View Full Version : [ubuntu] Not able to Open OOo File from SMB network

February 4th, 2009, 07:50 AM

I am new linux user. I am using ubuntu 8.04 Hardy system at my office. We are using LAN wired network. When I started using ubuntu on network I was able to open files on network folder with read-write access.

Before two days my ubuntu system get crashed due to M/B fault; now I am using another standby system with same configuration and Ubuntu OS. Now I am able to access the SMB network as the other machined are WinXP but not able open openoffice file directly on network. I am copying that file on my desk, modifying and then pasting it again on that network pc/folder.

Please suggest any solution for this.
Second problem:

If there is one shared excel file on Windows XP system; and I am accessing that file simultanously with others then no one able gat read-write access to that file. (I am using ubuntu n OO0 2.4 and others are on WinXP)
