    start samba at boot


    Hi all.
    I mostly use lxde from login. I would like if samba started automatically but don't know quite how to go about this. I'm ok with a little command line.

    I have the most recent ubuntu distro, all up to date, running on an imac ppc g3.
    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks . . .

    I don't know much about samba at all, but here is my obvious way to start it at ubuntu boot up.

    Hit Super Key, type and choose "Startup Applications", click add, then add command to start it, and also labeling name and any comments accordingly...(google command for start up, IDK..)

    This should make it run on simple ubuntu boot up, but if this won't do what your asking, then I wouldn't know where to begin.

    If this doesn't help, I'm sure I can put a few links on samba setup for you and see if that can help. Since I don't use or even know much about it, sorry!

    OK, so I looked up a little more about it, and I don't think that way will work since it uses passwords I presume.

    Try this link, but read it all first cause I don't know if all the answers they give worked for some people, might have to fiddle around. --->How to start samba service at boot up ? - Ubuntu Forums

    Or this one... --->[lubuntu] Autostart Samba On Boot - Ubuntu Forums
