Re: File Sharing Between Two Ubuntu Laptops
Quick question-do you want the files to be synchronized between computers? If so, just setup Ubuntu One to automatically keep the contents of certain folders the same. Much easier than using Samba, which would make for a lengthy post. It works on Ubuntu and Windows, and you get 5 GB of storage space for free.
If you just want to be able to access the contents of certain folders, but don't care if they are exactly the same or have nothing in common, you will need to use Samba.
Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.
