SOLVED SMB4K Automount of Network Drives SOLVED

Opensuse 13.1

If you want to auto mount your Network drive(s) and folders on start up (log in) then you need to check ‘remount recently used shares on program start’ in SMB4K 1.1.1 which can be found in the configure menu > shares tab/icon.

Then go to YaST and enable 'user controlled with network manager, under global settings, network services.

Enable the SMB4K widget, if your running KDE or keep SMB4K open even on exit on other shells.

The drives and folders will the mount on log in.


Yes, and you forgot to tell that smb4k 1.1.1 is available in the KDE:Extra repository. Just enter YaST->Software Repositories, click on “Add”, select “Community Repositories” and add KDE:Extra.
Then enter YaST->Software Management, search for smb4k, select the package, click on “Versions” below the package list and select the 1.1.1 (or higher) version.

But it should work with “Traditional method with ifup” as well, you shouldn’t need NetworkManager.

And I guess it doesn’t work with 1.0.9 as included in 13.1, because this requires the root password to mount shares.
If you add:

de.berlios.smb4k.mounthelper.mount yes

to /etc/polkit-default-privs.local and run “sudo /sbin/set_polkit_default_privs”, it should work as well. But I haven’t tried.
