Fedora / samba file permissions

drwxrwxrwx   2 guest1   guest1   4096 Mar 23 00:28 guest1
drwxrwxrwx   2 guest2   public   4096 Mar 23 01:35 guest2

guest1 works fine.

but guest2 is a problem.  When I log into his share - I see a load of linux files there.
How do I change this?

Do you want to a folder where both grahamr and guest1 would share files?

If so, why don't you put both of them into the same group.  Then give the folder the same group

#So lets say you want to make a group common

useradd common

#Add both the users to this group
usermod -G common grahamr
usermod -G common guest1

#lets say /share is the folder that they want to share
chown :common /share
chmod g+rwx /share

Open in new window

Now both the users can share files in this particular folder
whats the permission of those linux file

go to guest2

cd guest2

then type

ls -al

copy and past few out put here

1.setfacl -m u:guest2: rwx /shared

2.chown -R guest2.guest2 /shared/
