How can I access a Mac OS X folder from Ubuntu Desktop (10.04) over the network?

Are you trying to access a folder on an OS X Client or Server? Does Ubuntu see the OS X machine you are attempting to connect to? Does it see the drive? Does it see the folder? Is the OS X folder on a OS X client drive that is HFS+ formatted? –  Everett Nov 20 '10 at 5:00

This recommends you load some files from the repository and make sure that journaling is OFF if you are going to have Ubuntu write to the drive. In OS X go to System Preferences, Sharing, and checkmark all the services you want shared from OS X.

Ubuntu will never be writing to (or reading from) the drive if it's over the network, so disabling journaling is not required. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Nov 20 '10 at 5:06
