Samba password Mint 19

Post by mcysr » Sat Jul 28, 2018 5:01 pm

Had to set Samba password in Mint 19, after creating shares and being prompted to install Samba, in order to get Samba working to share folders:

Code: Select all

sudo smbpasswd -a username

I'm placing this here mostly so I can find it again, took awhile to find this. Replace username with your username.

Additionally for mangled Samba file names:


Open your smb.conf file (usually at /etc/samba/smb.conf), using root, and add the following line under [global]:

mangle case = no
mangled names = no
