I know I am very new to ubuntu. I’ve made the switch almost completely and am very rarely using windows anymore.
However I have a file server setup at home and was accessing it from windows xp mapping it as a network drive. The problem I had when starting to use Ubuntu was that although I could access the files I couldn’t save them back to the server.
I found the answer in the samba config file. Permissions are everything.
I may be wrong, but to mind there appears an error of logic between lines 54-82, then 83-87.
