Ubuntu :: System Doesn't Recognize Share Files From Windows
Sep 20, 2010
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?.
I've had a problem for a while-- when I save files on a USB stick in Ubuntu, then put it in a windows computer, it doesn't recognize the files. It only recognizes a video file that I have, but not the .doc files. The folders either don't appear or only appear as shortcuts.
I need a command-line method of copying files from a Linux box to a Windows machine that is in a domain and requires authentication. I cannot install additional software or services on the Windows XP machine. I can install any software on the Linux machine. I've tried scp, but the connection failed and if my understanding is correct it is because scp requires that the target (windows machine) be running an ssh service. Is there a command-line linux utility that can pass Windows domain user and password and then copy a file from the linux machine to a share on the windows machine?
I have 30 systems in a LAN . My users need to login as domain user from their XP clients and store their files in the Linux server. They should not be allowed to store in local machine and also should be granted a particular size of space in server.
what are the procedures to be done in linux server and
just like in windows we access shared files in by typing in run command
\192.168.0.1 is there a provision to view shared files from xp to Linux
I have a hp pc that has a hard drive of 750 gb and a recovery hard drive of 31gb. I installed linux side by side with windows 7 for dual booting. Now I can't boot windows 7 anymore. During the installation of linux, I chose the advanced option so as to manually partition the drives for linux. On the available list of drives, I chose the 750gb and clicked on modify. I chose 150gb for the root "/" (on ext4) and 700mb for swap out of the 750gb and clicked install. After finishing the installation I restarted the pc and sought to test linux. The linux works fine but when i tried to start windows, I have a boot error. My pc doesn't seem to recognize windows anymore. It takes me straight to the HP recovery tool. I don't understand why. So I logged into ubuntu and check the disk utility and I discovered that I have a whooping 600gb unallocated space. It's like my whole windows is gone. This is what Disk Utilty shows
my android phone doesn't seem to be recognized by the system and it's file system is vfat how did it occur while i've been using my phone as a storage device it still works yesterday but upon plugging it in the usb port it says "cannot mount volume".....
have you used fsarchiver? i heard bad things about partimage that it doesn't recognize the files it creates and you have to rename them all to .gz or i don't know what ... fsarchiver seems promising and i made a few backups of ntfs partition using it ... so , have you used it ? and if so , what do you think about it?
So the only experience I have with Linux is all from Ubuntu, and I just spontaneously decided that I needed a change...two days later my triple boot Macbook Pro got slimmed down to a dual boot OSX/OpenSUSE 11.2 machine. But there are some general problems, and I have absolutely no idea how to solve them. First, wireless isn't recognized at all...there isn't even a space for wireless connections. Second, I haven't been able to get compiz to work yet, and I can only suspect that the system doesn't recognize my video card, or the driver isn't installed. Yet again, no idea how to fix this.
Before Christmas, I wiped all partitions off my Acer Aspire One D150 netbook and installed Jolicloud Linux to try out. It's great, but I'm missing too much of my Windows-only software so I'd like to switch back.The problem I'm having is that the Windows XP Home setup CD is starting up the installer fine, but when it comes to selecting the harddrive to install on it's not finding anything.I've tried using GParted to wipe all partitions again and create a new FAT32 partition, but that's not being picked up by Windows XP setup either. (I've tried setting the 'boot' flag on this partition in GParted as well, but no change.)Is FAT32 not the correct paritition type for Windows XP Home? I'm thinking this isn't relevant at this point, because Windows XP setup doesn't seem to be mounting the HDD, nevermind analysing what partitions it has on it already.
I have a gateway laptop that I have attempted to dual boot, but the computer only sees the Ubuntu OS and the Vista Windows Recovery Partition. (Actually, gnome reports 3 separate Ubuntu OSs... part of the problem?)
When I type fdisk -l, I get the following message code...
