Re: About Maya b43 solution

did you install it in safe mode? I did and had the same error. I then gave up and went back to the last LTS. I may give it another try when xfce version is released, however i had same issues with xubuntu 12.4.

Re: Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" released!

I think Mint 12 should of spent more time in RC for testing. IMHO this is a big step back from the high quality releases that Mint has had in the past. I have been an avid Mint user for years, allowing me to remove all MS os/apps of my home pc's, so im no light user. However Mint 12 has put me back ...

net usershare info
Thanks that is exactly what i was looking for to list the shares.

It would be nice for nautilus to have a center point to manage all the shares setup by nautilus right clicking.

Re: Managing Nautalis

Sorry, thought I mentioned I used the right click nautilus way to share. Is there a gui to manage /var/lib/samba/usershares?

Im getting stuck on the nice gui way vs the old school way, Mint is spoiling me. Must be my old age.

Managing Nautalis [SOLVED]

Is there some central point to manage nautilus samba shares?

I want to remove a shared folder and its not apparent where it is. I have installed system-config-samba but i guess this is for samba shares only, and the nautilus right click way of sharing does not show on this.

Thanks
