    Code: [Select]

    [4] Then copy and paste the following into that file:
    CODE: 
    SELECT ALL


    Code: [Select]
    <?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?>
    <!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM "avahi-service.dtd">
    <service-group>
       <name replace-wildcards="yes">%h SMB</name> ## Display Name
       <service>

  • Interesting.  Years ago it was hit or miss for me to get Samba working.  Maybe it's better now.  I did the same thing each time, and half the time it worked and half the time it didn't.

    .
    Sorry, I don't understand this post. What is gksu gedit /etc/avahi/services/samba.service ?
    .
    The second Code box makes no sense to me.
