comment Samba not allowing me into the workgroup?
@guntbert exactly how is that going to solve the problem if it is at a lower level? Even Dolphin doesn't work :/ I can see my father's laptop (a Windows system, running Windows 7), under "Workgroup". I can't access any files but that's okay cause I haven't set it to share any. However, with my own systems running Ubuntu I can't get into my own workgroup or access files over Samba even on the same system sharing the files.

I've tried the resolve order fix and that didn't work either.

@fossfreedom there is no such file or folder.

@hatterman I added myself to the samba and sambashare groups, restarted smbd and nmbd, restarted nautilus, tried again and still got the same problem.

@fossfreedom 4. I do have folders shared (using nautilus-share or whatever it's called). This used to work in the past. I will post the log later. I have tried the method of sharing files using smb.conf and even THAT didn't work.

@hatterman it's only Linux (there is a Windows machine in the house but I'm not trying to access it). I can't even view the files of the machine I'm on from the network. It keeps asking for this username and password even with guest sharing enabled.

comment Samba not allowing me into the workgroup?
There is no "server" really. It is just two systems (sometimes 3) that are set to share files. I can't even view my own local system because of this prompt, and enabling the guest account doesn't work (nor does entering "guest").

comment Is it possible for two processes to access the webcam at the same time?
I'll have to check this out when my other system gets back. I'll probably give an additional bounty.

Thanks! This is concise and tells me what I need to know. Nice garden btw! The bounty will be awarded when the timeout expires (21 hrs to go). Then I will delete this comment.

But... it's not supposed to ask for a password when you are trying to enter the domain, or if you enable guest access.

comment How to add Linuxmint repositories to Ubuntu?
What packages are you looking for specifically? If it is Cinnamon and Nemo you want, they are in a PPA (which is safer than adding Mint repos).

Are you still seeking an answer? I've run into this problem as well and I think it is a valid question. Do you need me to paste the error in English?

Please add instructions on how to use it (less experienced users who wouldn't have a clue what to type).

Does the file unzip on another system? It seems like you may have a corrupt file.

comment Setting up Themes in LX-Qt
@WasabiFan I forgot one step. You need KDE-system-settings to change Kwin's theme.

comment Setting up Themes in LX-Qt
Just use the package manager or sudo apt-get install kwin. It won't break anything. You can change the window manager from the settings manager. I would give screenshots but I have issues running on LXQt at the moment.
