I've used this way of connecting to my freecom networkdrive I can make the connection. I can read files, I can write files but I cannot replace files with another (newer) version and I cannot delete directories when these directories have files still in it. This is very annoying when using backup software like Synkron.
Do you have any idea how to fix this?
Another machine running windows XP can do the overwriting and multi deleting with no pain at all. I could of course boot into windows when syncronizing my files to the networkdrive, but there should be a nicer ubuntu way to do the job.
There's an option in Nautilus to add a true "delete" command to the context menu. I usually use that to delete any files as the Trashcan seems to be problematic when dealing with non-internal drives.
I get the same input / output error in nautilus and thunar or if I try to resave a file I'm working on in Open Office. I don't use commandline for these kind of actions.
In Thunar I could copy a newer version over an excisting file with the same filemane) But I couldn't make Thunar, nor Nautilus deleting a directory with a file in it. It simply says that the directory doesn't excist. (with Nautilus started from terminal, there a no extra messages visible in the terminal.)
I'm confused with this....
In spite of the fact that you don't use the command line to access this data during normal use, the command line may be required to gain more information about the nature of the errors you're getting. Naturally, it's common to use the command line to get information that the GUI does not provide.
We need to find out if GVFS provides logging information and if so, where that information is kept. So far I haven't been able to find out.
GVFS is still new technology compared to the old fstab method that I discussed in the original post. We may need to punt here and use that method because GVFS isn't working out for you.

The share folder has parenthesis, so when I run it, I get an error message. Is there a way around this?

Thanks a lot NTolerance, I appreciate it. It worked.
This is a life saver! I'm trying to implement Ubuntu at our school and was having problem mapping shares. This method will do, but I was wondering about a few specifics. Is there anyway to use with the users current credentials (not have to ask for the keyring)? I have connected my test machine to our domain and can login as a domain user, so the current user has full rights to the shares.
If you have to stick with the keyring, what happens when the users password changes? Will it update?
Is there anyway to apply this for all users who login on the machine?
Sorry for the on-slot of questions, but we have a short time frame to do all our feasibility testing before we roll out Ubuntu. Thanks
