    Unable to configure samba

    I installed samba in an attempt to share my printer with other PCs (not running Ubuntu) on my home network. I wan to edit /etc/samba/smb.conf but I can not as it is read only.

    I tried 'chmod +w /etc/samba/smb/conf' but received "Operation not permitted". How do I gain access to edit files not in my home directory tree?

    You can edit that file by launching gedit with root permissions. Open a terminal (or hit F2) and run the command:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
