mint 12- networking...........it doesn't
I kave 4 computers two laptops running on Mint 9, a desktop running windows XP and another desktop running Mint 12. The first three will happily share files and folders however Mint 12 wont despite having missing packages (apache2.2bin and apache-mod-dnssd) installed and personal file sharing enabled. I have visited various forums and the same fixes are suggested to me as I have already tried. Can anyone help? I'll be honest and say Mint 9 is brilliant and would recommend it to anyone but would like to get Mint 12 properly running and sharing files. Compiz doesn't work either but that can wait.
