Hi marwendoukh, I had the same problem that you and fix this with this post in reddit: .

What you need to do is reinstall libwbclient with "sudo dnf reinstall libwbclient".

That is a known bug, since at least Fedora 21. See information in links below, including the bugtracker.

To fix it, reinstall libwbclient by running

$ sudo dnf reinstall libwbclient from a terminal

I had the same problem. It turns out two versions of libwbclient were installed because of an upgrade malfunction (the computer was upgraded from Fedora 24 to 26). I found this out by typing

dnf info libwbclient

The command

sudo dnf remove libwbclient-2\:4.4.14-0.fc24

removed the old package which nothing important actually depended on.

I then had to run

sudo rpm --rebuilddb

to rebuild the package database. After that, gnome-control-center started right up. :)

You can do this :

[root] # strace -o logfile gnome-control-center
gnome-control-center: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root] # view logfile  # here you search the path of the missing access -> /usr/lib64/samba/  for me
[root] # ln -s /usr/lib64/samba/wbclient/ /usr/lib64/samba/ 
[root] # exit

Downgrading 'libwbclient,x86_64, samba-client.x86_64, samba-common.noarch' solved the issue for me.

I had the same issue after installing Fedora 24 and installing a few packages from other repositories (without updating the system first, might be an explanation).

I solved it by removing the packages that conflicted. For example, to solve :

  file /usr/share/gcc-5.1.1/python/libstdcxx/v6/ from install of libstdc++-5.1.1-4.fc22.i686 conflicts with file from package libstdc++-5.1.1-1.fc22.x86_64

I removed libstdc++-5.1.1-1.fc22.x86_64 using the following command as root :

 dnf remove libstdc++-5.1.1-1.fc22.x86_64

Hope that helps !
