File sharing - How to?
Did quite a bit of 'net research and did more here but not having much luck in finding what I need, good directions that start with "Turn power on then...."
I have a laptop and currently have a divided HD with Ubuntu 12.04 on one side and Win7 on the other. Recently was convinced by a "tech" that the Surface RT was the best all around tablet to get as it would "plug right into Ubuntu for file sharing, etc". Major misrepresentation, to say the least.
What I would like to do, if possible, is set up file sharing on my home network between the RT 8.1 and the Ubuntu on the laptop.
Anybody know of simple, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions to getting this accomplished?
Tried doing the Samba download from the Ubuntu Software Center but didn't find it listed anywhere after the download. Is there a trick there I need to know about or somewhere else I need to go to get it?
Thanks for any assists.
