I am trying to figure out how to share files between Ubuntu and Windows 7. I have looked online and I've tried doing the samba command and it would not open for me. It said it installed but I did the dash and then searched for it and clicked on it but the password prompt popped up and I submitted my password and then nothing happened. Is there a way to uninstall that and reinstall it and How to access the shared files between the two OS's.

Hi,
I found this guide very helpful and easy to follow:

"Looking for some harmony between Windows 7 and Ubuntu in your dual-boot setup? Here are a few ways you can make the tense OS situation a little more unified and copacetic."

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/35807/how-to-harmonize-your-dual-boot-setup-for-windows-and-ubuntu/

Hope this helps?

Richard

You followed the whole guide and it does not work, is that what you are saying? - Works fine on Dell with Vista & Ubuntu 10.04.3

Give it another try, taking it slowly step by step from a printed copy - that's the best I can suggest for now .... sorry!
