Samba shares don't work

in flag

Ubuntu 20:04LTS It have being a very strange error with my samba shares, after an update yesterday. First I can not sambashare a folder home/Downloads/TDL. Nautilus give an error (fig1)

Fist I can not share a file in my home directory any more. I get this error when I try to share from nautilus: When i try to share folder TDL i get this error message

Why can i not share folders with Nautilus share? Nautilus says:

''net usershare' returned error 255: [2023/04/03 15:42:47, 0] ../../lib/util/debug.c:1100(reopen_one_log) reopen_one_log: Unable to open new log file 'TDL/': No such file or directory net usershare add: share name /home/a/downloads/tdl contains invalid characters (any of %<>?|/+=;:",)*'

I can not find any invalid charters in my name of chared folders

When i looking for shared folder with: 'net usershare info --long' I get no shares folders even if I have shared "media" read only in smb.conf by adding:

[Media-guest] path = /media ; read only = yes force user = guest ok = yes

in the end of smb.conf

This work, I can access my usb-disks as read only, but it does not show up with net usershare and I can not make any share with nautilus.

I believe this is a [known bug in `samba`](

So there are no solution? Well for a long time Samba browsing did not work (about half a year) so maybe I have to edit in smb.conf again. Is there solution if you aktivate Ubuntu Pro?
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
