I've installed Ushare and need to edit the ushare.conf file as per the wiki.

The problem is, the file is /etc/ushare.conf_sample so I need to change the name.
And secondly I don't know how to edit it.

Can anyone help me? I'm a linux noob, so really struggling to grasp whay needs to be done here.

I know what needs to be put in the file - I've got this from elsewhere, just don't know HOW to do it!

# /etc/ushare.conf

# Configuration file for uShare

# uShare UPnP Friendly Name (default is 'uShare').


# Interface to listen to (default is eth0).

# Ex : USHARE_IFACE=eth1


# Port to listen to (default is random from IANA Dynamic Ports range)

# Ex : USHARE_PORT=49200


# Port to listen for Telnet connections



# Directories to be shared (space or CSV list).

# Ex: USHARE_DIR=/dir1,/dir2


# Use to override what happens when iconv fails to parse a file name.

# The default uShare behaviour is to not add the entry in the media list

# This option overrides that behaviour and adds the non-iconv'ed string into

# the media list, with the assumption that the renderer will be able to

# handle it. Devices like Noxon 2 have no problem with strings being passed

# as is. (Umlauts for all!)


# Options are TRUE/YES/1 for override and anything else for default behaviour


# Enable Web interface (yes/no)


# Enable Telnet control interface (yes/no)


# Use XboX 360 compatibility mode (yes/no)


# Use DLNA profile (yes/no)

# This is needed for PlayStation3 to work (among other devices)

To make a copy of the file use:
 cp /etc/ushare.conf_sample /etc/ushare.conf

In terms of editing, the 'vi' editor is supplied as standard, but is certainly not friendly to use like many unix/linux editors. I would suggest instead the 'nano editor which can be downloaded from my web page and installed using a command of the form:
 tar -xzf <path-to-downloaded-tgz-file> --directory=/usr/local

where <path-to-downloaded-tgz-file> is to where you put the file you downloaded - and is probably something like /mnt/array1/share/nano-2.2.4_ppc.tgz if you put it into the root of the default share.

After nano is installed you can use
 nano /etc/ushare.conf

to edit the file. nano includes an on-screen help to the less obvious commands so you should be ok from there.

You might find it useful to grab a guide to common linux/unix commands (e.g. ls, cp, cd etc) to make it easier to do standard things from the command line. There are plenty around on the internet.
