shares generated in smb.conf as writeable=no
Wanted to document an issue I hit while connecting to shares from both windows and ubuntu on my HDA.
After going through the permissions checks..
sudo chmod -R 775 /var/hda/files
sudo chown -hR _username_ /var/hda/files
I found that something else was stopping me from adding directories to certain shares. Noticing it was based on shares, it seems there may be a bug in how the Amahi Dashboard builds the smb.conf
I looked at my smb.conf (found at /etc/samba/smb.conf) and it turns out that the problematic shares had the property
writable = no
set to no instead of yes, so I changed it to be
writable = yes
on all my shares and lo and behold, access is as it should be, while still restricted users.
