View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to map a network drive?

April 27th, 2008, 10:02 AM
Hey guys, I'm not really sure how to say this for linux but I need to map a network drive in linux as you would do in windows. I have a networked share on a Windows box thats mounted in my 8.04 machine but it doesn't show up as a usable share for Amarok. I can play songs in Amarok but when I try to index the share there's no sign of it. I've been reading around and I think this has something to do with mounting a samba(smb?) share? Anyways thats the meat of the problem other than that Hardy is working out pretty good other than the fact that the upgrade failed and I had to re-install:(.

Do a search on how to setup samba. The search box is your friend.

I am having the same issue. I can't find anything thats clear on how to set this up.

I wasn't too impressed with the previous post saying '...just do a search'- thanks for nothing dude; you could have provided a link!

Still lookin...

It may be getting kinda dated (smbfs is now cifs), but there's a link in my signature for mounting Samba shares.

I'm getting this error when trying to mount it
"mount error: can not change directory into mount target //mnt/musicshare"
It doesn't matter what I put in there as mount target i still get an error.
