It's the second sentence of your very first post:
The shares work until I restart the computer and then they are gone.
And the very first image of your last post.
When you open caja to your home folder contents you are expecting to see the "share emblem" on the Music, Videos, and Pictures folder aren't you? And when you don't see them you think they are no longer shared, right?
That is not the case. It's a bug - well I'm pretty sure it's a bug. THe only way to convince yourself that it is still shared is if you use the caja smb://reljoy thing that you now bookmarked or run the following command after you login:
- Code: Select all
What's ironic about all this is back in the Golden Age of Linux ( i.e., Gnome2 ) there was a similar bug with Nautilus and Usershares where you would create a share from the file manager, it would change emblems, you would reboot, and the emblems would be gone. As it is now, the folder would still be shared it just wouldn't have the emblem that it was shared. That was eventually fixed I think.
The irony is I was the one that submitted the bug report on it back then:
Nautilus Shared Folder Status: viewtopic.php?f=166&t=27667
It fits your symptoms perfectly. The shares off your home folder ( Music, Documents, Videos, etc.. ) itself would be missing emblems. Any subfolders to those main folder would have the share emblems.
That was three and a half years ago
