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 ...

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 ...

Choose the printer with a right click and tick "Share" to enable sharing.

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 ...

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.

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. ...

Willing to learn I didn't want to take the time to learn something new In my opinion that is one of the 3 things I say that people need to be willing to do in order to use Ubuntu (when coming from a Windows environment): 1. The wish/will to learn something new, 2. to ask a question if they don't know the answer or way to find/fix something and 3. to ...

On one.ubuntu.com You can share a certain file by using the button "Publish file". This option is revealed when you click the "More" button on the right. Once clicked, it will provide an URL you can share with everybody. As far as I know this doesn't work for folders. On your machine You can even share a certain file from within your UbuntuOne-Folder. ...

I just used awk,tail and head to achieve what you want: sudo arp-scan --interface=eth0 --localnet| awk '{print $1}'|tail -n +3|head -n -2 this gives the output as 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.3 as I have only these two in my Lan. Here awk '{print $1}' prints the ip address which is situated in the first column. tail and head removes unnecessary stuff like ...

Currently, sharing notes in Ubuntu One is not possible. The link you posted in your question shows that it is an idea under consideration and may or may not be actually implemented. If you really have to share your notes, then copy the contents of the notes and save it as a .txt file and share it on Ubuntu One.

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.
