mkdir -p ${USERSHARES_DIR}
groupadd ${USERSHARES_GROUP}
chown root:${USERSHARES_GROUP} ${USERSHARES_DIR}
chmod 01770 ${USERSHARES_DIR}


· Use the following /etc/samba/smb.conf:

[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP ; you can change to your own workgroup
security = share

usershare path = /var/lib/samba/usershare
usershare max shares = 100
usershare allow guests = yes
usershare owner only = yes


· Add the samba group to your user (replace your_username by your login):

usermod -a -G ${USERSHARES_GROUP} your_username
