I recently upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 (actual upgrade, not new install).
I have 3 machines on a local wireless and was attempting to set up simple
System->Preferences->Personal File Sharing

installed on your system"
It made no indication just what the required packages were. So I guessed.
I thought that perhaps reinstalling "gnome-user-share 2.30.0" in Synaptic
might help, however,
E: man-db: subprocess installed post-installation script killed by signal
E: samba: subprocess installed post-installation script killed by signal
E: libpam-smbpass: subprocess installed post-installation script returned
error exit status 139
Is this a known artifact of the upgrade? I hesitate to file a bug report
because I have usually done something stupid.
(In my system) System / Administration / Shared Folders is part of
"gnome-system-tools" not "gnome-user-share". It looks like in 10.10
"gnome-user-share" is optional, not part of a standard install.
Perhaps you might need Samba of sshfs.
Thanks, Lucio, but SharedFolders and PersonalFileSharing are two different apps. I no longer have a 10.04 installation, but I am guessing that PersonalFileSharing was leftover from 10.04.
