The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 5061
Enabling interpretation of desktop.ini
Last modified: 2007-11-28 13:30:03 UTC
How can I make it so that on Samba shares the desktop.ini file is interpreted
(responsible for displaying the folder customisations such as icons like My
Music or My Pictures folders or others folders customized with the "Customize"
tab in the properties window). It is interpreted OK on local folders or on
Windows Server 2003 shares, just not on Samba shares.
Sorry for my english not very perfect.
Set "store dos attributes = yes". This only works if your underlying file system has xattrs enabled. On Linux with ext3 this means you have to add the user_xattr flag to the mount options.
