Thanks dotInot...I did just that.  Made a home directory with me as a valid user, and now I have access to everything I wanted (and more) on my new server.

Well, the forum search button is the magnifying glass in the upper right corner.  Sorry, but that's the only question I have an answer for, since I'm not on a #! box right now.  But there is a menu editing tool in the menu, as I recall.  VLC always opens a new instance for me too, but I don't know why.

Doesn't that give access to anyone?

#4 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » PAE or non PAE » 2014-02-14 23:04:41

Only CPU I know for sure needs non-PAE is Pentium M.  So I would say try the PAE version, and if it boots the LiveDVD you'll be OK.  If boot fails, then fall back to the non-PAE kernel.

Well, I've been messing around with smb.conf some more, and I've finally got my share directory to show up in Windows network browser.  But now I'm having permission issues.  "\\ubuntu-server\share is not accessible.  You might not have permission to use thes network resource."  That after having entered the server user name and password.

Making progress...but still hurdles to get over.

So I'm setting up a home file server based on...Ubuntu-Server.  Sorry about that, but I just wanted to see what it would be like using Ubuntu-Server instead of a desktop system for this project.

Anyway, I have Ubuntu installed on a RAID1 disk set-up, got samba installed and configured, did the following:

sudo mkdir -p /srv/samba/share
sudo chown nobody.nogroup /srv/samba/share/

sudo restart smbd

to make a shared directory.  And here is where I need help.  From Windows XP ["My Network Places">Microsoft Windows Network>workgroup>ubuntu-server] shows up in the Windows network browser, but the only thing listed in the file manager under \\ubuntu-server is "Printers and Faxes".  The shared directory I made doesn't show up.  If I SSH into the server from Windows and do ls from the command prompt, the shared directory is listed.   I installed a window manager, thinking it would make things easier for me than using only the command line.  And my shared directory shows up in a file manager on the server, just can't seem to get it to show up on clients.

Same thing if I browse the network from another Linux desktop machine.  Ubuntu-servers shows up in the list of machines on the network, but "print$" is the only directory visible.

What am I doing wrong?  Or failing to do?

Welcome to the forum...  It is "pretty nice" isn't it?

#8 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » So is there a #!Kali?? » 2014-01-21 01:40:27

Don't know if it has all the Kali tools, but PenBang can be added to CrunchBang with the script in this thread:

Thanks for mentioning these things.  I didn't even know there was such a thing as gadmin-samba, but it looks like it might come in handy sometime in my future.

#11 Re: Introductions » Hello and rolling release » 2013-11-17 04:50:05

Welcome thoshippos, and to answer your question....yes, changing #! to follow testing or unstable repo is the same as changing Debian for such.

#12 Re: Help & Support (Testing/Unstable) » [solved] Impossible install #! 11 » 2013-11-01 23:26:30

What is the size of partition #! is isnstalled on?

#13 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » Need Help with Sharing Files on Network with Router » 2013-10-24 12:21:25

If you don't already have samba instaled, you will need to install it.  Then edit the smb.conf file.  It's located in /etc/samba/smb.conf
Not very far from the top of the file you will find the line  workgroup = MSHOME...change MSHOME to the name of your windows network if it's different from the default.  Then right under that make a new line that reads "name resolve order = bcast host" (without the quotation marks, of course).

#14 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Do you use more than one web browser? » 2013-10-22 12:11:25

Once in a while I do...why, just last night I had the ocassion to use two different browsers at the same time.

Oh wait!  "...use more than one web browser" is not what you were really asking...was it?  You meant what browser do you use other than Firefox/Iceweasel...right?  The answer to that question for me is usually Chrome.

#16 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » Noob question - accessing a shared printer from Crunchbang » 2013-10-11 16:54:23

^Yeah, guess I didn't word that last post very well.  I meant samba will have to be configured so as to allow #! to connect to the Win7 machine that hosts the printer.  Then use CUPS to set up the network printer.  I have done this, several times, just not recently. ops

#17 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » Noob question - accessing a shared printer from Crunchbang » 2013-10-11 12:45:15

In addition to cups (for configuring the printer), you will need to configure SAMBA in order to share the printer on a "Windows" network.

#18 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » Unusual Youtube formatting » 2013-10-09 23:17:44

Hmmm...weird.  Try running the browser full screen and see if that makes any difference.

#19 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » Completely black screen on boot » 2013-09-19 16:46:18

Oh!...If the screen is completely black all the time, even before an OS loads, so that you can't even see the BIOS...you've had a hardware failure.  It's not a #! issue.

#20 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » Completely black screen on boot » 2013-09-18 23:29:57

Looks to me like something bad happened.

Is the "USB with #! image on it" the same drive used to install 3 days ago?

#21 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » Thank you for the Non-Pae Version! » 2013-09-14 00:13:24

I'm also a ThinkPad fan (have about 20 different models in my collection), that has several Pentium M CPUs in need of non-PAE kernel.  Of topic...but:

FYI...CrunchBang is not a rolling distro, and neither is the Debian stable branch on which it's built.

And how different is Crunchbang from Debian? If I read a Debian tutorial will things be similar here?

Crunchbang IS Debian, so any tutorial written for Debian will be useful with Crunchbang.

#25 Re: Help & Support (Stable) » Overheating Issues » 2013-08-05 17:24:20

Well...no really new suggestions, but a few questions:

Are the temps you are seeing at idle, or under some kind of load?
What model laptop is this?
Is there a gap between the CPU and heatsink?  There should not be.
Does the CPU fan work?  Have you check to be sure it's working?
