Right after installing Samba sharing service via Nautilus and after a reboot, I am unable to set up the default share option.
(See screenshot for the error reported).

I have to manually install the package samba-common-bin in order to install the "testparm" command.
I assume that the auto-installed packages via Nautilus, should have samba-common-bin as dependency.
