I am using Xubuntu (UserOS Home Server 8.04) to share files with Windows. It doesn't let me write to the disk through a Windows computer. These are the steps I have taken to do this. Applications > System > Shared Folders. I created the folder I want to share in /home/username/share where share is the folder that I want shared in Windows. Then I opened the containing folder > Properties > Permissions Tab> Others: Read & Write > Recursive? Yes. If Others is set to none, I can't access the folder through Windows. If it is read only, I can only read the disk, just like what situation I am in if I select Read & Write. A link to the snapshot of the properties is at the bottom of the post. I don't seem to be able to get this to work. I have followed the instructions in the October issue of PC User but it doesn't work. Any ideas?
