thunar-shares-plugin not available in xubuntu maverick 10.10

Asked by Kimbo Kaz

I cannot find thunar-shares-plugin in the repos for xubuntu maverick 10.10. It's not in xfce-goodies where I think it used to be.

Has it been withdrawn or moved?

If so can somebody suggest an alternative? - I need a VERY simple way for a user to share a folder without having to use samba configuration directly.

Many thanks,
