I want to know how to share any folders between android and ubuntu. I've got it with WindowsXP. On my Android phone I've installed the app ES File Explorer. I've created a folder in the PC and it is shared. With the app from cellphone I can find the shared folder but when I try open it, the app says 'The account has no permissions' I don't know how to give these permissions.
Ohk.. I was trying the same thing, below is what worked:
In nautilus, right click on the folder you want to share and select 'sharing options', where you enable sharing the folder. In the same window, there are 2 other options: 'Allow others to create and delete files in this folder' and 'Guest Access'. Check both the options.. Exit Nautilus (on computer) and ES file explorer (on android phone). Reopen ES file explorer and connect to the shared folder again... That should fix the issue...
Dowload and install the android app
Airdroid from Playstore..
It will share files between the Ubuntu pc and your android phone via wifi.
You could give permission to a folder in two ways: (do them in ubuntu)
Elevate your permission. Its always better to have superuser(sudo) permissions for your account if you own it. How do I grant sudo privileges to an existing user?
Grand permission only to that file or folder. How to change permission to folders and subfolders?. To do chmod you might need root user password.
