Easy folder sharing in KDE 4.4


Once more unto the KDE topic my friends, once more. This time, however, we take a look at a very useful feature that allows you to easily share out folders with a few clicks. These folders will be shared with the help of Samba and not a single line of a configuration file will have to be edited by the user. It’s a pretty sweet feature, so let’s start sharing.

First things first

Of course you are going to have to have Samba installed and running on your machine.  You will at least need:

  • Samba
  • Samba Client
  • kdenetwork-filesharing

If you do not already have those pieces of the puzzle installed, do so and then start Samba with a command similar to sudo /etc/init.d/samba start. The full path to the samba executable will depend upon your distribution.
