Just followed your permanent mount method, perfect, exactly what I needed to have my networked music in Amarok, thanks so much
thanks a lot dmizer!!!!! Finally get my vista files!!!
Im getting the same error as some has reported as well. This is my fstab:
and this is the error it produces:Code://fredrik/Downloads /media/fileserver cifs credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
For reference, I made a useraccount in Vista with ubuntu/ubuntu as username/password.Code:mount error 13 = Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
Edit: I used a manual mount command instead of fstab now, and it worked. strange.
sudo mount -t cifs //fredrik/Downloads /media/fileserver -o username=ubuntu,password=ubuntu,iocharset=utf8,fil e_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777

Does "ubuntu" have permission to view the vista shares on vista?
Have you tried:
That's been the most common fix for this error.Code:sudo aptitude install smbfs
Okay, please post your fstab line, as well as the output of:
smbtree:Code://fredrik/Downloads /media/fileserver cifs credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0[/codesfredrik@fredrik-laptop:~$ smbtree

I am new to Linux and Ubuntu so yes, i am stupid and i dont know what im doing. Anyway i am having some problems getting my network setup. I followed all of the steps in your post but had some spelling errors (i could be the worlds worst speller). so when i type "sudo mount -a" i get the following error:
What does that mean and how can i fix it? Any advice would be appreciated. ThanksCode:brent@brent-laptop:~$ sudo mount -a mount error: can not change directory into mount target /media/C
