I included more information in my original answer to get you started. To mark this as solved, you would accept the answer (If I recall, there should be a button for that below the up vote/down vote options.)

If you set the share to allow writing, then it can write to it. I.E. if you have writable = yes in your share's entry inside of /etc/samba/smb.conf, then clients will be able to write to it. That's assuming permissions are set for the target directory of course.

comment What language C++, Python, or Java is most supported in Precise Pangolin for game development?
I'm not sure that I would consider any of them more or less supported. Though for Java, you would need to apt-get install default-jdk to gain access to javac. In general, you would likely be working with a library like SDL or PyGame, which you would install separately anyway.

I went through with it and uninstalled/reinstalled. With the issues I had with the newest version I was putting it off, but everything is fine now. Thanks :)

To be honest, part of my apprehension stemmed from not knowing if I really needed to uninstall it. Knowing that I probably do gives me the courage to explain to my wife why I'm fiddling with the tv again.

It has been a while since I installed it unfortunately. I had an older version installed perfectly fine, I then upgraded to a newer version and that's where I had dependency issues. I removed (or so I thought) the newer version and reverted back to an older one. I used dpkg to install the current version, but I'm not sure what I used for the newer version.
