i have a small problem accessing my home network samba share from opensuse 12.2
The problem is that it asks for a username and password and it does not accept the password.
The password contain . and - and much more
from a shell i can mount it and pass tthe password, but not from dolphin.
Can anyone help on this ?
i have also wrote a shell script:
if grep -q /media/JKoderMedia /proc/mounts; then
echo "It's mounted"
echo -e "SAMBA Share not mounted
Will be mounted now"
kdesu mount -t cifs //192.168.1.110/DATA /media/JKoderMedia/ -o username=jkoder
dolphin /media/JKoderMedia &
but now in this one i would like that KDE ask me for password and not the script itself.
Any help is appreciated
You did not specify your desktop used and if you have upgraded your Linux Kernel or not. For instance, I have found a problem with Linux Kernel 3.6 which might get loaded if you use Tumbleweed for instance. I also have bash scripts to install kernel 3.6 if you wanted to. So, tell us more about your setup. I have a couple of blogs on Samba you can find here:
