Thanks for reporting.

Looks like this was removed since there was no newer versions and it used older libraries. See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/system-config-samba/+publishinghistory or bug 1740419 for more details.

So what is now the friendly solution for managing samba users and samba shares ?

This one was just enough, relatively simple but with samba users management.

…a simple graphical tool for managing samba-users and samba-shares is lacking in Ubuntu 20.04.

It is absolutely regrettable to have eliminated System-config-samba for focal Fossa. We are working on PC for more than thirty years, running on Linux and Mac for twelve years and System-config-samba was very easy to configure our private network at office and home; it was safe and worked very well with a lot of different machines and OS. Now, some machines can't get in the Intranet because there old OS are not compatible with NFS or SSH.I hope that developers will get a solution
