Smb4K is a SMB and CIFS (Windows) share browser for KDE.

Smb4k uses the Samba software suite to access the SMB and CIFS shares of the local network neighborhood.

Its purpose is to provide a program that's easy to use and has as many features as possible.

Here are some key features of "Smb4k":
Scanning for (active) workgroups, hosts, and shares
Mounting and unmounting of SMB and CIFS shares, including unmounting all shares at once
Access to the files of a mounted SMB or CIFS share using Konqueror
Auto-detection of external mounts/unmounts
Remounting of recently used shares on program start
Miscellaneous infos about the mounted SMB and CIFS shares
Network search
WINS server support
Preview of shares
Selectable look-up and search methods
Default login
Ability to execute mount and umount SUID root (using super or sudo)
Special handling of homes shares
Ability to bookmark favorite shares
System tray icon
Support of advanced Samba options
Support of printer shares

What's New in This Release:
Fixed a serious bug in Smb4KFileIO that could cause a corrupted /etc/sudoers file if debug or error output was received via stderr while reading the file for subsequent processing.
Many thanks go to h-gent-o who reported this issue to the Ubuntu bug tracker and to Richard Johnson from the Ubuntu project who brought it to our attention (closes #9527).
