RW Permissions on CIFS Mount
Recently completed a new install of 12.04 on my netbook and I am trying to mount a Windows share for the purposes of backing up images and also accessing my existing media and document files on the Windows box.
I did have this working on 8.04 back in 2009/2010.
Essentially I can successfully mount and access the share, but cannot copy up files, or edit files - it's as if I am connected in a read-only mode or the Windows permissions aren't being read properly.
I have tried mounting with mount -t cifs and with mount.cifs.
I have tried using the rw option on both commands but this does not seem to make a difference.
Re: RW Permissions on CIFS Mount
Are you using a "credentials" file to log into the share with your Windows username and password?
If you are trying to mount with CIFS from the command prompt, see this.
In Kubuntu you can mount a Windows share from the Dolphin file manager by entering the URL smb://user@server/share/ in the address box. You'll be prompted for the password. I believe Nautilus supports the same syntax.
