I'm trying to set up an Ubuntu computer as a centralised storage for a few Windows 7 computers on my network. I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.10.
However, when I try to install Samba through the terminal using
sudo apt-get install samba, I get this error:
Package samba is not available, but is referred to by another package.
If I try to install it by clicking on the directory I want to share, then checking "Share this folder" to trigger the "Sharing service is not installed, Install Server" dialogue box, it results in these errors:
Package 'samba' is virtual. Package 'libpam-smbpass' is virtual. Sharing service installation failed
I can't seem to find any information online about these errors - can someone help?
