Automatic installation of samba fails with "could not find package
Status in nautilus-share package in Ubuntu:
Status in nautilus-share source package in Bionic:
I actually have no idea if this is really a Nautilus issue but didn't
know where else to file it.
I have a fresh install of ubuntu 17.10. I start nautilus (using
File). I right-click on a folder and select "Local Network Share".
When I select "Share this folder" it says the sharing service is not
installed, so I select "Install Service" and it offers to install
samba for me.
I click "install" and it proceeds, then throws up an error dialog:
Could not find package 'libpam-smbpass'
I can see that Samba packages are already installed at this point.
