I have a headless Ubuntu server running on my network. Initially I had configured it for SAMBA for use with my windows machines and that seemed to work ok. I've just bought a Mac and am trying to access the server - it appears in Finder without me doing anything but when I log in, I can't see any files or write to it or anything.
I tried running through this tutorial to set up netatalk and avahi but it fails at the first step - I can't get the source files because I get an error:
Package libcupsys2-dev is a virtual package provided by: libcups2-dev 1.4.2-8 You should explicitly select one to install. E: Package libcupsys2-dev has no installation candidate E: Failed to satisfy Build-Depends dependency for netatalk: libcupsys2-dev
and I don't know what to do next. I tried going through the steps just using the basic version from the repos which gets me as far as the server appearing in Finder, but when I try to log on, I just get an invalid username/password error (and I've tried so many times I am certain I have the right ones!)
Does anyone have any tips for setting up an Ubuntu server so I can use it with my Mac?
For the Bounty: I'd like the server broadcast via Bonjour so I can see it in finder, and I'd like the option to set it up as a TimeMachine backup if possible.
