I have bought a new laptop and want to transfer files from the old machine to the new one. Both machines are running Ubuntu 18.10.
I have installed openssh-server on the old machine but when I right click on file and select "Share in local network" a popup tells me to install Samba. I thought that Samba was for sharing files with a Windows machine. Is there not a way to share between two Ubuntu (18.10) machines without using Samba?
The "duplicate" linked to is very old and deals with Ubuntu 10.10. Things have changed a bit in eight years.
