    Samba Ubuntu 12.04

    Hello,

    in a fresh installation of Ubuntu, always I open the Software Center and I install all the packets with the result "samba".
    I reboot and inmediately I can access to the shared folders of the other computers of the home network.
    But in 12.04... no. I can not see the Windows computers from Nautilus.

    Problem? How can I solve this? Any start point? I don't have much knowledge of networks in Linux...

    Many thanks!

    The "Ubuntu Software Centre" is more of an "app" like store than a package manager because it doesn't show you all available packages, like those related to Samba. The Samba packages you're looking for are still in the repositories and can be installed with apt(-get), aptitude, Synaptic, or whatever other package manager you want to use.

    I reboot and inmediately I can access to the shared folders of the other computers of the home network.
    There's a couple of interesting points about that statement:

    *** There's 2 parts to Samba: The server part and the client part. Ubuntu ships with the client part already installed so you shouldn't have to install anything to see the remote shares.

    *** If you literally installed everything labeled "samba" then you installed Samba4 ( experimental ) and Samba3. One conflicts with the other so I'm not sure what you have.

    At this time, all the packages "Samba" installed from Software Center are uninstalled (from Software Center too); and I can not "see" the other computers

    Yes, don't ever use gadmin-samba again for as long as you live.

    smb.conf is used by the Samba server but also the Samba client so my recommendation is to start over again with a coherent smb.conf:

    (1) Make sure the following file exists: /usr/share/samba/smb.conf

    (2) Make another backup of your current smb.conf
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.confMOD
    (3) Start with a fresh one:
    Code:
    sudo cp -a /usr/share/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/
    (4) Correct one mistake in the new one: Find the line:
    encrypt passwords = false
    and change it to:
    encrypt passwords = true
    And add one more line to the [global] section - right under the workgroup line:
    Code:
    name resolve order = bcast host lmhosts wins
    (5) Restart samba
    Code:
    sudo service nmbd restart
    sudo service smbd restart
    After you've done all that post the output of the following command:
    Code:
    smbtree

    After you've done all that post the output of the following command:
    Code:
    smbtree
    It ask me for password, I entered password and nothing happends
    But now I can acces to a folder called Workgroup and inside are the shared folders of this computer


    Could be the name "WORKGROUP"? How can I know the name of the windows net?
    I tryed "HOME" but nothing happends.

    Thanks!

    Run the following command and see if you can access the shares on your Windows machine:
    Code:
    nautilus smb://192.168.0.100
    Changing 192.18.0.100 to the ip address of the Windows machine.

    If you cannot then disable the Windows firewall and try it again.

    Yes! It works! But when I restart the PC it is not memorized and I have to do it again.

    2 options:

    [1] Bookmark it

    Run the command again:
    Code:
    nautilus smb://192.168.0.100
    Then bookmark it: Bookmarks > Add bookmark

    [2] Gigolo
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...16&postcount=3

    Gigolo will automount the remote shares when you log into your Ubuntu box.
