So I've been working on this for a day or so with no luck and Google has failed me.
I'm simply trying to get Samba working on my Raspian Pi. I believe I have correctly installed Samba, edited the "smb.cnf" file per typical instructions and now am trying to restart Samba - to no avail.
sudo service samba restart
sudo service smb restart
sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart
all to no avail. I'm really confused as I believe that using Samba on a new Raspian image is supposed to be quite simple.
I also tried: "sudo service samba status" and get:
Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory)
Acdtive: inactive (dead)
