Hey people, back after a year of absence -.-‘ …. sorry about that…. Uni started….. visa problems…… exam issues blah blah blah blah blah….

Anyways……. Lets get started!  Sharing files between Windows and Linux! This for the amateur IT guy/girl can seem a daunting task, specially given the fact of about different partitioning methods, different file systems etc..

Trust me, there’s no shame in admitting that you just couldn’t find a way to make Windows and Linux play nice with each other over the network.. BUT! when you seriously look at it, it’s no that big of a problem..The main cause behind all this mayhem is rather simple…  We’ll call it the “language”. You see, windows computers talk to each other in a different language for file sharing and linux computer’s talk in a different language.  Dont worry though, all is not lost, you see, linux box’s have a secret trick up their sleeves, if you ask a linux box really nicely, they’ll learn how to speak in WINDOWS!

Ok ok, all the crappy synonyms aside, all you really need for file sharing between linux boxes and window’s boxes is a software called “samba”, and no, it’s not something like VLC where you have to install programs on both ends. Samba is actually a “daemon”, daemons are like windows background services, what it does is, it acts kinda like a interpreter in between the 2 machines ( i think lol ! ).

Ok , lets get to work!

Ok so your a Newbie/Noob/beginner/amature in the linux scene.

Ok so you got your OS installed with the step by step wizard and now you try to install your Programs.

See Installing Programs in Linux.

But then ! you get your first error message. Trust me, being a kind of new guy to linux my self i KNOW how frustrating it is to get your programs installed in linux with it’s rather un-understandable error messages.

A very common error most people get when trying to install a new program in the NEW linux installation is

bash: make: command not found

Ok you can stop your uncontrollable fit form anger form this point on wards. 🙂

Because, Well it’s actually a simple error that can be fixed easily!

I dont know about you guys , but as soon as I installed my fresh new Ubuntu 8.10 intrepid ibex release on my desktop computer, the first problem i faced was how to share files between linux and my windows Vista laptop! I went and checked in linux, there was no “Share” button in the folder properties pane.

So After doing a bit of reading i came to understand that in order to share files between Windows and Linux Computers you have to install a Program(deamon) called samba!

It’s actually quite easy ! so lets get started!

Ok this article doesn’t really tell people exactly how to hack ( i think thats illegel and would most likely get me kicked out of Word press.) Anyways i found this great artice from a blog that explained (very in -dept), how he found a hacker inside his friends Linux server and how he traced it to the hackers residence. All the credit goes to that Arthur. I just thought e aught to be more well know for his hard work.
