this is likely fixed by the following patch, which should be committed soon: https://phabricator.kde.org/D8141

If not... then darn. :)

I am still getting the same error by just trying smb:/ ...darn =(
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2017-10-20 16:57:55 UTC
Darn is right! Is this a password-protected Samba share, and do you have libsmbclient 4.7? If so, then this is a duplicate of https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=385708, which is ultimately caused by a regression in Samba itself (but we should work around it or handle it better).
Comment 4 unnamedpoet 2017-10-20 17:09:00 UTC
Yes, I have smbclient 4.7 installed, thanks for the info

Definitely a duplicate of Bug 385708, then. If you're handy with compiling software, the patch in that bug report works. We're working on getting it integrated, and also seeing about Samba itself.
