  • Was it working before now or is this the first you noticed it? Some things to check:

    1. Ensure your system is updated (sudo pacman -Syu)
    2. Ensure you have “gnome-user-share” package installed
    3. Check in gnome control center under “Sharing” and ensure its enabled
    4. Restarting both PCs involved, one at a time, is a good idea.

    Hopefully it was one of those easy fixes

    Regards,

  • first tnx for your reply
    i do what u said but it didn’t work
    becuase the samba wont start and in systemctl show failed next to the samba.service
    after that i found a package in aur : [aur.archlinux.org/packages/nautilus-share/][0]
    and i got this error when try to share a folder

    Samba's testparm returned error 1: Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf  
    rlimit\_max: increasing rlimit\_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)  
    Processing section "[homes]"  
    Processing section "[printers]"  
    Loaded services file OK.  
    WARNING: 'workgroup' and 'netbios name' must differ.

  • It should work without the extra package you installed. Try removing and then reinstalling samba to ensure you are using the default settings. Use this command:

     sudo pacman -Rddn samba && sudo pacman -S samba --force
    

    As long as your windows computers have the default workgroup setting you should see them once all systems have been restarted. Please let me know the result

  • Im confused…

    I’m pretty sure I have nautilus. I went into the terminal and ran:

    sudo pacman -S gnome-user-share
    

    but I still do not have the ‘Sharing’ tab when going into the ‘Properties’

    I noticed in the ‘Sharing’ section within the system settings that I now have Personal File Sharing and Bluetooth Sharing. I have enabled Personal File Sharing - still can’t share a folder.

    Also when I select ‘Browse Network’ I do not see my Windows shares. How do I know i’m on the same workgroup?
    I also tried to ‘Connect to Server’ by typing in my Windows share (ie. //10.0.0.10/share/ and cifs://10.0.0.10/share and smb://10.0.0.10/share) but it would only accept dav:// connections (Connect button becomes enabled when I type dav:// only)

    So as of now, in summary, I have no idea how to:
    1. Connect to a Windows share using ‘Connect to Server’
    2. Share a folder in Antergos
    3. And how to browse network shares on my workgroup by using ‘Browse Network’.

    Thanks for your help.

    When it comes to networking, there really isn’t one definitive answer. I’m sure we can get you up and running though! Are any of the other systems running Windows 7 or 8? If so, you need to make sure to disable Homegroups as samba does not support it.

    Check here for details:
    [http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/windows/3434911/how-share-folders-without-homegroups-in-windows-7/][2]">[http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/windo][3] … windows-7/

    Now once you have done that go ahead and restart the windows machines while you make sure Antergos is ready to share. You will need to have these packages installed: samba, libwbclient, gvfs-smb, gnome-user-share, & cifs-utils. Now tell systemd to start samba at boot: “sudo systemctl enable samba” Restart your system. You should now be in business! One thing I forgot to mention is that these instructions assume all machines are using default settings for dhcp, workgroups, ips, etc. Please let me know if its working for you!

  • Thanks for your reply lots.0.logs

    I already had those packages installed. Only difference I did was as you said, start the samba service, restart, and BAM I see all my windows network shares by going to ‘Browse Network’

    So, to update:
    As of now, in summary, I CAN:
    1. Connect to a Windows share using ‘Connect to Server’
    3. Browse Windows shares on my workgroup by using ‘Browse Network’.

    I still cannot:
    3. Share a folder in Antergos (anything BUT the public folder)

    Any ideas?

  • Yep! You just need “yaourt nautilus-share” then restart nautilus, right click, Share!

    Cheers!

  • WOOHOOO!!! I now see ‘Sharing Options’

    Yet another issue (WTF)…

    When I installed nautilus-share it then said:

    Please add the line ‘include = /etc/samba/usershare.conf’
    in the [global] section of /etc/samba/smb.conf and restart samba.
    All users that want to use nautilus-share MUST be in the ‘users’ group.

    After browsing through to /etc/samba/ i noticed there was a smb.conf.default file (not smb.conf) so I did

    sudo cp smb.conf.default smb.conf
    

    Then added include = /etc/samba/usershare.conf to the global section of smb.conf

    Then I restarted samba by doing

    sudo systemctl restart samba
    

    And now I am getting this when trying to make ‘Downloads’ folder a share:
    ‘net usershare’ returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name “Everyone” to a SID. The connection was refused. Maybe smbd is not running.

    I then added include = /etc/samba/usershare.conf to smb.conf.default - same thing ^^

    Anymore ideas?

  • Try changing [global] “security = share” to “security = user” and instead just pre-define allowed users with “valid users = yourusername”

    Regards,

  • from the arch wiki
    Nautilus and Nemo
    In order to access samba shares through Nautilus or Nemo, install the gvfs-smb package, available in the official repositories.
    Press Ctrl+l and enter smb://servername/share in the location bar to access your share.
    The mounted share is likely to be present at /run/user/your_UID/gvfs in the filesystem.
    Thunar and PCManFM
    For access using Thunar or PCManFM, install gvfs-smb, available in the official repositories.
    Go to smb://servername/share, to access your share.

    when I installed gvfs-smb everything worked!
