Introduction: Xubuntu in Your Local Network
Hi, in this tutorial I will show you how I have resolved a problem in xubuntu, as soon as you install it in your computer, xubuntu don't support browsing in your local network.
I used only graphic interface.
Xubuntu is a simple version of Ubuntu, particulary suitable for old computers, I have installed it into my old Pentium four that my kids use to gaming and learning.
You are seeing the beautiful desktop of Xface interface, that 11.10 xubuntu version.
This is the file manager of xubuntu: how you can see, it doesn't support network resources. How you can see the browser is thunar in stead of nautilus.
Then, we must open ubuntu software center, of course we must have a internet connection to download necessary components.
then download samba, the fundamental component for the network, in fact we reading...
Push the button to start download and the installation, wait few seconds.
Well, now going to install nautilus, read...and ..., istall, also this installing need few seconds.
Ok now close Ubuntu Software Center, unfortunately nautilus is not displayed on menu accessories,but it is again Thunar. To launch nautilus we can use the shell, I write "nautilus", you can see it supports network resources.
Or we can create a launcher: push the right button mouse on a clear place on desktop, write name "nautilus", the command "nautilus" and if you want choose an icon, this is my favorite.
Ok, now we have all necessary to browse into my local network, I have a Western Digital Tv Live connected by wire to my router and it share one hard disk.
This is the western digital, these are folders into hard disk, now I open a immage file.
This is my little princess with our cat, its name is LINUX. thank you for watching
