I seem to have some issues sharing folders from my Ubuntu 12.04 machine to a Win7 machine. After playing around with the settings, I decided to revert to Samba's original setting by reinstalling it:
sudo apt-get purge samba sudo rm -rf /etc/samba/ /etc/default/samba sudo apt-get install samba
just to be sure I also run:
sudo apt-get install samba samba-common system-config-samba winbind
Now, I can't find /etc/samba folder any more. Even when I try to share a folder through Nautilus, I get:
Samba's testparm returned error 1: Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384) params.c:OpenConfFile() - Unable to open configuration file "/etc/samba/smb.conf": No such file or directory Error loading services.
Same when I try to list:
xxx@xxx:~$ ll /etc/samba ls: cannot access /etc/samba: No such file or directory
Any ideas what I did wrong, or what other package am I missing?
