This was a fresh install of 12.04 on old Dell Dimension, then immediately
upgraded to 12.10.
I'm trying to create a Samba share using the (downloaded) Samba gui
application listed in Software Center. I've done this many, many times
before with the GUI. However this time, the dialogue box is not allowing me
to create a password. I'm choosing "Only allow access to specific users" but
there is nothing to click on to add a user. I clicked on the empty white box
and something weird happens. If I just start typing, a text entry box pops
up. I enter a username but I do not see it listed after hitting enter. Vey
strange behavior for a GUI application. Missing text/instruction lines and
maybe a button or two as well.
I uninstalled then re-installed. No change.
Ran dpkg-reconfigure samba. No change.
Ran dpkg-reconfigure system-config-samba. No change.