I recently have installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Netbook Edition in my personal netbook. The thing is that I had installed Windows 7 in the hard disk drive so I decided to install Ubuntu alongside with it. After the process of installation everything was cool but I hadn't the Grub working. I then pressed the Shift button during the booting process so I got the Grub menu but it didn't show the Windows 7 partition. The Windows installation was not erased because its file system is present in Nautilus. I have tried reinstalling the Grub a thousand times but nothing changes. I have attached the results of the boot info script so you can have some info about my booting configuration.
I have a folder on my windows xp machine that I am trying to share with my xubuntu machine (10.04) and I have been searching all night, and have found several resources for accomplishing this, but nothing that seems to work with this version of xubuntu. I've downloaded Samba and tried the smb://xxx.xxx.x.xxx/Shared Command and it says "No such file or directory". There is no "Shared Folders" under System, Network, or any directory. Right clicking on a folder produces no sharing options. The smb.conf file seems to have destroyed itself out of spite.
I'm running Lucid and and trying to get Samba set up to allow sharing files on my network. My problem is that my Windows laptop (Win7) can't see the Linux PC when I click on Network. It only shows my own laptop and my roommate's Vista laptop. However, if I manually connect to the computer (\serenity) it works just fine.
Right now I'm simply using the smb.conf that comes with the package and adding my share info.
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...
I am connecting to a Windows 2003 server share from my Ubuntu 9.10 machine. This is not a problem & deleting normal files is fine. What I am actually trying to do is remove a virus from this server. If I have AV software running on the server it is constantly picking up the virus & eventually this kills the server. The AV software is unable to remove the virus on the server, but is able to on desktop machines.Anyway, I thought use Linux to do the job & get the AV software back on the server. No go. I get a permission denied error when trying to remove the files with rm -f "filename"Is there anyway around this? I am reluctant to start the server with the Ubuntu live CD as it is in use as a file server. If I could remove the files manually this would be good.
Recently, I've again been trying to get file sharing working on my home network. I made some progress last night, getting so far as having all the shares on my Windows XP desktop visible to a netbook running Ubuntu 10.04 & connected wirelessly. But I ran into some snags.
Here's what I'm working with:
-a desktop running Windows 7 Ultimate -a desktop which dual boots Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit and Windows XP Pro SP3 -a netbook which dual boots Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 and Ubuntu 10.04.
Everything connects wired except the netbook, which connects wirelessly. The router assigns each a specific internal IP address, so in effect all have static internal IP addresses, tied to the MAC addresses of their network adapters.
I have Samba Server Configuration Tool installed on both the desktop (Ubuntu 9.10) and netbook (Ubuntu 10.04). Versions are 1.2.63 in both Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04.
Here's as far as I got last night:
-Shares on the Windows XP machine were accessible from both the Windows 7 machine and Ubuntu 10.04 on the netbook, with no password required.
-I configured Samba on both machines to be part of the same workgroup (named PENGUIN) as the Windows 7 machine and the desktop when it's running Windows XP.
-I set up a share in Samba on the netbook while running Ubuntu 10.04. The share is visible on the network from the Windows 7 machine, but I couldn't access it. I was asked for a username and login. I had no idea which one to use, but no combination I tried worked. Windows kept saying it couldn't find a "path" to the share.
-In the Nautilus "network" item on the netbook, I can see the shares on my Ubuntu 9.10 desktop. But I can't access them. Again, I get asked for a username and password, and I have no idea what to enter, or where the username and password can be set.
-I set up a share on the Windows 7 machine, allowing read-only access to everyone. But it doesn't show up on either of the Ubuntu machines, at all, in the "Penguin" workgroup. So I'm not sure how to proceed.
Do I need to explicitly configure the IPv4 settings on each machine to a static internal IP? As I stated, each machine gets a predictable address assigned by the router, so in effect the machines do have static IP addresses. However, I'm not sure that's all the same to Samba.
I am having trouble sharing files between Ubu and Win boxes. We have seval boxes hooked up to the same router. XP and Vista boxes are part of the same workgroup (lets call it FOO). No domain. It is a simple home network. Each Win box has its own name. Win boxes can see each other (by clicking Network icon from control panel). Shared resources can be accessed by providing user name and password. Now I need to make Maverick box a part of the the same workgroup. All group members should be able to access Maverick's shared recourse by providing user name and password and vice versa.
