  User not added to group sambashare:  "You do not have permission to
  create a usershare."

Status in nautilus-share package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I tried to share a folder and was prompted to install samba, which I accepted. I did not install pam-smbpass as I don't need it. I was prompted to log out and in again, which I did. Now I get this when creating a share:
  'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare: cannot open usershare directory /var/lib/samba/usershares. Error Permission denied
  You do not have permission to create a usershare. Ask your administrator to grant you permissions to create a share.
  It looks like the user was not added to the group sambashare at all (which script is supposed to do this? Where is the log file?).

  Manually running
  # sudo usermod -a -G sambashare jakob
  fixes the issue.
