As a relative noob with Linux (Ubuntu) I was enjoying learning stuff with Ubuntu Karmic - and everything I tried seemed to work even after my inexpert fiddling - which was nice! However, since installing Ubuntu Lucid I've spent loads of time trying to re-establish the share I had under Karmic whereby my Ubuntu PC's DVDROM was automatically available to my connected Win7 PC.
After a couple of days effort I've got to the point where I can access the CD or DVD mounted in Ubuntu, from Win7 but I cannot access the files within the CD or DVD (Windows Err Mssg: You Do Not Have Permission To Access.. I have noticed that since installing Lucid the mount point seems to be the name of the disk whereas under Karmic it was fixed as something like cdrom1. So if I edit smb.conf I can't specify the mount point as it depends on the disk name. Though to be honest I have no idea if this is anything to do with the problem!
To save what little hair I have left I'd be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to have my Ubuntu PC's DVDROM available on my Win7 PC for read & write. PS I posted this several days ago on the Ubuntu forum but there's been no replies at all - I was wondering if the question is so daft that they think.
I've got a SATA drive (formatted as NTFS) I share between an XP machine and an Ubuntu machine. From Ubuntu, I never write to the drive... I only write to it from the XP box. So, I am wondering about a couple of things:
- If I do write to it from the Ubuntu machine, will that create any problems. By that I mean, if I add, rename, edit files from the Ubuntu machine, will that negatively affect anything?
- If, from the Ubuntu machine, I set perms on the files and folders on the drive, how will that affect things when I plug it back into the XP machine?

I have a problem with sharing files from external harddrive. If I create a share from my ubuntu home folder, I can access to it from my Windows 7 laptop. I also see shares created from external drive, but windows says I dont have permission to access in there.
I have recently set up an ubuntu installation on an old PC. After some fiddling with both it, and the windows 7 machine, I have managed to share all of my drives. However, when attempting to access them from ubuntu, only 2 of the 4 hard disk shares will mount, with the other 2 failing with a Unable to mount location, failed to mount windows share error message.
I have a USB drive connected to my Ubuntu laptop. I tried to create a share but cant access it from other Win PCs. I'm getting access denied even though I'm entering my ubuntu username and password. I'm guessing this has something to do with my drive being NTFS
I finally have my ubuntu up and running. I have a USB-drive which is often connected to my Ubuntu-machine. I want to share this via Samba but I can't set the user-rights. If I try to acces the file (via windows machine) I can see the directory but if I open it it gives me: \Computermediadirectory is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. I tried setting the rights but it just 'changes back immediately'. I found some posts about not being able to set rights via ubuntu on a ntfs disk. If I mount it via fstab it will give an error when the USB-drive is not connected. So that's no option. Is there a way to share this drive via my Samba server? I did get access to a partition on my linux-machine, to I assume my samba-settings are correct.
I recently installed Ubuntu with partion with Vista, and I am enjoying the Ubuntu experience will buy a book and learn this awesome OS, my question is this:
My wife has a laptop that runs Vista, and when i use my Vista she can see my files and I share this hard drive with her, but when i run Ubuntu she cant see this drive, i have extrernal hard drive as my backup with lot of different files on it and she can pull files from it but when i use Ubuntu she can see on her Vista Network, how can i make so when i use Ubuntu she can see my drive? On my Windows i set up sharing of files but how do the same with Ubuntu.
I have a little ODROID C1+ ARM box with Debian Jesse installed on a SD card. I am trying to share an entire external USB NTFS drive to all clients (Windows 7, Android) on my network. I had this working until a few days ago when I reflashed an updated distro. Now I can't remember what black magic was involved. iptables is not installed and no firewall is active.I have installed Samba and Caja-share. I have edited the fstab
with the understanding that this would allow permissions to be assigned and saved for NTFS partitions. I then used chmod to assign everything on the drive to nobody:nogroup as I recalled this was necessary from when I last got it to work.SMB.config is currently set as
Code: Select allworkgroup = *edited* [Seagate 4TB] path = "/media/odroid/Seagate 4TB" writable = yes force user = nobody
with no other changes. The folder /media/odroid/Seagate 4TB has been created. I have right-clicked this folder and shared with Caja-share
Code: Select all[x] Share this folder Share name: Seagate 4TB [x] Allow others to create and delete files in this folder [x] Guest access (for people without a user account)
but so far all I get in Windows when I try to access the share is a prompt for credentials, which is what I want to avoid.
when I try to share files off of my external hard drive over my network; it says it is shared on my ubuntu machine but when I try to access the file on my windows machine it says I do not have permission.
I have an external USB hard drive at /dev/sdb1 (NTFS)
2 users: johnny, audio
for some reason this drive is mounted at /media/TREKSTOR_ with johnny as the owner. I can't seem to chown the drive to audio. If I unmount the device, and remount it, the owner is set to johnny again. I need to access this drive from the audio account.It's a 1TB drive, so I wouldn't be able to reformat it to EXT3 easily as it's almost 60% full.
