Question about Computers & Internet
I am new to Linux Ubuntu. I can connect to my window shares from Ubuntu but my windows computers cannot see my Laptop loaded with Ubuntu.
The message I get is" sharing services are not installed" You need to install at least either Samba or NFS in order to share your folders.
Both "install unix netwoks support(NFS) and
Install windows networks support(SMB) are ticked and when I click install I get the same message.
I think Samba common is already installed.
I am using Ubuntu 7.10
Does linux have c: d: etc drives as windows or is it folders?
How do I get to the command prompt to type Linux commands?
I am also having trouble connecting to the internet; is there something like dial-up networking on ubuntu. I do not know how to connect to my service provider.
How can I get my modem to dial my service provider?
Nice to see more people using Linux and Ubuntu. For information on how to share your Ubuntu folder to linux, over file sharing click here
You basically only need to right click the folder you want to share, in Ubuntu, then enable sharing and when prompted to install services, tick the box called 'Install Windows network support'
Hope this helps.
ps: if you haven't seen the Ubuntu community documentation, click here
