Hi and thanks for the reply! I actually saw your reply by "accident" since I hadn't turned e-mail notifications on (I thought they'd be on by default).
These are the permissions on the 'Share' folder:
andrea@notebook ~ $ ls -lA | grep Share
drwxr-xr-x 2 andrea andrea 4096 2009-11-24 23:21 Share
So I suppose it means the folder is owned by me (duh!
) both as user and group, whereas smbguest has:
andrea@notebook ~ $ more /etc/passwd | grep smbguest
smbguest:x:1001:1001:Samba guest account:/dev/null:/dev/null
Giving 777 permissions to the folder is clearly a solution (which I tried, and of course it worked - tried creating an empty folder inside Share and it created it with smbguest:nobody ownership) but I was actually looking for a more elegant solution, and honestly I thought adding smbguest to the share's write list in smb.conf would do the trick.
In fact, why is there even a "write list" property if, ultimately, the user itself must have the permissions matching those of the folder? Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
