My mistake. I copied the Login Error and it reads:
User's $HOME/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by the user and have 644 permissions. User's $HOME directory must be owned by user and not writable by others.
All I can say is HUH??? Does this mean Linux will not allow me to share my directory? If so, why can't the $HOME directory be shared?
That's what I thought sharing was for. So, I would not have to remember a whole bunch of different directories and what was saved where.
So far, the SAMBA HowTo files do not match the default smb.conf file on my system. Even the smb man pages are different than what I see. They refer to sections and settings that don't exist and do not address the settings that do.
So I keep shooting myself in the foot with every change I try. The only thing I have been able to access across the network are my printers.
Every time I try to access the Network I keep being asked for a login and password. Nothing I type in works. I keep getting the error You must login to ****@WORKGROUP for Domain ****. There's got to be an easier way. This is too much like making Vista work with XP computers.
