I need to copy files from OS X on a Mac to Ubuntu on a PC. I enabled File Sharing on the Mac and selected the samba option. I was then able to connect to the samba server in Nautilus. Copying files was no problem, but copying directories failed, with the error message "is a directory".
I can accomplish what I want using samba in the terminal. But it would be more conveninient to do this in Nautilus.
