my thunar samba share remove looks exactly like that.
if i have to edit the smb.conf anyway, then i'll prolly wind up using this admin-shares more. for now i've only been required to set up guest access, some read, some write; so it's never been a point at which i have tried to tackle yet.
but i think ultimately i'd like to create these private shares and hide some folders from the list, but i've been saving those crashes for after i get a few other things functioning like i need (audio/remote desktop).
sure is a quick fix for noob's to get guest access i think tho.
thanks again for the tutorial, i'll be giving it a go after the weekend unless i get busy in some other threads.
