I want to use the 2nd internal drive on the Core as a picture server for my laptop. The problem is that I'm having difficulty getting Samba to work consistently. I can manually add a samba share from within ubutunu. That works fine for a few days\hours until LMCE modifies the smb.conf file on me. Obviously, I need to add the share from within LMCE so that my share doesn't get deleted.
I was able to add a share using template #1790. That seemed to work except that it doesn't make the shared folder public. If I select "System Settings"->Sharing from within Ubuntu I can see the new device in the list and samba is enabled. If I select it an click "Change" the "Share with Samba" box is checked, but the public and writeable boxes aren't. Without these boxes checked I can't view the share from my laptop. Is there an option that I can check in the web admin that will make the share public\writeable?
