Apple File Share in Ubuntu. AFP, netatalk.


Just install netatalk. No config is needed at all. The default settings will just work. It works with macOS Sierra (10.12) and Ubuntu (16.04.1 LTS).

I don’t need Avahi at all.


sudo /etc/init.d/netatalk restart

Sharing more folders (optional)

The default will work.

sudo vi /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default

Append: ~/ “$u” allow:username_1 cnidscheme:cdb
