I (or actually my brother who would like to use Gcmd) only connect(s) to
external samba shares. To debug, I sucessfully enabled a Samba server on
my Fedora 25 PC (runnig GNOME) doing the following:

sudo dnf install samba samba-client
## samba user and password is different frum unix user / password -- set
it explicitly:
sudo smbpasswd -a thomas

# create samba share
mkdir samba-test-share
# let SELinux not deny permissions
chcon -R -t samba_share_t samba-test-share/
# add the following lines to /etc/samba/smb.conf:

        guest ok = yes
        read only = no

# restart samba:
sudo systemctl restart smb

After this, I could access (and write to) this testshare using Files aka
nautilus, and also thunar by going to the address
"smb://localhost/testshare". It did not work with Gcmd.
Only typing smb://localhost somehow didn't work that well in neither
file manager.

Hope this helps.
