I had this exact problem. It turned out IT had installed some old version of VMWare tools with non-functioning vmhgfs kernel module. My solution was to run the configuration with the clobber-kernel-modules setting to overwrite the existing vmhgfs module. sudo vmware-config-tools.pl -d --clobber-kernel-modules=vmhgfs The -d selects all the defaults for ...

Banshee still doesn't have DAAP sharing. It can consume, but there's no DLNA server in there yet. According to the application selection blueprints for Natty, the Ubuntu developers wan't to "fix UPNP support". I take that to mean making Banshee comparable to RhythmBox but there's room for misinterpretation. The Banshee Team recommended method is through an ...

12.04 and later To share a printer attached to a computer on the network open the printer dialog from the menu on the cogwheel on the to panel side. Choose the printer with a right click and tick "Share" to enable sharing. Next open "Server -> Settings..." from the panel menu as shown here: This will open the following window Select "Show printers ...

I would do this using just grep: $ sudo arp-scan --interface=eth0 --localnet | grep -oP '^[\d.]+' 192.168.0.1 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.3 192.168.0.10 192.168.0.23 192.168.0.72 192.168.27.1 192.168.27.14 192.168.27.30 Explanation: The -P tells grep to use Perl Compatible Regular Expressions, where \d matches any number. The -o means "print ...

You could try using a mount --bind command. Something like mount --bind /path/to/folder /home/username/folder_to_sync This should make the contents of /path/to/folder available in both places. Ubuntu-one doesn't support symlinks, but it might support binding mounts. If it does work, you can add a line to /etc/fstab /path/to/folder ...

You have three options: Take any printer and hook it up to an always-on PC. The PC will be the printer server, and needs to be set up to allow printer sharing, as shown in the first part of Takkat's reply. (The client part is more or less the same independent of which printer sharing option you use.) Take any printer and hook it up to a hardware mini print ...

This is a two part question, requiring 2 part answer. First, Windows -> Ubuntu: To begin with, you need to make sure that your windows host allows connecting to the printers. There are various things that could disallow access, the most common one being Windows Firewall. Here is a quick howto Now that you have a working share on your windows host, you ...

Yup. Quite simple too. IMO this is quicker than using cups' web gui. Make cups accept connections from other computers. sudo nano /etc/cups/cupsd.conf And then replace Listen localhost:631 with Listen *:631. Save and exit (control+x, y, return). Note: If this computer ever goes out into the wild, where it's not hidden behind a router, it might be ...

According to the features page: Share folders with contacts Share folders with your trusted colleagues. Folder sharing is integrated into the Ubuntu desktop. Right-click on any synchronizing folder and pick contacts from your Evolution address book to share with. You can even grant the recipient read-only access for simple file viewing or ...

Ubuntu comes with an implementation of mDNS service discovery (also known under Apple's trademarked name Bonjour), which advertises your hostname over the local network under the .local domain. The standard hostname resolver will also do mDNS lookups. So if you set the hostname of one of your computers to foo, you should be able to ping it from another ...

Right-click a folder and select "Sharing Options". Then check off "Share this folder".

Another option would be a hardware print server. These can be had relatively inexpensively, and the benefit is that you don't have to keep a specific computer on to use a printer. This describes how to use a Netgear PS121v2. There are many others out there like this... How do I set up Print Server

If you're looking to have a persistent mount that is stale-proof (outside of the networking being down, or the remote machine being off) I would recommend using AutoFS In short Autofs (also know as Automount) will only mount a directory when it is needed or accessed and after a few moments of inactivity will unmount itself. By doing so you can setup a ...

In Linux stop sharing the printer through Samba. Share it through CUPS instead: go to http://localhost:631/ and there will be spoe "Share printers" checkbox. On Windows add a Network printer, and don't search for it; add manually this address: http://servername_or_IP:631/printers/printer_name printer_name is the name shown in the CUPS Web interface for ...

If You delete files, the files are gone forever Assuming You're using samba as your sharing server. There's a stackable VFS module in Samba called "recycle" What it basically does, is instead of actually deleting the file, it moves it to another directory that you specify. This allows you to get the file back to them that's as current as the time ...

Are you seeing the Windows Network folder in the Browse Network If so this is normal, it is the folder where the information goes that allows Ubuntu to connect to an existing Windows network. If your really paranoid, click it and see that it is empty unless you have other computers on a home network then you will see them by their computer names. ...

Set up your server to provide the share as NFS (assuming it hasn't already). Then follow the guide here: http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/5.1/Deployment_Guide/s2-nfs-fstab.html Also, you might have to install nfs-common package for it to work.

Or if you want to do it explicitly: sudo ufw allow proto tcp to any port 135 sudo ufw allow proto udp to any port 137 sudo ufw allow proto udp to any port 138 sudo ufw allow proto tcp to any port 139 sudo ufw allow proto tcp to any port 445 sudo ufw allow proto udp to any port 5353 The first few five rules are Samba. The last is zeroconf to allow other ...

Mount manually your folder, open a terminal and type: sudo mkdir /media/vbox sudo mount -t vboxsf "yoursharedfolder" /media/vbox If you want it mounted automatically every start, run: gksu gedit /etc/rc.local In the text editor window that opens, and add this as the last line: mount -t vboxsf "yoursharedfolder" /media/vbox

What comes to my mind first is to use UPnP media file sharing between your machines. You will need a UPnP server on the machine that stores the files and a UPnP client to play the contents. UPnP server/client technology is well established in Windows Media Player and allows media sharing over the network. If you are looking for a cross-platform solution ...

Solution Copied from Peretz: In a previous attempt, I installed open-vm-dkms. This was preventing the hgfs file to appear. sudo apt-get purge open-vm-dkms and reintalling vmware tools solved the conflict.

I just use a samba share. For linux I also export it as an NFS share, although it is mountable using SMB. I already share directories using both.

what worked for me was install Apache2. Just install a LAMP server (or just apache) -- sudo apt-get install apache2 Then it should work just fine.

You need to log in to the UbuntuOne website. Click on Files to see the list of files and folders. To the far right of the folder you want to share, click on More, and then Share folder.

Yes, It is possible. Please look at : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkPrintingWithUbuntu

There is a GUI for samba shares, but AFAIK there is none for nfs at this time. However, there is a request at brainstorm about this issue. Maybe you can go there and support this issue.

Often configurations are done that allow every user to have a public folder in their home directory. This way every user has control over their public files and no system files will ever be accessible there.

If you want to connect to either computer, you will need to expose the computer through your router's NAT. Set up port forwarding to port 22 on both systems. Ideally, you will want to use keypair authentication and disable password access in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. Alternatively, if you have SSH access to a third system that can be exposed to the Internet, ...
