I recently had quite a hard time setting up a Windows share using Samba on a Mythbuntu box so here are some links and reminders. I tried several GUI apps but none worked with consistant results.
- Start from scratch to create a new share
- Completely reset Samba
sudo apt-get purge samba samba-common sudo rm -rf /etc/samba/ /etc/default/samba sudo apt-get install samb
