This is my first experience with Linux . I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 x64 Desktop , for the purpose of file sharing at home for starters .
I have followed this guide
I had got to page 4 ( File sharing)
I have stumbled at a hurdleAs soon as I enter 'cd /etc/samba' I get an error :we change our working directory to those of Samba, by typing cd /etc/samba which simply means Change Directory to /etc/samba.
I had googled the error and found someone with the same here:http://https://answers.launchpad.net...uestion/112878bash: cd/etc/samba: No such file or directory
On this latter link Jon (jcv) said on 2010-12-10:Within that link was some commands as follows :I had this issue and got it working with the help of this link.https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...ly/004520.html
sudo touch /etc/samba/smb.conf
sudo dpkg-reconfigure samba-common
sudo dpkg-reconfigure windbind
sudo apt-get -f install
I opened terminal and typed in all the commands - 1,2 & 4 actually done something , 3 returned an error which I cannot remember
Anyhow I returned ( In vain ) thinking this might have solved the issue . However I still get the error:I have tried re-installing samba , though I cannot seem to be able to change into its directory , as mentioned in the Bit-tech guide ( in above link)bash: cd /etc/samba: No such file or directory
I have since studied other guides and taken further steps , though , this guide seems most popular and many have referenced it on forums
