I added this to /etc/samba/smb.conf.

path = /home/myusername/iTunes
valid users = myusername
writable = yes

This has the desired effect, except that for some reason I can't edit file attributes:

Access Denied
Not Found

I'm assuming this is because I need to add a certain setting to my configuration. How do I grant the necessary permissions to myusername?

I found the solution to my problem. It turns out the problem isn't related to Samba after all. Sorry. :)

How to Fix a Locked iTunes Library File
-- http://www.ihackintosh.com/2010/01/how-to-fix-a-locked-itunes-library-file-2/

I've paraphrased the answer here by request:

  • Make sure iTunes is closed.

  • Go to your iTunes folder and move the iTunes Library file to your desktop. (You might want to create a backup of all the files in the main folder if you're worried you're gonna lose data.)

  • Launch iTunes. Your library should be empty.

  • Restore your library by dragging the iTunes Library file from your desktop into the iTunes window. In the iTunes window that pops up, click Replace.
