“Error: Failed to mount Windows share” after upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10

It is a tragedy after upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10 that settings are changed. Today when I want to connect to some samba share with my existing Bookmark, I got “Error: Failed to mount Windows share” in Nautilus. After surveying Q&A and doing check, I found:

  1. The mounting point changed from ~/.gvfs (or /media?) to /run/user/{username}.
  2. The existing bookmark in Nautilus had been altered to add duplicated folder string, e.g.
    smb://10.1.10.1/share -> smb://10.1.10.1/share/share/

where the second point is the real cause. Maybe it is an individual case and mine only. However, if you encounter the same error, maybe this can help. Enjoy it. 🙂
