Is it possible to share files using ubuntu that are stored on an NTFS partition? I am able to see the directory on other machines, but when I click to mount the folders I get the error saying the folder is unmountable.
I forced those looking at the NTFS files via the network to have the same permissions as me by running the following command to open the samba conf file,
gksu gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
then added the following line to the [global] section,
force user = what-ever-your-user-name-is
then I restarted samba with,
sudo service smbd restart
