View Full Version : [ubuntu] Viewing/Sharing files on WIndows 7

May 4th, 2011, 03:26 AM
I've done some searching and I can't seem to find any info on this.
And I know this is probably one of the most commonly asked questions so it makes me feel like a complete idiot for not finding anything, lol.

I want to be able to grab music, pictures and movies from my Windows 7 desktop onto my 11.04 Laptop. My laptop is connected to the network wirelessly. And I really have no idea where to start. I have enabled file/print sharing in W7 and installed Samba on this machine and that is as far as I have gotten. I really have no idea where to even begin.

If there is a nice page or how-to that someone can link to me, that would be perfect. I'll keep this thread open in case I run into problems.

If I get it all worked out I will mark this thread as solved and post a reply in regards to how I got it all working.

Thanks to everyone in advance!
