No problem :)

Can you please remember to mark the topic (SOLVED) .. you can do this be editing the FIRST posting in this topic and changing:-

Subject: Unable to Download Updates (SOLVED)

Thanks in advance :)

20462
Theoretically it means you can share whatever that user has access to .. which basically means your home folder.

Can you remember to mark the topic solved . you can do this by editing the FIRST posting in this topic and changing:-

Subject: What do I need to have Windows(8 ) and Peppermint(4) play nice? (SOLVED)

TIA

20463
Yes I wanted it without the "#"

make the first few lines read:

Code: [Select]
[global]

## Browsing/Identification ###

# Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of
    workgroup = WORKGROUP
    force user = username

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
    server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)

Be sure to to replace "username" with your Peppermint username.

SAVE the file .. REBOOT to test.

20464
Firstly you apper to be missing the workgroup line from smb.conf

So run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

then make sure in the [global] section you have a line that reads

Code: [Select]
	workgroup = WORKGROUP

Here's the top few lines of of mine for reference

Code: [Select]
[global]

## Browsing/Identification ###

# Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of
workgroup = WORKGROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)

After adding it, SAVE the file, and REBOOT

In  the future can you please remember when marking a topic [SOLVED] you need to add that to the subject line of the FIRST posting in the topic, not the last posting.

Adding it to the last posting doesn't change the way the topic is displayed in the rest of the forum menu structure.

I'll fix this one for you .. but please remember in future .. TIA :)

Please remember to mark the FIRST posting in the topic (SOLVED), not the last one ;)

I've done this one for you.



You'd named the file "SkypeAutostart", insted of say "SkypeAutostart.desktop"

The file needs to be called

some_name_or_other.desktop

Though once you populate it correctly it will display in pcmanfm by the name in the
Name=
line.

.desktop files are odd in this respect, their ACTUAL name needs to end with .desktop .. but when you add a "Name=" line to them their name will APPEAR to change in the GUI file manager .. but not in the command line.

20467
Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
la -al ~/Public
and:
Code: [Select]
testparm -s

Can you be sure to surround  output from testparm with "code" tags when posting it (to preserve formatting) .. TIA :)

OK, run:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/.config/autostart
then
Code: [Select]
rm -v SkypeAutostart
then
Code: [Select]
gedit /home/andy/.config/autostart/skype_autostart.desktop
and make it read:

Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=SkypeAutostart
Comment=Run Skype delay script
Exec=/home/andy/.config/autostart/skype-15sec-delay.sh
Terminal=false
SAVE the file.

Log off/on to test.

Run an update from the command line .. open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), then run these 3 commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
then REBOOT.

No ..

What's causing the problem is the file that is in monochrome .. it needs fixing

But here's MY problem .. you keep saying yoou've changed it's contents, but I have NO IDEA where this file is on your system or what it's called.

You SAY it's at
/home/andy/config/autostart/SkypeAutostart
(is that a typo btw "config" instead of ",config" ?)

but your earlier listing of that directory doesn't show it
Code: [Select]
andy@andy-AMILO-Li3710 ~ $ ls -a ~/.config/autostart
.                               skype-15sec-delay.sh
..                              spideroak-custom-autostart.desktop
conky-autostart-5sec-delay.sh~  spideroak-custom-autostart.desktop~
conky-autostart-6sec-delay.sh   terminator-autostart-25sec-delay.sh
conky-autostart.desktop         terminator-autostart.desktop
conky-autostart.desktop~        touchpad-pause.desktop
docky.desktop                   Unstarted
dropbox.desktop                 xfce4-power-manager.desktop
gnome-keyring-gpg.desktop       xfce4-power-manager.desktop~
shutter.desktop
andy@andy-AMILO-Li3710 ~ $
I could easily tell you how to add a .desktop file that would autostart your script .. but you may end up with 2 .. so It would be nice to track down the file and either delete it, or fix it.

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
grep -ir skype ~/.config/autostart

20472
Remove the whole drive share.
(then reboot to restart samba)

then the "Public" folder share should work.

the
~/Public
directory is read/write/execute by everyone (777)
all other directories will be (755) so only the owner can write to them.

In your original post you said...

This is what I have in my Autostart for Skype:
Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Name=SkypeAutostart
Comment=Run Skype delay script
Exec=/home/andy/.config/autostart/skype-15sec-delay.sh
Terminal=false

You then went on to say

Quote
The file I created for Skype remains in monochrome after it is has been saved.

Where is this file, and what is it called ?

20475
Which folder have you shared ?

Try sharing the "Public" folder in your home folder

Make sure it's set to "writeable"  and "visible" is system-config-samba

and see if you can write to that directory over the network.



The "Public" folder should be set to be read/write by everyone by default.
