I configured the samba service correctly and I can see the share folder from a windows computer but when I want to share the folder downloads, documents or any other from my personal folder I can not, I deploy context menu and normally you would see in ubuntu sharing options but in elementary I do not find such an option, what package would be missing to add the function to this file manager? Also I would like to know which is the web page of the file manager developer as it doesn't give much information in the app store, the name of the file manager is very generic.
You have to add this ppa on your repositories : http://ppa.launchpad.net/yunnxx/elementary/ubuntu/
The elementary-shared-folder is in this repository :
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yunnxx/elementary $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install elementary-shared-folder
Sharing Options in Files
I don't believe this is possible directly from Files.
The configuration files for your samba server can be modified with a text editor or graphically with the system-config-samba utility or GNOME Files, packaged as
nautilus, with the nautilus-share plugin as you mentioned.
The Ubuntu Wiki's Samba Server Guide serves as a good reference for the various methods of configuring a samba server.
It sounds like you're used to using GNOME Files, so I've included the command to install it with the share plugin here.
sudo apt -y install nautilus nautilus-share
Plugins for Files can be found with the following command via apt, but this only shows a Dropbox plugin at the moment.
sudo apt search pantheon-files-plugin-
The File's GitHub repository can be found here.
