UID instead of users name in a mounted samba share

0 votes

This morning at office I was listing files in a terminal inside a samba share from my networked server and surprise folder was identified inside run/user/1000/gvfs instead of run/user/antonio/gvfs (of course antonio has UID 1000). Is it correct???

Why would it not be? The purpose of /run/user/UID here is to avoid the kernel needing to do a username lookup to locate the directory when it already has the UID (which is all it really needs to perform the
mapping operations). As long as the UID matches up, what's the problem?

I have an existing system which contains a LAN connected disk drive. I have added a new computer on which I installed Ubuntu (this is my first linux experience). From the Ubuntu computer I can read the files on the samba connected drive but I can not write to those files. I have tried to change the permissions but can not locate where the drive is mounted. So my question ishow do I change the permissions?
