What installations

Set up Samba Server

A simple Samba Server to access the Slides Folder in local network. First create a retard user for samba, then install samba and samba commons, add retard to sambausers and let the Slidesfolder be owned by retard as well:

  1. sudo adduser --no-create-home --disabled-login --shell /bin/false smbretard
  2. sudo apt-get install samba-common samba
  3. sudo smbpasswd -a smbretard
  4. sudo chown slides/ smbretard

As the very simplest form of a smb.conf i had the guest be identified as the retard owner of the folder and grant all write rights:

   workgroup = WORKGROUP
   dns proxy = no
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 1000
   syslog = 0
   panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
   server role = standalone server
   map to guest = bad user
   guest account = smbretard
   usershare allow guests = yes

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no

   path = /home/pi/slides
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   force user = smbretard
   force group = pi
   read only = no
   create mask = 0775
   directory mask = 0775
