file missing for system-config-samba

Bug #225805 reported by sonal on 2008-05-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
system-config-samba (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: system-config-samba


I've been facing difficulties in setting up samba.

1. installation of system-config-samba
2. launching it via sudo system-config-samba
=>[code]Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/system-config-samba", line 41, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/system-config-samba/", line 118, in __init__
    self.basic_preferences_win = basicPreferencesWin.BasicPreferencesWin(self, self.xml, self.samba_data, self.samba_backend, self.main_window)
  File "/usr/share/system-config-samba/", line 93, in __init__
    self.admin = libuser.admin()
SystemError: could not open configuration file `/etc/libuser.conf': Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type[/code]
3. creating the file via : sudo touch /etc/libuser.conf
=> system-config-samba seems to work (i'll give further informations if not)

I think there must be a mistake and the solutions could be to suppose this file empty or create it if nonexistent

The release is an almost freshly installed Hardy + samba + system-config-samba

Please warn me if any information is missing

Confirmed. The workaround is to create an empty /etc/libuser.conf.

Confirmed + removing a row in smb.conf " enable spoolss=yes "
System-config-samba reacted on that row when starting.
