    Samba issue

    I have finally convinced my wife to install linux ( wooooooooot ) becuase of windows boot times (almost hangs everytime) and random reboots.

    So last night I installed Ubuntu on her system. I am running Ubuntu on mine. Everything is up an running fine expect for samba. I installed samba through synaptic and update the workgroup.

    The setup is the same as my Ubuntu system with samba, however when I go to network it never shows the other pcs in the workgroup, which is mine and my bsd file server. When I go to connect to server and select windows share and enter the ip address i get an error message that it doesn't know the file association (i will be able to post the full error when home work).
    What I find a little weird is if I set it to bookmark, I get the error but when I click on the bookmark it goes straight to the server and opens it up fine.

    It's not a big issue becuase I can access the server, but it's still annoying.

    Have you edited the smb.conf file? I believe it is in /etc/samba/smb.conf

    Here is a little guide on how to alter it:

    hope it helps
