Hello everybody reporting to Debian bug #721677.

I'd like to understand more about the problem you're seeing.

In Gnome 3.8, sharing is configured in gnome-control-center.
You all seem to be trying to do it somehow differently.
Why and how?

Could you please describe more details about what you're trying
to do that leads up to the problem?

Quoting parts from your previous reports:
> Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/gnome-file-share-properties" (No
> such file or directory)
> The above mentioned executable is indeed missing, [...]

There's no such executable for sure... the question is why/how you're
trying to use it though?!

Please describe more background.
Feel free to skip the (a) start computer, (b) log in, steps in your
