http://ubuntuforums.org – I have found file sharing to be broken on install since 10.04. install ubuntu 10.0X on 2 machines on same network. Try this on both machines: open file browser. right click on any folder. choose "sharing options". check "share this directory" click "create share" button you will be prompted to install file sharing. do it. afterwards you will be prompted to logout/login. do it. reboot both machines if you want to. now browse the network and try to open a share on the other machine. you get a "failed to retreive shares message" That's it.