I installed samba (is that what I need?), but couldn't get things working yet. Official docs aren't very clear. What is the server name and domain? Win boxes don't need any of that. I can just click network icon and go into any computer I want. What are the steps to setup Ubu box similarly? Samba docs say edit smb.conf file. I have 2 in my box :
Which one is for editing. Where do I put FOO (our work-group name)? How to set permissions?
Is there a way to use Nautilus (or another non-KDE based burning program) to burn files to CD which exist on a Windows share? Whenever I drag files into the Blank CD window, it says Error (Operation not supported by backend). I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid)
I am running Windows 7 on an HP laptop. I recently used Wubi to run Dual OS with Ubuntu. Everything is working fine, Ubuntu is great, but I am somewhat of a newbie and want to know: Is there any way that I can transfer, or share, my windows 7 files (music, pictures, etc) in Ubuntu? I can't seem to figure it out?
I have been using Eclipse to program in Java for a long time, and have been using Jigloo for most of my GUI design. Recently I decided to try out the C/C++ plugin. I tried installing it, but it did not work. After many attempts, I finally gave up. However, after uninstalling it I found that Jigloo had stopped working. Any other plugins I try to install now also don't work. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling plugins, and reinstalling eclipse, but nothing I have done fixes it. Although eclipse says that the software has been installed, nothing shows up in the features list or the plugins list.
Another problem: When I install eclipse from the repositories, it doesn't install a bunch of libraries and eclipse cannot recognize standard java files.
I can see linux share folders from windows,but not the windows share files from Linux.The windows pc name is jm-pc and the share file is temp. When the command nmblookup is used it discovers the Windows pc ok.
Code: nmblookup jm-pc querying jm-pc on 10.0.0.255 10.0.0.3 jm-pc<00>
i created a folder /home/windows and ran the smbmount command
Code: root[~]# smbmount \\jm-pc\temp /home/windows mount error: could not resolve address for jm-pc: No address associated with hostname No ip address specified and hostname not found
When i try to run smbclient,and enter the correct password that was created for samba(which is the same password as the Windows pc):
I'm trying to set up a share for my system which is dual booting windows 7 64bit and ubuntu 32bit 10.10 What i did
-Install Samba from the Ubuntu software center
- In System->Admin->Samba add the share for my /Home/Downloads
- In smb.conf i edited the workgroup to that of my windows7 workgroup
- In the home folder right clicked on Downloads and in sharing option i allowed others create and delete
privileges and Guest access ( security not an issue). Then allowed Nautilus to add the permissions automatically. Now from what I have seen if i go into windows 7 in the network section i should have a Ubuntu share appearing but i don't. The only devices which show are the router and the computer itself ( of which ubuntu isn't in) Is there anything i missed or how do i access these files ?
I am trying to see share files on my windows machine to my linux machine. I would like an answer to how to fix the problem. This is where i am at i am using my own network to learn who to use nmap properly. I ping my whole network with nmap -sS -O. Then i used nmblookup -a which gave me the infromation i needed. Then i run smbclient -L computername -I ip address -N
This will not show me the windows os this only show me my laptop. What can i change for this to show me the other computer on this network. The port i am wanting is open. I want to be able to mount the share files and move them to my computer i am going to use the commands put and get to move the files when i am able to get to the smb: >
I cannot access figure out how to access files stored on a windows share within an application. I can access files on a windows share from places>network but if I am trying to access files from say audacitcy or gtkpod by means of file>open when the application brings up the "places" dialog there is no network Icon to choose from.
Here I am editing /etc/samba/smb.conf and trying to remember what I should chmod the directory and the files to, then I think to myself there's probably an easier way. That way should be clear to the user.
There's dropbox and Ubuntu one but these are something slightly different, these sorts of things involving a cloud service or something needing to download to Windows clients, which is not what we want if we don't have an internet connection. So, is there a better way? Something to aide making smb.conf and permissions perhaps?
