Linux

Recently upgraded to 18.04 and ended up on console?
Worry not…just a „few“ more undocumented steps and you are there…

  1. Start with:
    startx
  2. Now you probably ended up on some useless desktop. No symbols, nothing. Open the terminal by hitting CTRL+SHIFT+T and type:
    sudo apt-get install lightdm
  3. Congratulations. You’re back on your desktop
  4. Now SAMBA is not working because…fuck knows why. So install samba client:
    sudo apt install smbclient 
  5. Edit the samba config:
    sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
  6. Change workgroup = WORKGROUP to whatever it’s called where you are
  7. Add the following lines underneath:
    client max protocol = NT1
    min protocol = SMB2
  8. Congratulations you should be able to access Windows Shares now too.
