Samba setup

From 'Software Center', install

  • SMB/CIFS
    Share directories with Windows

In order to install and use the Samba GUI to configure shares and Samba users, first install gksu

sudo apt-get install gksu

Then run

gksu-properties

And select Authentication mode = 'sudo' and Grab mode = 'enable'
To fix a known bug, next run

sudo touch /etc/libuser.conf

Then, from Software Center, install

  • Samba
    Create SMB shares

Then run Samba, add yourself as user, and configure the shares (directories you want to share)
