Glad to hear.
This is wrong:
name resolve order = lmhosts hosts wins bcastit should be like this:
name resolve order = bcast host lmhosts wins
That's all the info we have to go on, so ohter things might be...
And if it's an external drive, it's 99% sure to have a windows format, fat32 or ntfs, so check that it's mounted drwxrwxrwx to allow guests to write to it over the network.
I'm delighted by your happiness
Could be this is the problem:
Is it set up to require 2008 server authentication and access?
Three things you might check:
the workgroup names are the same on all machines
sudo /etc/init.d/samba statusand see if you get a response that smbd and nmbd are running
run this command:
ls -l /var/lib/samba/usersharesall the shares created in Nautilus will be listed by that command. Suppose one of them is "billymusic". To get the path for the share called...
Phil Hansen: be wary of this advice. It does not change ownership IIRC.
And -- regarding this:
Follow ukripper's advice to discover the mount directory (or just use the command 'df -Th')
If it's mounted in directory "mount_dir" at /path_to/mount_dir, run this command:
sudo chown phil:phil /path_to/mount_dirand it will change ownership to user=phil, group=phil.
That's for ext3.
Just for your interest: "public = yes" is a duplicate of "guest ok = yes".
Guests should be able to mount because access for guests is allowed. -- unless there's a problem in the [global] stanza....
Certainly your problem is the samba naming daemon nmbd. I haven't installed Karmic. You should report this as a bug. Under "Processes" surely there's something about file sharing or network sharing?...
Well the worst thing is that nmbd isn't working, So check in System --> Administration --> Services that samba is turned on (file sharing it's called iirc).
If it is already on, then check that...
Just want to check some things you said in yr bug dialogue & post #3. Can you post here the results of these commands:
ls -l /var/lib/samba/usershares
sudo ufw status
You can only add users who pre-exist as Ubuntu users, was that it?
Because I get paid to use it and my kdz need to be educated
If you can finger the specific problem, we can give focused advice.
Meanwhile, while you're buying a replacement screen:P, these might be worth a read:

You can test that partition like this:
make a folder to test it in:
sudo mkdir /mnt/sda9
test mount it:
ntfs-3g /dev/sda9 /mnt/sda9
There might be an error about the dirty bit being set....
Hard to get the mind around all those things.
How about you define a user for ease of admin of the media share, any name you like, e.g. "admin". Create the Linux user admin.
Chown the directory...
Do you mean if open Nautilus and click Computer on the top bar and select a drive icon -- or what do you mean?
I looked at the list of 22 (?) partitions from fdisk: which one is causing you grief?
Can you post the results of this command: testparm -s
That will give us a condensed look at your configuration file.
Please point out which [stanza] pertains to the "media share".
I also need...
The problem likely lies in the disparity between:
the owner and group for the file update.txt (which is consulting+consulting)
the owner and group for a user accessing the file (which is...
And therein lies the issue. Remember this:
You have group=matthew, owner=server
If zypper throws you, try the GUI at Yast --> Software --> Softyware management
If you want a fat32 drive to mount at startup, put a line defining the mount in the file fstab (located at /etc/fstab). Here's an example of syntax:
UUID=AD74-85CA /path_to/mount_point vfat...
In vista, enable netbios over tcpip
In Kubuntu, temporarily disable the Ubuntu firewall with this command:
