    The video assumes that you have already installed SAMBA and also that you have already created a samba user by that name.

    Thanks very much for this video, apart from being prompted to install samba and carry out a re-boot, it worked superbly. At last I can now network with both my computers running on Mint 19.2

    How do I create a second smb user share for a young kid because there are some folders that I don't want to share with him because he is underage ?

    I've installed Nautilus, Nautilus-share, and set a password using "sudo smbpasswd -a user", but can't access it from Windows 10. Maybe the Linux VM needs a reboot?

    The user has to be created first:
    sudo useradd -s /bin/true mintgtx

    If only things worked this smoothly and quickly.

    I got all kinds of error messages, had to manually create a few directories, install Samba… and it's still not there.

    Thumb down for this video… and the dumb robot voice that talks too fast.

    🙁

    I am trying to file share between Linux computers that are set up to dual boot into Windows. Because Windows cannot see files in Linux, I have all of my documents in a separate partition. When I tried to share between computers, I am able to see the other Linux partition but I cannot see my document partition. Is there a method that I can use to share my separate documents partition?

    How do I get my Linux Mint computer to share with windows computers that are members of a homegroup? I am already connected to the internet and a printer/scanner on that network but the windows computers can't see the mint or the other way around.
