Re: Networking 2 computers

OK, I installed the following scripts

$ sudo apt-get install nemo-share
$ sudo apt-get install samba system-config-samba cifs-utils winbind

Rebooted them, still nothing with the printers.
There has got to be a way to network in LM19.1 Cinnamon, anyone have any ideas, I will try anything (almost).

Re: Networking 2 computers

I tried it on my main cpu but I don't get any response from samba. Shouldn't I get a GUI display? I have never used samba so I am unaware of what I am supposed to see.

Re: Networking 2 computers

Thanks for the info. If I am not mistaken 'NoMachin' is a program that lets you control another cpu over the internet. I want to network my computers.

Re: Installing VMWare Workstation

It worked, it installed the PRO version so I will just try it and than get the free version since I don't have that much Windows software to run.
