I am running Ubuntu 13.04 and Windows XP.
I am a samba newbie but was able to set this up on Ubuntu following the instructions posted here https://help.ubuntu.com/13.04/serverguide/samba-fileserver.html
My question is that although I can copy a word document to the share from linux, when I edit it in Word on Windows I cannot save and overwrite the file. It says the file is read only.
I have to save a copy and then do a move of the file on the Linux system.
I tried changing the perms of the file to 777 on the linux side but this didn't fix it so I am thinking it is a perms at the user level.
Does anyone know off the top of their head? I currently have security = user in my smb.conf file.
When copying a file from linux to the share it has my user name on it. When creating a file from windows to the share it has nobody nogroup on the file.
The good news is both linux and windows see the same files and I can open all the files put on the share in windows I just can't overwrite them with edits ( word 2007 files specifically ).
Any help on the setting to fix this is appreciated.
