I am trying to access my windows 7 pc from my ubuntu laptop running 11.10 64bit but I cannot open the system-config-samba gui.

I am following this tutorial. My windows 7 pc sees the laptop no problem at all.

Can you add some information to your question? I'm not sure what you mean by "samba gui" – Jorge Castro Oct 14 '11 at 17:05
Ive been following a tutorial i found on the net and it shows a samba server configuration box that I have to select preferences from then server settings from but if I try and open samba(as shown) I get asked for my ubuntu password then nothing. – Martyn Jones Oct 14 '11 at 17:13
Can you link to the tutorial? – Jorge Castro Oct 14 '11 at 17:13… – Martyn Jones Oct 14 '11 at 17:18
I know that is for 11.04 but i found one for 11.10 on the same site. – Martyn Jones Oct 14 '11 at 17:20

You need to install glade and python-glade. It is most easy using synaptic. i/ve have had the same problem and now it works fine.

sudo apt-get install glade

sudo apt-get install python-glade2
