    Re: Map Windows Shares Permanently with GVFS

    That was it! Thank you so much. The quotes came from Open Office Writer. I was doing copy/paste to put the strings together. Weird to me because it's the same damn key! Probably not that weird though if you're not a noob like I am.

    Re: Map Windows Shares Permanently with GVFS

    Hey, is anyone else having trouble getting samba shares to mount with gvfs in the latest Lucid alpha? I've reported a bug but there doesn't seem to be much interest in it.

    Re: Map Windows Shares Permanently with GVFS

    Thank you for this nice Howto,

    i was experimenting with gvfs-mount for a couple of days now and am trying to mount shares via ssh on a different machine. I learned that i need to execute the following two lines before i use the actual mount command.
    Code:
    dbus-launch bash
    /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd -r &
    But i frequently encounter problems with the mount points in ~/.gvfs as they sometimes or better most of the times do not show up at all. If i manually test the mounts with
    Code:
    gvfs-mount -l
    they are listed correctly.
    Does one of you have an idea how to deal with this and where the mounts get linked to if not in the above directory?

    Thx,
    Nix

    Thanks for your nice tutorial. I'm new to Ubuntu and don't know much about the shell and scripts and so on.
    You explained it so clearly that I managed to install it on my machine without any problem. I used it to ensure that the FreeNAS (running on my old 'recycled' PC) is well there at each startup !

    Friendly greetings from Belgium ! Claude

    Re: Map Windows Shares Permanently with GVFS

    Hey just wanted to post up a script I put together that mounts your drives on login and it runs in the background to ensure the connection stays active. Just as with the OPs code, you need to mount it one time via nautilus and tell it to remember your password. You will need to do this for each share that is linked to your username.
    Note: You can map bad users to a guest account on the server's smb.conf. This will allow you to connect to shares with guest privileges for shares that you did not provide a password for.

    Samba mounter
    Startup Item

    I run into times where transferring many files can cause a connection drop and then I am hosed till it gets remounted. This takes care of that issue.

    BEFORE YOU RUN IT!!!:
    Please go into the file and change the paths that are to be mounted and get rid of unneeded entries. Lines 47-51 of the file, you can simply delete lines that you dont need or add more just follow the numbering scheme (0,1,2,3,n...). The syntax is outlined in the file.

    The script requires gvfs be installed so install it via the manager or use:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gvfs
    NOTE:
    Please make sure you are running this as a startup application.
    If you are having issues please change the DEBUG=0 line to DEBUG=1 and post the output of the log file from "/tmp/gnome-samba-mount-startup.log"

    To make the script available to all run
    Code:
    sudo cp ~/Downloads/gnome-samba-mount-startup /usr/bin
    sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/gnome-samba-mount-startup
    To put the startup item in place run
    Code:
    sudo cp ~/Downloads/gnome-samba-mount-startup.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart
    This assumes you downloaded the file to ~/Downloads

    Re: Map Windows Shares Permanently with GVFS

    I found a very easy workaround for automatically mounting windows shares on startup.

    May not be the right way, but its easy enough.

    Go to "System" - "Preferences" - "Startup Applications"

    Then Click on Add

    For Name, put whatever you want

    Then for command, put "nautilus smb://(IP of share/share path)

    For example, the shared drive on my windows server is called "my-terabytes" and my servers local ip is 192.168.1.30

    So the command on mine says "nautilus smb://192.168.1.30/my-terabytes" (no quotes)

    Everything works great
    only downside, is every time I log in, that folder opens, but most of the time, thats where I'm going anyway

    Really you should use the script I posted as if the drive become un-mapped, it will remap it for you. In addition it allows you to have just one script in your startup applications for all network mappings.

    Plus you will not have the nautilus popup you are talking about.
