follow these steps:

sudo mkdir /home/Share
sudo chmod 777 /home/Share
sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

Make sure to have this line :

security = user

Then add your folder is your config like this in Share Section:

[Share]
    comment = Shared files
    path = /home/public
    public = yes
    writable = yes
    create mask = 0777
    directory mask = 0777
    force user = nobody
    force group = nogroup

that's all
