Thats what I figure too. However this is obviously very complicated stuff..

LAN Browser doesn't work for me at all.

Logically I would expect smb browsing to show the computers in the current 
workgroup via the url smb://

This doesn't work for me either.

I can browse through a computers shares, once i tell konquerer which computer 
to go to like this:


I can copy files from all shares to local directories and I can copy from my 
system to write enabled shares.

However I experience several inconviniences (bugs):

Most files get the executable flag set even though they are just data files 
like pictures or music.

Sometimes I get an error like "destination is write protected". This occurs at 
various illogical places, like after copying a file succesfully to a remote 
write enabled share. It can even occur when copying the other way which does 
not make sence at all.

This is something else. That works fine for me.

Did you remember to reboot after installing libsmbclient (or at least log out 
and in again). That matters.

Anyway smb browsing seems to have a very low priority in the kde project, 
which I think is sad because for me it is an essential feature.
