General Help & Advice / Re: Trouble with samba shares at bootup

Is there a way to have samba automatically allow sharing without me entering the password.

So you want the shares automounted ?

Are these share accessible anonymously, or do they require a username and password ?

Unfortunately, your suggestion did not work.  The dpkg error summary is:

Errors were encountered while processing:
 linux-headers-4.4.0-81-generic
 openssl
 linux-headers-generic
 linux-signed-generic
 linux-generic

I'm now having problems, I can't get the shares working at all now.
I know I've gone a little overkill with the samba programs I've installed, so could you advise me on what I really need,instead of having all four programs.

It's sorted!

I connected my laptop to the TV via the HDMI cable which was connected to the desktop PC in the bedroom and it worked, there was a signal going through to the TV, so the problem was not the HDMI cable.

I then connected it all back up to the desktop PC in the bedroom and had another look at the monitor settings.
something made me click in te tick box of the TV in the front room and it activated (it was already 'ticked') which was the strange thing.

everything is now working.

The cable is 10m and going up into the attic then across to the bedroom then into the bedroom.
I will be testing it with my laptop, I will be connecting the HDMI to the laptop from the bedroom end to see if it's a problem with the cable ot the desktop PC.

I'm trying to view shares from the PC in the bedroom to the laptop in the front room.
Samba is set up OK. I am able to view shares on the laptop. only after I open Gadmin Samba and enter the password.

Is there a way to have samba automatically allow sharing without me entering the password.

Try this;
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0.bak
then see if
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
finishes without error ?

If it does, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libssl1.0.0 openssl

If it doesn't, move it back with
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0.bak /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.0
