I seem to have some issues sharing folders from my Ubuntu 12.04 machine to a Win7 machine. After playing around with the settings, I decided to revert to Samba's original setting by reinstalling it:

sudo apt-get purge samba
sudo rm -rf /etc/samba/ /etc/default/samba
sudo apt-get install samba

just to be sure I also run:

sudo apt-get install samba samba-common system-config-samba winbind

Now, I can't find /etc/samba folder any more. Even when I try to share a folder through Nautilus, I get:

Samba's testparm returned error 1: Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)
params.c:OpenConfFile() - Unable to open configuration file "/etc/samba/smb.conf":
    No such file or directory
Error loading services.

Same when I try to list:

[email protected]:~$ ll /etc/samba
ls: cannot access /etc/samba: No such file or directory

Any ideas what I did wrong, or what other package am I missing?
