Problem with samba share


I want to share a folder on my Fedora linux pc with a Windows 8 pc in the same network.

I have followed this guide :

but I am not able to see my share on my Fedora linux pc from the other Windows 8 PC.

This is my /etc/samba/smb.conf :

        workgroup = mygroup
        server string = HP Samba
;       netbios name = MYSERVER

;       interfaces = lo eth0
;       hosts allow = 127. 192.168.12. 192.168.13.

;       max protocol = SMB2
        path = /home/Jonas/Desktop/My-Documents
        read only = no
;       browseable = yes
        guest ok = yes

The workgroup name is the same as the workgroup name on the Windows PC.

Firewall on Fedora linux pc is down.

I do get the following output when restarting smb :
apr 27 12:27:49 jonashp.domain.local systemd[1]: Starting Samba SMB Daemon...
apr 27 12:27:49 jonashp.domain.local smbd[4324]: [2015/04/27 12:27:49.686796,  0] ../source3/param/loadparm.c:3034(lp_set_enum_parm)
apr 27 12:27:49 jonashp.domain.local smbd[4324]: WARNING: Ignoring invalid value 'share' for parameter 'security'
apr 27 12:27:49 jonashp.domain.local smbd[4324]: [2015/04/27 12:27:49.687187,  0] ../source3/smbd/server.c:1286(main)
apr 27 12:27:49 jonashp.domain.local smbd[4324]: standard input is not a socket, assuming -D option
apr 27 12:27:49 jonashp.domain.local systemd[1]: Started Samba SMB Daemon.
I thought it would be that simple...

Is that your full smb.conf file? If not, please post it.

Also, try uncommenting the browseable = yes option
