View Full Version : [ubuntu] Automount network shares?

Hi all,

I just wondered, is there a way to automount network ssh shares on logon, similar to automounting an NTFS partition?

Depending on what permissions you want them to have on the local machine, you can always use /etc/fstab for mounting at system startup.

If you, for example:
mount -t type -o options remote /my/mount/dir

You can probably put in a simple fstab entry like this:

# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
remote /my/mount/dir type options 0 0

If you want it at log in (i.e. your user only), I would suggest just writing a shell script to mount it (if you need to have user input, run it with gnome-terminal -e "script") and put it in the login items under System->Preferences->Sessions.
