I added change notify as suggested to my smb.conf
usershare owner only = false
#allows sublime text to update when new files appear
change notify = yes
I restarted samba
sudo restart smbd
sudo restart nmbd
I disconnected, restarted Vista, and reconnected to the share.
Opened Sublime Text 2 and expanded a directory tree.
On ubuntu I created a new file
Project did not update with the new file.
Any other ideas? Any ways to troubleshoot?
