--- Comment #2 from Marc Chamberlin <marc@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> ---
(In reply to Noel Power from comment #1)
There really is a lack of detail here about how this bug is produced (and
the environment to trigger it)

Not by intent, one never knows what additional info will be needed by the
developers to solve a bug. I just wait until I am asked... Wouldn't it be nice
if one could go to a tool like the KDE System Info or YaST2 and simply have it
export all such system info to a file that could be included in a bug report?
Just saying...


+ What is the desktop are you using, you mention Dolphin so I suspect KDE
(but that is not necessarily so) ?

On both my laptop and the desktop systems -

OpenSuSE Leap 42.2

KDE Plasma Version 5.8.3
KDE Frameworks Version 5.26.0
Qt Version 5.6.1
Kernel Version 4.4.36-8
OS Type 64-bit


+ How is the share exposed?
is is mounted?
or connected somehow from the system ? (e.g. like in gnome the files app
can hold a connection to the smb share that is accessible to client
applications like thunderbird etc.)


Not really sure what is being asked here. On my desktop, which is where I was
trying to store an email attachment from Thunderbird that was running on my
laptop, I had simply used YaST2 to define a Samba share to be exposed on my
SOHO network. The pertinent sections of the smb.conf file are -

[global]
workgroup = CHAMBERLIN
passdb backend = smbpasswd
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
printcap cache time = 750
cups options = raw
map to guest = Bad User
logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
logon drive = P:
usershare allow guests = Yes
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c Machine -d /var/lib/nobody
-s /bin/false %m$
domain logons = No
domain master = yes
netbios name = Bigbang
security = user
wins support = No
usershare max shares = 100
local master = Yes
preferred master = auto

[homedirs]
available = Yes
browseable = Yes
comment = User Home Directories
hide dot files = No
inherit acls = Yes
path = /home
read only = No

/home is mounted on my desktop (Bigbang), shown in /etc/fstab as

UUID=bb3a7d35-cdfb-464b-9c4f-2b562e13d7d7 /home ext3
defaults 1 2

When I tried to save the attachment, to my home dir on my desktop I was asked
for my name and password, which I gave and it was accepted.

+ what version of samba is running?

4.4.2-9.1-x86_64

+ how is the samba setup, is the file share system a standalone server or
are the systems involved part of a windows domain or.... ?

I don't know how to answer this, my guess is I am using standalone servers
since I don't have a clue about using "windows domain" and what that is... This
is on my home SOHO network with a mix of Windows and OpenSuSE systems on my
network. Nothing sophisticated... Hopefully the info from my smb.conf file will
answer your question.

+ is there any output from thunderbird e.g. if you run it from the console


Nothing that makes any sense, but of interesting note, when I run Thunderbird
from the console I did get a slightly different behavior. When selecting which
computer on my network to store the attachment to, I was not shown, nor was I
able to find a way to specify, the desktop system (Bigbang in this case) that I
wanted to store the attachment to. I was shown other systems (not all) on my
network however, so I tried to save the attachment to one of them that is also
running OpenSuSE. Got the same response, i.e. "You can only select local
files". Here is what output I got -

marc@marcslaptop:~> thunderbird

"

Note: I had no trouble saving an attachement from thunderbird from one leap
422 system (fully updated) to another leap 4.22 system (again fully updated)
with both systems running gnome (and the file share connected via the
'Files' application) The samba system in this case was just setup as a
default file server (with default workgroup 'WORKGROUP)

please provide more information

I tried to be as thorough as I could in giving (probably too much) info.
HTHs...
