No Share options for files and folders on Mate 17.2 (SOLVED)

Post by apatel » Mon Jun 29, 2015 8:44 am

Hello All,
I recently found a strange problem after installing latest 17.2 Mint Mate (32bits) on OptiPlex with 4GB Ram and Quad core CPU....

After installing this new release I tried to share a folder under my home folder. Surpisingly right clicking on folder and going to it's property shows all the tabs BUT Share! there is no Share folder or files option or tab available on any files and folders under home directory. Samba already been installed and I am able to access windows shares on the network but I can not share anything on this Mate 17.2!!

Same computer had no problem sharing any files & folders before when I was running Mate 17.1 ( Which was completely replced by clean install of Mate 17.2).

Any help to resolve this problem?
Thank you all in advance.
Amrish

To my knowledge Mint17.2 Mate hasn't been released yet only the "Release Candidate" so ....

I don't think this package is installed by default in any of Mint's Mate releases so try to install it manually:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install caja-shares
Fixed per all41's correction:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install caja-share
You will have to logoff and log on again for this to be enabled I suspect.
