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.
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.
What's in your smb.conf?
[share] comment = Ubuntu File Server Share path = /srv/samba/share browsable = yes guest ok = yes read only = no create mask = 0755
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?
Don't know if it has all the Kali tools, but PenBang can be added to CrunchBang with the script in this thread:
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).
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.
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:
And to the best of my knowledge, anything based upon Debian directly is usually an "install once and never again" matter do to the rolling updates model followed by the parent Debian branch.
FYI...CrunchBang is not a rolling distro, and neither is the Debian stable branch on which it's built.
