Hi, sorry I just got this now. I tried that, and it doesnt seem to work.
Now since entering sudo chgrp sambashare /var/lib/samba/usershares, I no
longer have locks next to each directory, but I now have X's next to
them. Now sure why that should have happened, I did exactly as you said.
I can give the results to the output of id <username> if you want.
