NETWORKING Samba shares with Thunar

So I looked around everywhere to try to set up Samba (Windows) shares through Thunar. It took a bit of work, but it finally worked :-) Here are the steps:

1) Download the thunar-shares-plugin from here

2) Extract it.

3) Leave that be for the present. Open up a Terminal and type in sudo aptitude install samba intltool libthunar-vfs-1-dev libpam-smbpass. Enter your login password when prompted (You won't see any feedback. That's ok!).

4) Now go back to the folder you extracted in Step 2, right-click on it, and click on “Open in Terminal”. Note that you should be inside the folder.

5) Type in ./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable prefix thunarx-1).

6) Then type in make

7) Finally, type in sudo make install. Again, it should ask you for a password. Enter your login password.

8) Log out and log back in. You should now be able to share folders from Thunar just like you can with Nautilus!! :-)
