I followed this tutorial: Using Samba in your File Manager - Manjaro to configure samba.
Any ideas? :slight_smile:

There are several topics here on the forum about getting samba to work.As far as I know nautilus-share doesn’t work in gnome.I’m guessing your wanting to share your public folder.Make sure samba is running by going into the terminal and typing sudo systemctl enable smb nmb && sudo systemctl start smb nmb.Also make sure your a member of samba by typing sudo smbpasswd -a username.In the terminal you can use nano to go into the smb.conf file with sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf.At the bottom of that file you can add
path = /home/username/Public
read only = no
valid users = username
That will give anyone with that username access to that file.Thats the only way I’ve been able to setup file sharing with gnome.You can also set up any file in your home folder by adding another file to smb.conf.
