I use to switch people to Manjaro.
And they use to like having some of their folders shared over Samba (or NFS or over the net)
Every time I have to Install the Thunar share Plugin
And go to the arch wiki to make those step by step console commands:
sudo pacman -S thunar-shares-plugin-manjaro
mkdir -p /var/lib/samba/usershare
groupadd -r sambashare (it is already done, but better be sure)
sudo chown root:sambashare /var/lib/samba/usershare
sudo chmod 1770 /var/lib/samba/usershare
sudo mousepad /etc/samba/smb.conf
Add to [global]:
usershare path = /var/lib/samba/usershare
usershare max shares = 100
usershare allow guests = yes
usershare owner only = yes
sudo gpasswd sambashare -a USERNAME
systemctl enable smbd nmbd
systemctl start smbd nmbd
It is not a hard work, but if it where so easy that all of it would come pre installed and configured as default It would make MAnjaro even EASIER to use.
And, last but not least to make my point: Who does not share folders with their Android or other devices?
