  1. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    It appears you should have spend more then 5 nanoseconds thinking about it.
    As if I didn't already try to right click a folder, as shown in your picture.

    As I mentioned, I could not simply share...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    Perhaps your right, I am stating something that I do not know for sure is a FACT for myself. I only stated what seems to be listed and posted as general knowledge across google and ubuntu.

    In fact...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    According to bab1 and various other posts NO this does not work (unless you are logging in with the same user) otherwise samba does not allow permissions to read/write/execute.

    Which means YES you...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    Ok

    I want to say everything is working but as soon as I start using the folder for various things; and counting on it to be there, then it's gone.

    I just don't see the folder on the network...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    You want to add the linux/samba user to the same machine that is the samba server right ? Not just a samba user/client to another machine ?

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I actually switched but then switched back to dual booting because I play games too.

    Unfortunately some games I play just won't play on linux I wish they did.
    Thinks are certainly getting better...

    Ubuntu 15.04 desktop sharing ? What is it and how to use it ?

  8. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    Well the password was not the same. However, I have changed them now so that each host user has a samba password that matches their user login password.

    Now remote hosts can also access MyTest...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    Yes, at this point I can access the MyTest folder with my user, and Samba password
  10. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    Please look at post #44
    I did not see any instructions to add any Samba users/passwords.

    I'm confused about how to apply the terms you outlined for a local host on the host, while using samba...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    OK, so the user/pass does not seem to allow any of my machines to access the samba share.

    I don't understand what you mean by "John has an account" and that this would also be the samba user and...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    Yes there are other computers on the network.
    I have not tried any other windows computers yet. Just the 1 other Ubuntu 15.04 computer so far and I can access the files and read/write from the...

    I cannot access the folder from the local machine nor my other ubuntu machine.
    I can see the folder but when I click on it I get the pop box asking for password.
    When I put in the password it will...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    Ok, so at this point only the (users group) of ubuntu can read/write to this folder via (local machine) ?

    And ubuntu users will only be added to the group if I ad them.

    Got it, thanks
  17. [ubuntu] Re: What is the point of sharing a folder if users can't simply share it ?

    Can you explain users group ownership ?

    ONLY users that I added to the users group right ?
    NOT just anyone that that logs into the network workgroup ?

    I guess I'm asking who can actually use...
