(1) You shouldn't be using "sudo nautilus" - it's "gksu nautilus" but that's a side issue.
(2) It's not clear from your description what's stopping you from sharing this folder as a regular user.
Do you own the folder you are trying to share through nemo? If you are and it won't let you then you probably aren't a member of the right group. Run the following command to see if you are a member of the sambashare group:
Code: Select all
uid=1000(ian) gid=1000(ian) groups=1000(ian),4(adm),7(lp),24(cdrom),27(sudo),30(dip),46(plugdev),104(fuse),109(lpadmin),127(sambashare)
So, I should be set to share using my own id. The problem is that in Maya Cinnamon, the default file manager is Nemo, and I can't find anywhere in Nemo the option to share anything. Not in any of the menus, not in either pane of properties. If I "gksu nautilus" or even "sudo nautilus", I get a graphical file manager with "sharing options" within the right-click menu. That's just not there in Nemo. Can anyone tell me where I should look please?
