View Full Version : [ubuntu] User Groups Nightmare

May 4th, 2013, 10:41 AM
I have three computers on a network running Ubuntu.

I want to run my Raspberry Pi as part of the network but without monitor. I just want it to serve some media and upload files to dropbox.

Trying to get Samba to allow WRITE permissions is becoming a nighmare.

I understand that Samba can only allow permissions that are set in Linux so it can reduce permissions on the Linux setting but not increase them.

OK, so far I get that.

I need to be able to WRITE to the Pi's system files using Samba but am losing myself as to if I need to join or create a group or what.

The main files in the pi show as owned by ROOT although the default user is pi

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
