Sharing in Kubuntu


Hi Everyone,

Just installed kubuntu a couple of days so i'm still finding my feet (as some may already know from other thread(s)

When i go to system settings -> sharing (to set up my file sharing), i get a message saying "Changes in this action requires root access. Click the "administrator mode" button to allow modifications."

So when i click administrator mode and put my password is... i still can't access anything in the sharing screen? I get the following screen:

Do you want to share files on a network with other computers ? That is what that facility is for. You are probably not connected to a WAN or LAN hence the unactive screen.
