[SOLVED] Samba Mount Points

Postby RedWagon » Fri May 20, 2011 1:14 pm

I'm mounting shares via the Nautilus network browser and trying to access the mounted points via the command line. I have had no trouble doing this in the past but I know there are lots of changes with smb and cifs so there's probably just some new feature I haven't caught up on.

Code: Select all

verdow@techcage-07 ~ $ mount -v
/dev/sdb2 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro,commit=0)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/sdb3 on /home type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro,commit=0)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
binfmt_misc on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
cgroup on /dev/cgroup/cpu type cgroup (rw,cpu)
/dev/sda2 on /media/old type ext4 (rw,commit=0)
verdow@techcage-07 ~ $ ls -al .gvfs/
total 8
drwx------  2 verdow verdow 4096 Dec 27 05:51 .
drwxr-xr-x 68 verdow verdow 4096 May 19 16:41 ..
verdow@techcage-07 ~ $ cd /
verdow@techcage-07 / $ find 2> /dev/null | grep KYDAG
verdow@techcage-07 / $


mount doesn't show anything and the old location ~/.gvfs is empty. What really concerns me is that find didn't find anything; it's almost like these are mounted within some weird Gnome thing.

I know I could mount everything manually using the command line and be able to specify my own mount points but I do access a lot of random stations so going through that every time is quite tedious. Mounting Windows shares is one of the few things I'd rather use a GUI for.

Debian needs a little help with this:

You need to install one package:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gvfs-fuse

You need to add yourself to the fuse group:

Code: Select all

sudo gpasswd -a your-user-name fuse

Then logout and login again for the group change to take affect and see if it's there at .gvfs.
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.
