comment Synaptic says Samba installed, can't launch it
Thank you. I switched from the Ubuntu desktop to the Lubuntu desktop and installed samba from the Lubuntu Software Center and it installed and "samba" is now accessible from System Tools. I would like to mark this as "solved" but I cannot find the trick for that.

comment SAMBA — Cannot access Samba share from XP
@Pat: It's a clean install of 12.04 and I have not configured ufw or iptables so the firewall is set up per install defaults. I can access that shared folder from another Ubuntu machine, and as mentioned, I can also access the print$ share from the XP machine.

comment How to gain write permissions to a remote Windows folder?
SOLVED. I didn't have sharing set up properly on the Windows folder -- I needed to permit network users to change files. Duh.

@SauravKumar: Thunar does go into the network and it finds the shared folders on the Windows machine. However, I don't have write privileges there -- Thunar says "permission denied." So I gotta give myself privileges there, which is where I started this thread.

@SauravKumar: Interesting . . . the icon that Nautilus chooses to show for /home/me/.gvfs is the File icon, not the Folder icon. And when do Go > Network, Nautilus says "Nautilus cannot handle `network' locations".

@SauravKumar: Yes, .gvfs is visible through Terminal. Looks like I have Nautilus already installed on this machine although it doesn't appear on any of the launcher menus. (Have to figure out how to get it to show, that's another thread.) Anyway, Nautilus does show .gvfs, but none of the directories in it that are visible with Terminal. According to Nautilus, .gvfs is empty.

@SauravKumar: Well, I only have pcmanfm on this Lubuntu machine. It's unclear to me why pcmanfm would display the other hidden files but not .gvfs. Science is baffled!

@SauravKumar: thanks, didn't know why it was suggested that I add the "&" to the command. Anyway, sudo pcmanfm opened the file manager, pointed to my /home/jack directory, and a box stating "Permission Denied."Clicking "OK" makes the error warning go away. It defaulted to showing the hidden ".name" files and folders, but as I said previously, .gvfs is not displayed. I toggled ctrl-h the display but .gvfs remains undisplayed.

sudo pcmanfm &' returned [1] 5489`. gksu pcmanfm asked for su password, then gave me a file manager window, but /home did not show the .gvfs folder to drill down into (all other hidden folders were visible), Go > Network Drives gave an "operation not supported" error.
