Easy file sharing option in gnome grayed out
I'm using Gnome for the first time (after a long time with KDE) and am trying to share a folder the easy way. After installing nautilus-share (and samba, samba-common and samba-common-bin)I can right click on a folder and make it shared. Problem is that the option 'Guest access (for people with no user account)' is always grayed out.
On some Ubuntu forums I saw people fix it by purging and reinstalling samba but that didn't work for me.
I know how to manually setup a share in samba, just want to figure out why this isn't working and how to get this going.
I had a look in /usr/share/doc/nautilus-share/examples/smb.conf and renamed smb.conf to smb.bak and copied the example to /etc/samba/smb.conf. I added everything from smb.bak that doesn't set folder permissions. Final file looks like:
Everything works fine now.
