Trying to share between 2 xubuntu machines on the same network:
shares-admin from here didn't work initially - "Sharing services are not installed". Tried
sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server from here, now means I can open
shares-admin, unlock it, try to add folders, and it crashes with
Opening Samba from the menu gives:
Failed to execute gksu system-config-samba. Failed to execute child process "gksu"
sudo apt install gksu
Package gksu is not available
Can't edit the shortcut in the menu because although the icon appears and is clickable, the entry isn't present in menu editor.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/system-config-samba", line 45, in module
File "/usr/share/system-config-samba/mainWindow.py", line 121, in init
self.basic_preferences_win = basicPreferencesWin.BasicPreferencesWin(self, self.xml, self.samba_data, self.samba_backend, self.main_window)

Does anyone have any tips for how to setup sharing on Xubuntu 18.10 & 18.04? This seems like it should be really simple and has immediately become nightmarish. Thanks.
