I'm new to Linux and I'm trying Xubuntu 6.0.6. Very nice.
Although, I can't find how to connect to another computer (tcp/ip network). I know the network is OK (I can run a ssh in the terminal with computers and network printer and I have access to the Net). But I don't know where I have to go to display the shared computers and files (in Kubuntu, Konqueror let you mount the shared volumes).
Perhaps, this issue is related with another one: I'm unable to configure the printer (a network HP officejet) because it doesn't appear in the Print Manager. And even with CUPS (with the web interface), I can't recognize it (I try with IP adress, with the mDNS name, nothing). The situation is funny because I can initiate a ftp session and print through it (to open the ftp session, I just have to ask in the shell ftp xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx).
Does somebody have an idea!
What file manager are you using?
(If it's Xffm, I think you must be able to see the shares)

How about if your using Thunar?
I installed XFCE over KUbuntu and I had a 'Connect to...' menu in Thunar. Since then I've flattened my laptop and re-installed using the XUbuntu distro and the 'Connect to...' menu isn't there any more. Does anyone have a clue how to put one back?

Dead Link? Sorry.
Here is the short version: You have to use nautilus to browse the network but you have to prevent it from stealing your desktop by starting it from a terminal with
