Ubuntu Networking :: Personal File Sharing/share Files Doesn't Work
Apr 14, 2010
I'm using 10.04 beta...
If I go to system - preferences - personal file sharing, I cannot select "share files over the network." The panel is greyed out and the message "This feature cannot be enabled because the required packages are not installed on your computer" is shown
It ever so usefully doesn't tell me what those packages are though! - It'd be nice to have more useful error messages or the ability to click to install them...
Anyway, what do I have to do to get this going again?! I've installed everything to do with samba, webdav that I can find but still no cigar...
(Running Lucid Lynx) In the Personal File Sharing Preferences it won't let me to tick the box to share public files on the network as it says the required packages are not installed on my system. The options for sharing via Bluetooth are available to me however.What packages am I missing (and how do I get hold of them)?
I just installed the beta 10.04 LTS with Gnome Version: 2.29.92. I want to to create a network share but when I navigate to system>preferences>personal file sharing I can not create a share. The message indicates that the feature is not available because the required package is not installed. I tried to reinstall gnome-user-share and in reinstalled without issue but I still get the same thing. What am I missing? How can I create a network share?
My wife and I activated the 'Personal File Sharing' on our two Fedora #9 laptops. We can exchange photos and text files via our "public" folders, just fine. Entire setup took less than 20 minutes. We have not been able to get the Fedora #14 version of 'Personal File Sharing' to work using same, online and 'in system', help directions for both the F#9 and F#14. After four eves of looking I have not found any more detailed, install/activate help files anywhere. I can't ask my system manager because that's us. At this point the only thing I can think of is that there may be some part of the F#14 security structure that needs to be addressed and tweaked.
I would like to enable personal file sharing so I can access my laptop (hp Mini laptop w/ ubuntu) from my mac mini (OSX 10.4.11), but the message I get in PFS dialogue box is "This feature cannot be enabled because the required packages are not installed on your system".
I enabled Personal File Sharing under System > Preferences > Personal File Sharing. I clicked on Share public files on network and closed it. Then I put some files that I wanted to share in the Public folder and I went to another computer that was on the same router (they are both running Fedora 13) and I clicked on the Network tab (bookmark) in nautilus and there are no files there.
Ok Ive tried soooo many tutorials and been through sooo many forums but I cant get my file sharing to work from any computer. Ive got a - Ubuntu 10.04(64bit) desktop to use as a home web/file server, wired.(BEN-SERVER)- Vista(32bit) laptop, wireless.(BEN-LAPTOP)- Windows 7(64bit) desktop, wireless.(BEN-LAVIE)- EchoLife HG520s ADSL2 wireless modem.
At the moment...In Ubuntu network browswer it only displays BEN-LAPTOP.But trying to browse BEN-LAPTOP I get "Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server".Vista only displays BEN-LAVIE and browsing gives me "Windows cannot access \BEN-LAVIE"And Windows 7 doesn't display any.Previously I was able to share between Windows 7 and Ubuntu but I don't know what I did but it stopped working. I have since reinstalled Ubuntu and tried again from scratch but no luck
I've been searching on google but the only solution seems to be to change the name of the files (which didn't work). Is there any way to remove the banner? I'm not 3yrs old I know how to share files and don't need to be reminded where i can receive files.
I recently got my D-Link DWA-556 pci card working with my new desktop with Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit. Connection speed is good, but local network file transfer speeds are pitiful. I'm trying to copy some files from my laptop(also running 10.04) and I'm getting around 300-500 kb/s, which is actually lower than my typical download speeds. Anyone know what the problem might be? output of iwconfig is this:
My SAMBA share doesnt work. i have added valid users, public (not protected by password) shares are working but intended password protected share isnt.
Windows XP says:
Code: "You might not have petrmission to use network resource.
Multiple connections to server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one username are not allowed. disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again.." /etc/init.d/smb.conf
How does network file sharing work in Ubuntu? Is it only enabled for the Public folder? Or does it vary by folder permission settings, specifically in that folder's 'Properties' and allow others access the folders?
I'm asking because someone at my work may have had a complete breach of their personal files in the /home/ directory from their folder permission settings. I want to know if regardless of everyone having access permission to the folder, if they need to drag it to the Public folder for it to be network shared.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 in my laptop and at the same time I have Windows 7 (partitioned disk). I use mostly Ubuntu, but I need windows for some stuff. I want to share files of windows with Ubuntu (is weird but when I installed Ubuntu never gave me the option "share files from windows", I dunno why). Anyway, I can see the disk in Ubuntu, and I can see the folder /Documents and settings/, that creates windows by default with my files. However, the route is too long to arrive there from Ubuntu using the Terminal.
I created a shadow link using lndir to arrive to my files easier. It works fine, however, sometimes when I go to the files using this route, these are lightened in red, and when I try to enter to one of these folders, the system doesn't recognize it. After a while, these are in blue and I can go in them. Why it is happening?. What I did Is the "correct" way to do it?.
OS: ubuntu10.04 LTS running on latest oracle virtualbox. This works: I have opened a ubuntu one account. And I can log into that account. But I have to do so by: clicking 'ubuntu one' in top bar, and click 'account' in prompt that appears. Shouldn't log in take place automatically? Being logged in I'm able to make new folders. And appearently able to enter them (they are empty I quess) If I try to upload a file clicking 'upload file' in ubuntu one. A prompt appears and I choose the file to upload and click 'continue'. The prompt says "uploading" but nothing happens. If I choose a document folder and click 'mouse click right'. And then click 'sync with ubuntu one'. It prompts that it syncs the folders. But nothing happens.
i would like to set up file sharing from one ubuntu pc to another wireless laptop.I found samba on the internet i installed it and i can share files but it's slow a 700mb avi file was going to take 2 hours and from what i read samba is for sharing files from linux to windows.I also found ssh that to is slow also i think it goes over the internet or something like that.So is there any other way to share files that's faster or have i forgot something.I only have 2 ubuntu 10.04 computers and 1 open solaris but the open solaris i will not be putting on the network.
I thought I would try and be clever but have become stuck! I have bought a NEtgear ReadyNAS with a view of copying all sound files and photos to one place. I have a wired home network and a Windows XP PC which I have mapped the NAS to as a network drive.Then came the Linux bit. I have a laptop which I want to do the same with. I have set up the NAS so that it operates with both CIFS and NFS file systems. I can see the CIFS file system in the Network part of Ubuntu 9.10 but am having trouble in getting programs to see it. Ideally I want to use F Spot or Picasa to view the photos and then also use one of the audio packages to play music around the house. When I ask F Spot or Picasa to search for files or folders, the network does not show up in the list.
I have pc and a laptop. On the pc i have winXP 32-bit and on the laptop Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit . Can I share files between these two computers (cause i don't want to make dual-boot on my laptop), and if I can, how ?
After upgrading Jaunty to Karmic internet sharing (iptables) stoped working. Nothing in iptables configuration was changed. Computers behind my ubuntu router can ping it, have access to it (apache, samba, etc.). Only internet isnt forwarding. Clients configuration is the same as before upgrade.
