View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trouble Creating Share

July 26th, 2010, 04:36 PM
Hi there,

I'm having issues creating a share with 10.04 - but those I'll try and sort out by myself, as soon as some one can help me out and tell me how Ubuntu creates samba shares these days?

On a test machine I can create shares, but am having some permission issues. I go to the smb.conf file but can't find the created share? Where does Ubuntu store the new config file for creating samba shares? I assume I can just override by creating a share by hand in the smb.conf file like a always do, but I'd rather try and work with, rather than against 10.04.

Can some one please help me confirm that I'm not going nuts? :)

If you righclick on a folder and share it so that Windows machines on the network can see it - is that share recorded in the smb.conf file? If yes, please let me know, if no, then do you have any idea where?

Thanks for any replies,
