I wrote tutorials on samba sometime ago but some peoples found that is not useful for them or the method couldn't work properly for them, I also made video on samba sharing.
Now I made complete tutorial on samba configuration to share you data from Ubuntu to Windows and also Windows to Ubuntu, Its mean you can access your Ubuntu shared data from Windows and Windows Shared data from Linux Ubuntu with/without permissions. Permission is up to you, if you want to set permission or not.
Install Samba on Ubuntu/Linux Mint open Terminal (Press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy the following commands in the Terminal:
I made this tutorial on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Windows 7, It is working on all Ubuntu versions and all Windows Versions.
Method 1: How to access Ubuntu/Linux shared data from Windows
Method 2: How to access Windows shared data from Ubuntu/Linux
>> First of all How to access Ubuntu Shared Data from Windows.
Now go to Dash and search for 'Samba' then open it. As shown in picture.
When Samba Server Configuration open, Click on 'Add +' button then click on browse >home >select user.
Note your Ubuntu/Linux Machine IP Address
When you enter the username and password your shared folder will open. You can write/delete/modify whatever you want to do (It's up to your permission implementations).
