I just got into the linux thing. I have VL6 gold installed on an older computer which really brought some speed out of it. The problem is I can't for the life of me figure out how to share files through samba and such. I've tried various settings but nothing is working yet.
I downloaded the thunar share tab plugin package, following the "how to" to a T, I installed it just as was said, but it will not show the extra tab in the folder I create. I made sure it is my folder, and I tried restarting, even formatted the drive and started all over.
Next problem I faced is the samba doesn't seem to work right. When I open a terminal and run vlsmbmnt from root it comes back with this error. I found a video how to on fixing it, followed the extremely well layed out video to a T including installing "bind" and I still get the same error! I don't know what is going on, I can find at least some issues yet all the workarounds aren't working correctly for me. Here is the video I followed. http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Tutorial/VL60/Trouble-Shooting/sambafix/sambafix.htm
In puppy linux I was able to figure out file sharing in a couple minutes, I've been working on trying to share files ALL day in vector. I do like the vector layout better though. Anyway, please help.
