External HDD’s properties, – Error window appeared

Yesterday when I was just looking up my external HDD’s properties, the following error window appeared.

At first I liked to consider that as a bug.

But from various forum postings I came to realize this is something with my Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit). As I am not an expert I can’t fix it up.

Please help me.

There was an error while getting the sharing information

'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare: cannot open usershare
directory/var/lib/samba/usershares. Error No file directory
Please ask your system administrator to enable user sharing.

Hi Matthew,

It may be a bug, restarting your PC may solve this problem.

 If it did not work, then try to put this symbol ; instead of symbol in the portion-

"usershare owner only = False"

Now save it and restart Samba by using

I hope it will work.

Thanks.

Hi Matthew Jamesy,

Hope that my message finds you well.

For me I don’t know if this will affect your applets, it is a different bug.

Make the directory as the following in sudo:

Sudo > mkdir > p > /var/lib/samba/usershares

Also please take a look on the following URL and see what people say with this experience:

Hope that this will help you.
