    sorry, i couldn't come up with a solution quickly. in the mean time, you may want to do some searching on automount.

    i think it's wicd that's messing up the works.

    That's OK dmizer. I can still type mount -a whenever I boot the thing (like once a day), so it isn't a real urgent issue.

    Do you recommend using the Ubuntu manager instead? I may give that a try anyway. What do I have to install from Synaptic to get the Ubuntu Network Manager back? Can't remember right now.

    dmizer, I found the network manager and installed it. As soon as I configured the wireless connection my two shares popped up on the desktop! Looks like it WAS Wicd that was messing with the shares.

    Thank you for all your help!

    -edit- The network manager is a bit funky. Had to enable roaming mode on both wired and wireless. After the first reboot, no share connections.

    -edit, part deux- seems to be working on reboots now.

    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    Uhhhh What ?

    Which button do I click again ? LOL

    Sorry thats a bit too much information for me.
    I have the desktop folder created using a clickety method of browsing thru the network and opening the folder I wish to make a shortcut to. Then I use the menu at the top to create a connect to server file on the desktop, and select connect permanantly.

    So it's working fine, but the make link did not appear to allow it.

    Anyhow thanks for the response If I run into a problem I'll try the konsole method etc.

    Thanks

    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    Ok, dumb question here.

    There are 2 shares on my windows box that are shared.
    I use the same credentials to access them.

    public = works great.
    backup = "Permission denied"

    For the record, I have tried using the same credentials file and got the same results. Is it not possible to open two shares from the same machine? Now that'd be odd...

    Code:
    //myservername/public      /media/public       cifs    credentials=/root/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
    
    //myservername/backup    /media/backup   cifs    credentials=/root/.mycredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

    You definitely need to check the permissions on the shares themselves.

    I have recently had one heck of a problem with my win2K server and the shared folders on it (accessing it from my new laptop). I have two major shares on the server (music and shares). I had to go into each and grant access to the laptop user account on not only the root share (music and shares), but on each folder directly under each share. It was a real pain in the booty, but it worked. If you need more help on doing that just let me know. I will post a detailed list of what you need to do.

    Re: Mount samba shares with utf8 encoding using cifs

    Mind you, its actually a linux server in disguise...CENTOS 5 with samba shares. Shares work fine from a windows box....its been working well for almost 2 years except for the occasional downtime.

    Code:
    sambatree....
    my computer said..."samba what?"...lol ...command not found.
    however...smbtree said this:

    Code:
          \\MY-SERVER\ADMIN$          IPC Service (SME Server)
                    \\MY-SERVER\IPC$            IPC Service (SME Server)
                    \\MY-SERVER\spt             spt
                    \\MY-SERVER\public      Office Public Folder
                    \\MY-SERVER\Primary         Primary i-bay
                    \\MY-SERVER\print$          Printer drivers
    Strangely, my "other" share known as "backup" does not appear.

    As far as "child" folder permissions, it should be fine as I can access them like normal from a windows box.

    humm ... could you post the smb.conf from the server?
