I've been having much trouble with samba with the new Fedora. First of all the package nautilus-share is missing. I've discovered a simple front-end of samba for this which is very unhelpful and unable to setup guest shares. What I want to do is share my home folder with read only guest share access. Not much but nothing on the Internet is being helpful for the past couple of days so I got here as a final resort. The task is to setup samba so my home folder (/home/user/) is shared with everyone without write access and only read. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I'd love to see the package nautilus-share in Fedora as it provides one-button easy setup of shares but there isn't one so I hope that the very clever person who decided to do us this favor and make our lives harder be blessed for all times :)

Done, although I don't like sarcasm since majority of people I know or have spoken to have no knowledge of it and further more the exact thoughts of a person are quite more important than lengthly blabbering.
