How do I get it to play movies? It needs all kinds of codecs apparently. Is there a good source for these?I'm running Ubuntu on another machine. How do I connect to THAT?I was able to use samba in Ubuntu to connect to my windows network. Will that work to connect Fedora and Ubuntu?I get this when I try to use sudo in terminal.is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.How do I fix that and how can I log in as root? It won't accept my password even though I know it's right.
As you can (maybe) see, my entire /home folder is shared. For various reasons, I'd prefer it if only say my music and videos were shared, how do I do that? I've looked around the web and seen some other people's samba.conf files but mine looks totally different and I don't want to lose the functionality I have by messing around with it.
Its an absolute failure for me. No matter how i try, i cannot see my samba-shared folders in a Fedora machine from another Fedora machine. Both has FC15 installed, networked through WiFi. Tried everything from this forum, (install samba, start samba service, configure samba) but cannot see my shared folder. In Windows it works fine (I can see my WIndows shares from a Fedora laptop, but i cannot see my Fedora shares from a Feroda laptop. Why it is always so difficult to have a simple facility in Linux?
I'm on Ubuntu 10.10. I installed Samba and went Administration > Samba. Added a folder [Videos] to share (this folder is on an ext partition). I then went to the folder [Videos] Right+Click > Sharing Options. I selected 'Share this folder', I put in a name and comment, checked Allow others to create and delete files in this folder and checked Guest Access.
When I view this shared folder [Videos] from my Windows PC I can access it with no problems but when I try drill down into sub folders I get a permissions error. [Attached a screenshot of the error]. If I share each folder separately then I can access them but obviously I'd like to share a folder and all it's contents.
I'm having some problems with file and print sharing between my Fedora 12 box and my Win 7 box. trying to access shares on the Win 7 machine results in a "unable to retrieve the shares list" error message. I've been searching Google for a while now with no success.
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 ?
I got my somewhat older desktop running ubuntu 9.10 and I'm loving it so far. However a while ago while I was slightly intoxicated I boasted to my roommates that sharing files with this thing should be super easy, since it's linux and all that. Since then I've been trying to set up the desktop as a streaming media server, with no success. I found a pretty good guide on how to get Samba up and running on instructables. My laptop is part of a school domain. Since many of my roommates go to the same university, theirs are also part of that domain.
For those of you who aren't too familiar with Windows (anymore), your computer can either be part of a workgroup or a domain. A workgroup is intended for home networks and makes it easier to share files, which is what I'm trying to do, and what the guide calls for. I've illustrated the problem in the attached image. As you can see both computers connect to the same router. I don't think I really have to explain, but I just figured I should try to be as clear as possible.
My question to you is: is there any way that I can set up the ubuntu desktop, or samba, so that it can share files over the wireless network at home with the computers that run windows and are part of the school domain? I'm guessing I should somehow be able to access the desktop from another computer on the same network if I give it proper access. I just have no idea how to do it or where to look, since almost everything I encounter calls for putting the windows machine in a home workgroup.
I am using ubuntu 10.04 .I tried to share my files on windows network using samba , I changed theworkgroup name in samba configuration file ..but it dint work for me will you please tell me the exact procedure to share the files on windows network ..
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 desktop. I set up my main user- admin and loaded the folders of files I would be working on and the relevant additional programs. Now, I would like to set up a second user so that someone else can use the computer with access to many of my files and folders, but not all, which would defeat having a second user. I have set sharing preferences for all of my folders. I have giving most rights to my second user. Yet the second user cannot even see ANY of my folders when they sign-in.
I have 3 PC's in my household and I wanted to know if I can share folders with them lively. For example, I have LAMP server set up on all three, would it be possible for me to work on one PC then work on another and everything would automatically be shared?
I want to share certain files/folders with other computers in the network. Now I know how to do this in two ways: using the GUI and modifying the smb.conf file, but the GUI may not be available (e.g. connecting to the server using SSH) and the smb.conf file takes a little bit of time to modify (and from what I have noticed by using the GUI, the smf.conf file does not get modified). Is there a way to share files/folders using only the CLI and without the need of modifying files?
(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)?
sudo su was not originally in the steps but it wouldn't give me permission to edit the samba file unless I did.Also at the end it said command not found or something like that when I tried to restart samba, so I just logged out and then back in.So now I can identify Ubuntu and Win 7 from on each other, but I can not access either of them. Ubuntu goes into windows network, then workgroup, shows the computers on the network but when I try to access one this comes up:When windows tries to access Ubuntu it request for username and password. I type it in but it does not recognize it.
P.S. I allowed the Documents folder on Ubunto to share across the Network, and while it shows up in along with myshare on Win 7, it still requests for username and password.
I've just recently got my samba confg working with a workgroup. I can view/access/modify windows machines on workgroup just fine. What I can't do is access shares created on ubuntu desktop. My ubuntu machine appears on Windows Workgroup, but denies to Windows users. When I try to create a share using Folder Sharing, I get this returned to me: 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. Invalid parameter.
Here's by samba config file. [global] workgroup = JANSSEN HOME server string = UServer encrypt passwords = No map to guest = Bad User obey pam restrictions = Yes pam password change = Yes passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u passwd chat = *Entersnews*spassword:* %n *Retypesnews*spassword:* %n *passwordsupdatedssuccessfully* . username map = /etc/samba/smbusers unix password sync = Yes syslog = 0 log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 dns proxy = No usershare allow guests = Yes panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
[printers] comment = All Printers path = /var/spool/samba create mask = 0700 printable = Yes browseable = No
So I want to put some of my folders on my network. I open up nautilus and go to my home folder and right click -> properties-> share and then selected share this folder, made it so that others could modify stuff on it and have guest access (which is what I want), and changed the share name to "home". Then I clicked create share. I then went to Places->Network->******'s public files on [the name of my computer]. But then some stupid error message popped up saying:
"DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)"
I attempted to share my ~/Videos folder using the Folder Sharing dialog when right-clicking a folder in Nautilus. It started to install but failed partially spitting out some error that I didn't bother to read/write down. It asked me to restart which I did. But now when reattempting to share the folder, I get given the following message: 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot create tmp file /var/lib/samba/usershares/:tmp0BRWpm
I've looked around for a thread for this particular error, but I can't find anything specific to the "cannot create tmp file" issue. I'm assuming it's some folder permission issue. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling samba from the Ubuntu Software Center.
Current situation: two drives, Ubuntu 10.4 64bit installed and running on one drive, other drive blank and formatted for NTFS. What I want: When I download of save anything I want it to be stored automatically on the NTFS drive with no encryption and have the 'Places' folders point to the corresponding folders on that drive. Why: simple, I'm planing to dual boot Ubuntu and windows 7, and the NTFS folder will be the 'My Documents' Drive, this is why it's formatted NTFS. There will be over 100GB on files I'll need both OS's to have access too and I would like it to be automatic to save duplication. Also, if I need to, I want to be able to take that documents drive from the Ubuntu PC and be able to recover the info with an inferior windows OS... because that's what I have lying round in an emergency.
I am trying to setup vpn to access folders and files from my school. VPN is connected now through networkmanager, but I don't know how to actually gain access to the folders on the school server.
Is it through nautilus? Or the "Connect to Server"? The school provides addresses that begins with \.. something, and I have tried typing it in to nautilus and the "Connect to Server" but it fails to connect.
I have googled this but all I find is how to connect to vpn manually or through networkmanager, and not how I then can access the folders on the server.