Am currently building a new PC and will be using both ubuntu 10.04 and win7. I have 2x 320GB drives and 1x 1TB drive. I plan to use a drive each for the OSs (win7 + nix) and the 1tb for my home partition. My home partition will store my music, videos, docs, Virtual Machines (note file sizes are sometimes bigger than 4GB!). What file system should i use? FAT32 will not work because of the large file size of the virtual machines.
I have a simple Xubuntu server at my house that I connected an extra external hard drive too. What I would like to do is setup a backup system for my computers to backup to this hard drive. How would I go about setting up the drive to be shared on Xubuntu? I would prefer commands as I use PuTTY to manage the server.
I have a netbook with an intergrated webcam running Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 I'm looking for a way to share the camera to a windows desktop computer to use the webcam as if I had plugged in a USB webcam. I want to do this because Windows has some really great software for Webcams but runs horribly on the netbook.
I am using 10.4 desktop and currently got everything setup the way i like it, but when sharing my network folder I can see the folders and everything seems fine then when i click to access the files it gives me an error message of not having permission to the folders. I tried going into the basic permissions tab in folder properties like you normally would with ntfs permission sharing in windows (don't know if thats how things work in Ubuntu but i gave it a try) and nothing would change when trying to change read/write permissions or read only permissions.
I keep trying and keep trying to set up my father's documents folder on our PC running Ubuntu 11.04 as a shared folder across the network with Windows computers, and I keep getting error messages like this one:
"'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot share path /home/frank as we are restricted to only sharing directories we own. Ask the administrator to add the line "usershare owner only = false" to the [global] section of the smb.conf to allow this."
I currently have his home folder set up so anyone on our PC running Ubuntu can access and change the files, at the moment. I also want to know if I can set up this file sharing with Windows, but still have all his files protected with a password?
after much flaunching around for several days, I was able to access a windows based printer on my network from this Ubuntu 10.4 laptop. What I first discovered was I had to install Samba and Cups (cups was already installed as it turned out). Having done that, I tried several iterations of discovering the HP printer attached to a Dell Latitude on my network. Nothing.Then I read something, somewhere about using the IP address of the Latitude instead of the network name (Latitude). So I peeked into the router to find the IP address assigned to Latitude and VOILA! I plugged that into the box for location,along with the name of the printer and it did the rest. Actually it found the right drivers and did the rest.
I see a problem with that protocol, however. If I reset the router, which I have to do once a week or so, I fear that the IP assigned to Latitude will change. As it is, it has 192.168.2.2 but if I reset and bring up my Asus first, I imagine Latitude will end up with ~.2.3, in which case I have no idea what will happen.
I have just installed Ubuntu desktop and I am using this pc as a file server. I have already installed Samba and have it operational and viewable by my windows computers. Now the problem is that I have 2 hard drives and the way that I have Samba set up it is sharing my home directory which is wonderful but my windows computers do not have access to the second hard drive. I search for several hours this morning trying to figure out how to do this but cannot figure it out.
I have a laptop running Windows XP with a secure wireless internet connection. I want to share this connection to my desktop running Ubuntu 9.10 via an direct ethernet cable connection. So far in Windows I checked the "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the Wireless Network Connection Properties menu. Doing this creates a new IP Configuration. Here is an output of running the ipconfig command: Windows IP Configuration
I have an Ethernet hub, and want two computers (both notebooks) to share my internet connection. One is running Ubuntu 9.10 and the other is running Windows Vista. I want both computers to be able to connect to the internet (I use a cable modem).
However, when I plug both computers in, I am able to get only one of them working at one time. When Ubuntu works with the internet, Windows does not work (although it sees the internet connection). When Windows works, Ubuntu sees the connection, but cannot connect.
I have a 500gb hdd and a 320gb hdd . i want to dual boot with windows 7 on the 500. I usually make 4 partitions for windows - 1. windows 2. programs 3. games 4. data- and put ubuntu on the 2nd hard drive.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.4 LTS and I want to share a printer on that computer with my windows network (mix of XP and Vista). I have network connectivity and and can see other windows computers and they can see me, I am just stumped on how to share a printer on my linux machine with all of the Windows computers on my network.
After installing Ubuntu, it didnt automount my windows partitions on startup. I always had to click them in PLACES to mount them. I also had firefox profile folder same as in windows. So every time i started Ubuntu, i clicked on my windows parititon in PLACES and than firefox. It wasnt ideal but it worked. but i wanted them to automount so i edited fstab to be like this
Code: # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier # for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name # devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
Just took the plunge and removed Windows 7 from my desktop rig and I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04
I was using this PC to share my Internet (DSL) connection to any and all other PC's on my network, wired and wireless, and I am attempting to set this up in Ubuntu.
My desktop, other wired PC's, a wireless AP and my DSL modem are all connected to a 8 port Ethernet switch and I was using ICS in Windows 7 to share my Internet connection once I established the connection from my desktop.
Can this be done in Ubuntu? As soon as I make the DSL connection it says that Auto eth0 disconnects (which I set to share to all in IPv4 settings which I read on the forum is the way to share)... thus nothing is currently shared :/
In this document it states that the sharing computer needs two network interfaces... but in Windows I only used the one...
