    Default KDE Control Center Samba Module

    Okay. As many have done, I did my update to 11.0 yesterday, and before wiping the root partition on my 10.3 install, I grabbed my samba configuration file as everything else I was going to need was stored safely in my home folder.

    Once 11.0 was booted up and I got rid of a few annoyances I began to set up samba, as there are others in my house that like to have access to my movies, music, etc, over the wireless.

    I replaced the configuration by simply moving my old one into the /etc/samba/ directory. Big mistake, because now I don't have it any more, and something is borked. In the KDE control centre, I can't set any options for anything as it is all greyed out. It worked fine before I put in my configuration file, but once I did that, I can't change anything at all. Also, the File Sharing module seems to have the same issue, for samba at least.

    Here is an example.

    I can use the config file, or the YaST tool, but I'd really like to have the KDE control centre modules working too. Any ideas?

    Just in case, here is my /etc/samba/smb.conf file. It's very basic because I tried removing as many options as I could to see if it fixed the control centre. The file sharing works over the network, just not the control centre module.

    [global]
    workgroup = TUX-NET
    printing = cups
    printcap name = cups
    printcap cache time = 750
    cups options = raw
    map to guest = Bad User
    include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf
    logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
    logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
    logon drive = P:
    usershare allow guests = Yes
    usershare max shares = 100
    local master = Yes
    preferred master = Yes
    os level = 65
    guest account = nobody
    add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c Machine -d /var/lib/nobody -s /bin/false %m$
    domain logons = Yes
    domain master = Yes
    host msdfs = Yes
    obey pam restrictions = Yes
    pam password change = Yes
    passdb backend = smbpasswd
    security = user

    [profiles]
    comment = Network Profiles Service
    path = %H
    read only = No
    store dos attributes = Yes
    create mask = 0600
    directory mask = 0700

    [printers]
    comment = All Printers
    path = /var/tmp/
    printable = Yes
    create mask = 0600

    [print$]
    comment = Printer Drivers
    path = /var/lib/samba/drivers
    write list = @ntadmin root
    force group = ntadmin
    create mask = 0664
    directory mask = 0775

    [netlogon]
    comment = Network Logon Service
    path = /var/lib/samba/netlogon/
    write list = root

    [documents]
    hide files = New Document.odt/New Spreadsheet.ods/lost+found/
    comment = Travis' Documents
    path = /home/travis/Documents/
    guest ok = Yes

    That smb.conf wouldn't bork the kde configurator IMHO. It's something else.
    1: do you use KDE4 or KDE3?
    2: Check in Yast --> system --> system services --> runlevels --> expert --> smb and nmb both have checkmarks in levels 3 and 5 and that both are set to Running = Yes
    3: check in Yast --> software management that you have the following RPMs:
    * Base packages: samba, samba-client, libsmb-client, yast2-samba-client, yast2-samba-server, samba-doc
    * KDE users: kdebase3-samba
    * Gnome users: nautilus-share
    * For mapping/mounting network drives: cifs_mount & pam-cifs

    Thanks for the response, I'm using KDE3, I should have mentioned that in the first post. Whoops.

    The Runlevels are correct, and I have all of the packages mentioned. (Except for samba-doc)

    I should probably mention, sharing is working,I would just like to have the ability to add or edit samba shares and settings using the control centre module, as opposed to the YaST tool and the smb.conf file.

    Sorry, can't help. I've not used that GUI.
