    Default Can't open documents on Samba share

    Hi,

    When I try and open MS Office documents on a Samba share from OpenOffice 3.1.1. I get a message:

    Code:
    You can only select local files
    Just wondering if anyone has seen this?

    Hi,

    Thanks for the guide... I followed that and it worked. Just added an entry to fstab. I didn't think I needed to even add an entry to fstab as you can browse to the share in Dolphin using the Network option, it seems to be only a viewer though. To use it properly with OpenOffice it looks like you have to mount it.

    Thanks for the tip!
