Better Samba integration in the graphical administration tool

Registered by sjoret on 2005-10-26

I created a SMB share on my Ubuntu Linux 5.10 with the shares graphical administration tool, but I dit not have access to it because no user was declared for Samba. I had to use smbpasswd in a terminal window to create a Samba user. I think a "human being" who's not aware of the technical background could not do it without spending a lot of time. I suggest to add the creation of this Samba user in the graphical tool (in a kind of wizard, for example).
