This morning I try to make on-the-fly Samba Shares with Dolphin. An error message appears and it says that the folder sharing is failed. Please find the below screenshot for your reference.
Does any expert know the meaning of the error message please? Any suggestion to solve this error? Thanks in advance.
Error – Dolphin
An error occurred while trying to share folder ‘/home/jhon/suseshare’. Make sure that perl script ‘fileshareset’ is set suid root.
Error – Dolphin An error occurred while trying to share folder
I found three possible reasons and solutions why you received this message. I would recommend you try each one out to see which one works.
1. The message you received could indicate that your KDE is corrupted and has a bug.
2. It is also possible that the Dolphin version you are using is not set as suid by default. There is a version of fileshareset that is suid by default. Use the code below to reset your Dolphin version to become suid by default.
sudo chmod u+s /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/fileshareset
3. Another way is to open a terminal, type SU so that it will became a root. Type fileshareset –add path_of_shared_directory.
