  • Linux Lite: 5.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Core i9-10850K CPU @ 3.60GHz

  • MEMORY: 32Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: nVidia GeForce GTX 1650

  • Kernel: 5.x

What 'Network Share Setting' doesn't do (but could) is
a) create the share directory /home/username/share, and set permissions.
b) add the user to /etc/smbusers ie. <username> = <username>
c) give the smbuser a password, with sudo smbpasswd -a username


Agreed, we could certainly do this better, and will look to in the future. Overall sharing between windows and linux has been traditionally difficult, we'll always aim to simplify the process :)

@Yoru3,

Thanks for taking the time to write-up your review of LL and for constructive suggestions.  Much appreciated and input like that from users is key to LL's continued improvement over time.

Thank you for your feedback, to address your points:

1) Keyboard settings - Has been brought up many times, in many posts. We're yet to find a solution.

2) Language Support - This is related to point 1. Therefore we provide a comprehensive tutorial in the Help Manual.


Just as a matter of interest, do the gurus behind each distro ever "talk" to each other. I get the impression that in some areas LL is having to reinvent the wheel as it were? My usual comment that the default set up process for Mint & Puppy  means that keyboard & Language work straight off, and the problem with Google Earth and video card drivers does not raise its head.  This is not meant to be a criticism but  hopefully a helpful prompt??  Says he who has never coded anything in his life:)

Some devs do communicate with each other, remember linux is all about choice. It's a catch22, unify and seek common ground and users will benefit (self explanatory), keep the status quo and the users benefit (give people options). Continued discussion on this best suited to On Topic.
