Share folder (Solved)

Post by mintsivasdpi » Tue Nov 13, 2018 1:35 pm

Hi I have Linux mint 17.3
I have created two user accounts . One is admin and another as kids login without password.
How to share a folder between two users ? I had tried by right clicking on folder setting share. But still it doesn't work.

Those sharing options are for between machines, not users, you need to change permissions.
Look here, https://askubuntu.com/questions/291501/ ... ocal-users

and here, https://askubuntu.com/questions/142569/ ... ween-users

Permissions are important, if you want better understanding of them maybe watch this video,

Seems Mint 17 didn't have that comand pre-installed. Install it via:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install acl

Weird, so it was pre-installed after all, but you're missing the command, wonder how that happened. Try re-installing it:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install --reinstall acl
Note that you can also use the solution linked by rickNS above.

Same error repeated. Pls suggest any other software which can be used to share folder between two user accounts.

That should be impossible. You are not just making a typo, right? I can't really read your sideways screenshots, but in case of doubt copy & paste this:

Code: Select all

sudo /bin/setfacl -m d:o:rwx /home/Shared\ newfold/

I am sorry. Same error. Please suggest any softwares to share folder between two user accounts.

Unable to follow rickNS solutions. Confusing. You can do remote log in too and help via desktop sharing and help me pls.

The package has a the file, so we just need to get it installed properly: https://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/i386/acl/filelist
So if re-installing didn't help, remove it and then install it again:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove acl
sudo apt-get install acl
Otherwise I already said that you can follow the guide linked by Rick above for a different approach.
