I'm pretty new to ubuntu and am having some problems with samba. I am using XBMCbuntu and I have a few shares which I share with my family and some that I don't. You can see this in my config file.
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = %h server (Samba, XBMC) netbios name = XBMC dns proxy = no name resolve order = hosts wins bcast guest account = scrub load printers = no show add printer wizard = no log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 syslog = 0 panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d encrypt passwords = true passdb backend = tdbsam obey pam restrictions = yes unix password sync = yes passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n $ pam password change = yes map to guest = bad user force user = matt force group = matt [Pictures] path = /home/matt/hdd1/Pictures comment = Pictures writeable = yes browseable = yes guest ok = yes [System] path = /home/matt/.xbmc comment = XBMC System Share valid users = matt writeable = yes browseable = yes guest ok = no [Root] path = / comment = Root acess valid users = matt writeable = yes browseable = yes guest ok = no [Other] path = /home/matt/hdd1/other comment = other valid users = matt writeable = yes browseable = yes guest ok = no
The "pictures" share is working correctly, anyone can read/write to it. The "system" share is working correctly, only I can read/write to it.
However the "root" and "other" shares don't work as I want, I am the only one who can read but I can't write.
I've tried changing some file system permissions but I'm not too familiar with them and I'm not convinced that is the problem.
Any help would be awesome.
