File sharing mint 18 mate (resolved)

Dear All,

I am trying out a clean install of mint 18 mate version and want to share files over the LAN.

Installed SAMBA and switched on shared folders.

However, I can not list the folers and when right clicking a folder the share option is not shown.

Any help apreceated.


sudo apt-get install caja-share

now see if right-clicking a folder gives you a “Share” option

double check that you have smbmount package installed.

Thanks chaps, have decided to revert to mint 17.3 mint 18 is unstable on this 5 year old laptop. Freezes and restarts on its own and very slow to boot… I really wish that they included LAN set-up as standard.

Thanks again.
