    Didn't help any, but thanks for the suggestions. If I remember correctly, Nautilus is Gnome-specific and I'm running Kubuntu.

    i'm even more clueless then. i've only rarely used kde.

    you could try mounting the share in your home folder, and making a symbolic link to your desktop instead. wouldn't be as pretty, and it wouldn't disappear and reappear when the connection went up and down, but it may be less frustration for you.

    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    Now that I play around with it, it does seem to be a permissions problem. I did try your previous suggestion with unmounting, then running the chmod 777 and remounting, which didn't help.

    It seems that I currently have rights to create, but not modify. I can create a blank text file, but if I open the file and try to edit it, I get an error when saving. If I try to copy a file into the share, it will create a blank file with the name of the source file, then throw up an error. I can edit files just fine as root. I seem to have full file rights if I mount it at ~/music instead of /media/music

    Don't know if it will help, but here it the line from /etc/fstab

    //guide/Music /media/music cifs guest,rw,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=07 77 0 0

    Sorry dmizer... I meant to come back here a while ago and say thank you for the great guide! It was a big help with my home media center setup.
    It's not a "Bug", it's a "Feature"...

    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    dmizer,

    Thanks so much for this post! I was able to successfully mount my Maxtor Shared Storage II 500GB nas with this HowTo. I didn't have to ask 1 question because this whole thread contained all the info I needed.

    I followed the exact steps you prescribed, but instead used an IP instead of the NetBios (I assigned a static IP to the nas so that the DHCP doesn't always change it).

    Thanks again!

    Oh dear !

    In order to "convert" Windows users to Ubuntu, why can't this be done by a simple GUI ??


    Windows users (my self included) hate commandlines !

    as i have said before in this thread, this CAN be done by gui.

    furthermore, as i indicated in the howto itself:

    if i give gui directions for this, it will work in Ubuntu, but not in Kubuntu or Xubuntu. should i just leave the other users out, and let them fend for themselves?

    This is an excellent thread. But if you followed it exactly and still had problems saving text files to network shares, the problem might not be the way you set up the share. If you are using gedit, there is a bug you need to be aware of.

    I kept thinking my problem was my permissions on my smbfs or cifs command. The problem turned out to be gedit.

    Solution: don't use gedit (at least not for editing files on network shares)
