where is the samba restart file? While reading through a few online resources that talk about restarting samba on Ubuntu/Debian based systems they say to type in:

/etc/init.d/samba restart

The file does not seem to be there. Help please.

Sorry if this was posted in the wrong forum.

I believe it is "smbd" instead of "samba". I also believe using 'service' is easier:
$ sudo service smbd restart

Thank you. On a side note, any reason why Trisquel 6.0 is still using Gimp 2.6 instead of 2.8?

Because upstream did it and we follow them.

I am new to a lot of Trisquel stuff as of about 2 years ago. I never really involved too much in the setup or distro of the software as it suits my needs on a personal level. However, I am trying to move using Trisquel on a more professional level for a start up company and there are some things to be desired. I know a lot of effort is still being put into the system so I am patient. I do not know what upstream is, or of the change from 'samba' to 'smbd' (which seems odd? what is the purpose of the name change?).

Anyway, thanks for the replies and help. Just struggling with getting the distro to a point were I can have others on the team use it without too much trouble. Thanks again.

To install the latest version of Gimp I used the link below if anyone else is interested.

You might want to consider making a small donation at this point in time. Call it a startup cost and then something more considerable (membership) once the business is off the ground.

>I do not know what upstream is

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upstream_%28software_development%29

In the case of Trisquel, the upstream is Ubuntu, which upstream is Debian which upstream are the 30,000 separate software packages.
