I have a Ubuntu laptop in my wi-fi network and I have turned on Sharing of "Documents" and "Downloads" folders.

When I go to the "Network" option in "Finder", it shows up the Ubuntu laptop and I can open it and can see that "Documents" and "Downloads" folders are there.

But the problem occurs when I try to open any of those folders. It shows me the following alert.

The operation can’t be completed because the original item for “Downloads” can’t be found.

I have enabled all the necessary permissions in Ubuntu.

Please help me.

  • Any question should always include the version of Ubuntu you are using. Please edit the question or add a flag. What version is it? It is possible the version affects the answer. – David Feb 2 at 14:09

I've solved this issue by enabling "Guest access" on Ubuntu.
