Setup automatic share network in my home

Every computer in my home runs Ubuntu 12.04 We have a wireless network setup. I want to be able to share files & printer wirelessly over the network. But I am a total idiot when it comes to networking & do not have the slightest clue! Everything I can find on the subject assumes you are using 1 or more windows devices you want to connect toyour Linux machine. They say sambe of course. But I dont want to connect Windows devices. I would like to have every device automaticaly connect and be discoverable on the network by all other devices. Can someone help me do this in laymens terms???? I changed the etc/network/file according to instructions found here: Then ran this code :

`sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart`

Here is the result:

`* Running /etc/init.d/networking restart is deprecated because it may not enable again some interfaces

* Reconfiguring network interfaces... RTNETLINK answers: File exists Failed to bring up eth0. [ OK ]
What am I doing wrong?

I can see MY computer on MY computer, but nonre of the other computers that I set up.

Personally I use Dropbox to easily share files between my various linux computers (home & work). If you want to avoid samba, how about nfs?


PS Try 'sudo service networking restart'


home, linux, network
