So, if you could also post the results of the following, it would be much appreciated!

    Code:
    ls -ld /etc/samba/private
    ls -ld /etc/samba/public
    ls -ld /etc/samba/tmp
    The contents of your smbusers file raises numerous issues, which I don't have time to get into right at the moment -- I should have time later this evening, however. Hopefully by then you'll also have posted the ls -ld output, and we can really go to town!

    Cheers,

    OK. so after trying all three of these commands, I get a " no such file or directory" error on all three commands. I'm guessing samba now isn't configured correctly or actually installed correctly perhaps?

    Originally I did a sudo apt-get install samba and hoped for the best...

    It appeared to install correctly indeed.

    Thanks so much for your help guys thus far.. you guys are awesome!!!

    Eirikr, here's the new output:

    [root@Triboot ~]# ls -ld /usr/smbroot/private
    drwxrwx--- 2 root private 4096 2009-02-04 23:32 /usr/smbroot/private/

    [root@Triboot ~]# ls -ld /usr/smbroot/public
    drwxrwx--- 2 root public 4096 2009-02-04 23:32 /usr/smbroot/public/

    [root@Triboot ~]# ls -ld /usr/smbroot/tmp
    drwxrwx--- 2 root root 4096 2009-02-05 14:31 /usr/smbroot/tmp/
    [root@Triboot ~]#

    Not to worry about not being able to get to this right way. My time is your time -- whenever.

    Just time for a quick note before running out the door -- these ls -ld commands are specific to Januszky's setup -- you can ignore them.

    And your "display not found" problems are because you're ssh-ing in. You need to add the -X flag (that's a capital "X") to your ssh command line to enable proper X GUI program functionality -- otherwise the GUI program tries to run on the machine you've ssh-ed to, only without the proper display envars set, which doesn't work too well, as you've noticed. Read up on man ssh if you're interested in more, or google for "ssh x tunnel" for what might be easier-to-understand material.

    Cheers,

    I'm using putty if that makes a difference.

I'm an old guy who messed with a little DOS & BASIC decades ago and 'nix is new to me but I'm not uncomfortable with command line stuff given direction. I'm at a genuine beginning stage now.
    If you can follow this howto, you can follow that one. All you need to do is follow the first post. It looks like a lot, but it's really only a few edits. If you follow it closely, you will have working access to your Windows computers.

    If it's still too much for you, you might try a different approach. Use FTP instead of Samba for file sharing. Try the 5th link in my sig.

    Any time you use a graphical interface, you should invoke SU priveleges with gksudo or you will likely get GTK errors.
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
    This is important to note because Ubuntu does not have a root account by default.

    More information here: http://linux.die.net/man/1/gksudo

    It's also important to note that sometimes GUI text editors add invisible characters to files, so it's really not a good idea to use them for editing conf files.

    It makes a huge difference -- this means you're sitting in front of a Windows computer, so no X-based (i.e. Linux GUI) programs will run. You'll have to use vim, emacs, nano, or pico instead, since these are terminal-based. My personal preference is vim, but pick your poison. There should be cheat-sheets easily findable online for the commands used in any of these.

    Re: HOWTO: Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows

    In other distros I have used in the past, I was able to configure samba for sharing, then have my file share box just show up on the Win network without making any modifications to the Win machines on the network. I have transferred the same smb.conf from distro to distro and have always had good luck with this.

    I recently upgraded my system from a 160Gb hdd to a 320Gb hdd, and when doing so, I managed to lose my smb.conf. Now, I'm having a hard time reconfiguring my system to share files over the Win network. In most other distro, I did this via the kcontrol panel, but in Kubuntu 8.1.0, this feature is gone.

    I need help setting up my system so that it will just share to everyone, without passwords and without having to modify settings on the Win boxes.

    Here's my smb.conf, if it helps at all.

    Code:
    [global]
        ; General server settings
        netbios name = HONOGHR
        server string =
        workgroup = GALACTIC_EMPIRE

        passdb backend = tdbsam
        security = user
        null passwords = true
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers

        wins support = yes
    
        printing = CUPS
        printcap name = CUPS
    
        syslog = 1
        syslog only = yes
    
    ; NOTE: If you need access to the user home directories uncomment the
    ; lines below and adjust the settings to your hearts content.

    This should work for you (note, the "wins support = no" is an extremely important change):
    Code:
    [global]
        ; General server settings
        netbios name = HONOGHR
        workgroup = GALACTIC_EMPIRE
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_KEEPALIVE SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    
        security = share
        name resolve order = hosts wins bcast
    
        wins support = no
    
        printing = CUPS
        printcap name = CUPS
    
        syslog = 1
        syslog only = yes
