Thanks for the swift response EricTRA.
1. I have used Webmin to check Linux permissions on the Raid [/mnt/md0]:
user: read/write/list - checked
group: read/write/list - checked
other: read/write/list - checked
sticky: only owners can delete files - unchecked.
ownership user: root
ownership group: root
setgid: files inherit group - unchecked.
2. Samba Server Configuration
writable - checked
visible - checked
access - allow access to everyone - checked.
3. Webmin to check the Samba share
Under security it says read/write to everyone.
4. PCManFM to check mnt/md0 permissions:
access control owner: read and write
access control group: read and write
access control other: read and write
Here is my samba config file (the INDIESTOR entry is a piece of software I've not yet fully configured yet so I've ignored that):
security = share
unix extensions = no
aio read size = 1
aio write size = 1
workgroup = workgroup
; server string = samba 3.6.3
; encrypt passwords = yes
; guest ok = no
; guest account = nobody
comment = IndieSTOR home directories
browseable = no
writeable = yes
path = %H
hide files = /.*/DesktopFolderDB/TrashFor%m/resource.frk/
veto = /.*/DesktopFolderDB/TrashFor%m/resource.frk/
; follow symlinks = yes
valid users = @indiestor-users
wide links = yes
map read only = permissions
inherit permissions = yes
force create mode = 0750
force directory mode = 0750
create mask = 0750
directory mask = 0750
force group = indiestor-users
guest ok = yes
comment = Lubuntu Raid
writeable = yes
create mode = 0777
path = /mnt/md0
directory mode = 0775
; browseable = yes
I did notice that if I create a folder on the Raid on the Lubuntu box I am able to change the folder name on the Mac, but not delete it, add to the folder or delete the contents of the folder. The same applies for a folder created by the Mac and accessed by the Lubuntu box.
TO be honest I still can't understand what a group is or how it is used but I have a feeling it may be the cause of my problems?
