I don't know or realize how much work it could be, but now it's clear that LinNeigborhood is flawky and dead, it would be nice to have that facility again, unless there is already a kinda replacement for it in the Linux community.

I can't help much in development, but testing.

A challenge? Wink

### NEW VERSION: I found some bugs & seriously rewrote it.

Near as I can tell, it looks like everything is working.

NOTE: I added the option: Samba Server = ON / OFF

Beem; You might Google to see if there's a replacement for Linneighborhood.
If you find a new one being developed (hopfully better), we'll test it for Barry.

I have started looking already yesterday, but didn't find something up to now. Will continue looking.

Will test again tomorrow. I presume I can download from the original post, it will contain the updated scripts? Very Happy

jamesbond; Yes, there were about 15 downloads, now there's 0 or more.
The download counter is reset to zero when a new file is uploaded.


Odd, the button: [Upload New Version] shows the old file's size, not the new ones.
I assumed it didn't upload the new one, so I delete & then attach the new one.

Idea for this forum (or any forum), show the date a file was uploaded.
Then it'll be relatively easy to tell if it's a new one...

Sorry took me so long to come back ...
Downloaded and try with fresh 2.16.1 livecd running in RAM.

part 1
1. install Muppy-SMB
2. install rc.samba (tar and put it into /etc/rc.d)
3. tar samba-admin
4. run samba-admin (from terminal)
5. try to add user - I can see errors on the terminal saying that /etc/samba/privite/smbpasswd does not exists
6. a new samba-admin window (same as the original one) pops-up.
7. close all windows.

part 2
8. touch /etc/samba/private/smbpasswd to create the missing file
9. run samba admin again
10. try to add user (same as one specified in 5)
11. says "user already exist", and pop-ups another samba-admin window.
12. close all windows

part 3
13. run samba admin again
14. try to add user (new user name)
15. terminal says "smbpasswd doesn't exist"
16. pop-ups another samba-admin window.
17. close all windows

part 4
13. run samba admin again
14. go to the "shares" tab
15. see that "homes" share is enabled, I click the "enable/disable" button
16. pop-ups another samba-admin window with no change in the "homes" share settings

I decided to stop testing here ...

jamesbond; I'll try it on Puppy-2.16 to see if I can reproduce your errors.

Puppy-1 & Puppy-2 shouldn't be any different when dealing with Samba.

Hi iscraigh; This looks just like what the doctor ordered! I'll tell Barry.

jamesbond; I realised the other day that I don't know if Barry will include
the Samba utility tools, I'm guessing probably not... They're size is 12MB.
The command: smbpasswd is one of them, it's 1.437 MB in size (BIG).
My GUI also uses: smbstatus, it's only 556 KB in size, but that's still large.
smbpasswd is for the Login panel, & smbstatus checks for connections.
So I'm going to to wait for the next Puppy release to see what's needed.

screenshots look cool.

how does it compare in size to linneigborhood?

sarcasm: was gtkneighborhood taken already? maybe they need to "get in line"?;

No worries. Will test again then time comes Smile

Thank you, I didn't came that far when searching for a replacement tool.

But how to install?
Quote:
Q2. What do I need to run pyNeighborhood?

Linux (of cource), samba (samba-3.0.x is preferred, built with smbmount support), python>=2.3, pygtk >= 2.6.0 (earlier releases may work but are not supported). You should also use POSIX-compatible shell (with zsh pyNeighborhood works fine). Optionally - GNU make to install pyNeighborhood system-wide. If you don't have it, you may create a config.py (simply run ./configure) and run "$ python pyNeighborhood.py" from the source tree, but be ready for some malfunction.
In any case there is lot's of support for python in Puppy. (see MU's software installer to find)
Could be a nice adventure.
