Emulator Issues #12221
Paths on linux using smb don't work
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
When adding a game folder, if the path is using the smb protocol (smb://nas/wiigames for example) it won't list any games.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Using KDE Plasma & the KDE's default dolphin filebrowser (different program than this dolphin), select a folder on a smb share:
Config -> paths -> add -> select a folder on a smb share
resulting bath will be smb://nas/wiigames or something similar
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)
Arch Linux, KDE Plasma 5.19.4, kernel 5.7.12

Yeah this isn't really a bug, we just don't support the SMB protocol nor have any plans to. You need to mount your SMB share as a normal filesystem using cifs. KDialog is kinda stupid for allowing that to be selected when we specifically requested a directory.
Thanks for the reply!
SMB & others (ftp, sftp, Nfs) could all be supported using KIO - Would you consider implementing it, or accepting a PR that adds support?
