samba problem

Hey guys, I reinstalled my Lubuntu 14.04.  Everything's working except
samba.  I used to be able to share a folder in my Lubuntu system with my
android phone.

I installed cifs-utils thru Synaptic.  I got these two folders:


Both folders contain the file smb.conf

Is this normal? If I'm going to edit smb.conf, do I edit both of them?
Because that's what I did.

I created a folder in desktop called 'temp', then I added the following in
the two smb.conf files:

comment = temp
path = /home/user/Desktop/temp
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes
writeable = yes
create mask = 0755

I used to be able to see the contents of "temp" in my Android phone,
provided both my Lubuntu computer and my Android phone are connected to the
same wifi network.

Now I can't anymore.  I also don't remember having to edit two smb.conf
files.  It was just one.

Your help is highly appreciated. Thank you.
