Is there any links/tutorials/videos that helps me share files between Ubuntu and Mac OS X?
Assuming you want to share on a local network
On OS X. Click on System Preferences --> Sharing. Make sure the Services tab is selected. Choose one of the sharing methods, either UNIX sharing or Windows sharing.
On your Ubuntu machine, go to Places --> Connect to server and enter the sharing details.
Have a look at this forum http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=353584
I'm also using Ubuntu 10.04 and I can connect to my machines using their name. Say I have computers named ernie and bert that are on the same network:
ernie:~$ ping bert.local ernie:~$ echo hello > file.txt ernie:~$ scp file.txt bert.local:~/copied-from-ernie.txt
You can use this in nautilus too. Enter
ssh://bert.local into the nautilus location bar in ubuntu (hit Ctrl-L to select the location bar) and hit enter. If you have different user names use
I think you can do something similar in the Finder location bar.
You have to install/enable sshd for this to work:
sudo apt-get install openssh-server(you may need to restart)
- Mac: System Preferences --> Sharing. Check the "Remote Login" box.
Why not use Dropbox? I found it's a pretty easy and convenient way of sharing files. Also it is a cross-system solution, so you might use it for taking files to a further windows computer, too. However, I have not yet tried Ubuntu<->Mac but only Windows-Mac, which worked beautifully.
