How do I share folders in Xubuntu like in Ubuntu? I found no settings or options to share folders on my network, I do have Samba installed. I don't know what else to try. Is there a command that I can try in terminal for Xubuntu? I do see my Xubuntu machine from other computers on my network, but shows empty when I access it on other computers. Ubuntu is more user friendly for such purpose.
Menu --> Settings --> Shared Folders
Install Samba (package name
system-config-samba). If you are using Xubuntu 13.10 then also install gksu. Then go to
Settings Manager -> Samba and add the desired shares.
Alternatively you can edit the
/etc/samba/smb.conf file and add something like this
[set share name here] path = set path here comment = set description here writeable = no browseable = yes read only = yes guest ok = yes
