@ Mathias Gug

Is that what you did need?

Perhaps that can help you: Public shares inside a directory (in this
case it is "/home/farber/") are possible only if the access to the
*whole* directory is allowed for everyone. This is not normal. It should
be enough to allow access to the share. It had always been like that
before, and it is so in Intrepid again, but not in Hardy. Nobody would
like to set his entire home directory to mode 0777 to be able to install
public shares!
