    sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

    here is a really basic setup that worked for me in the past, you can add things one at a time later to make it a bit more secure/add features:

    so basically delete everything in the smb.conf file and paste the following and edit it to meet your workgroup

    [global]
    workgroup = SIMPLE

    [test]
    comment = For testing only, please
    path = /export/samba/test
    read only = no
    guest ok = yes
    Bodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
    Dell Studio 17, Intel Graphics card, 4 gigs of RAM, E17
