There will not be a "share this folder option," but there should be one, as juancarlos said, called "Sharing Options." When that is selected, you can choose to share the folder. Is the option titled "Sharing Options" not listed for you?

Give the page listed blow a try and see if it helps you out at all. If not, we can go from there. It is slightly different pre-8.10.

Are you using Kubuntu or Ubuntu, or in other words, are you using Gnome or KDE?

If using Ubuntu (or Gnome), then you should check that you have the package nautilus-share installed. If it is not install, use the Synaptics package manager (located under 'System' -> 'Administration') to install it.
Now, log out and log in again (I am not sure if this step is necessary, but just in case).

And now, can you see the "Sharing options" listed once you right click on a directory?

Can you help with this problem?
