I recently purchased a Netgear ReadyNas and have a question about mounting an NFS volume. Firstly I know how to mount the share in fstab. There is a lot of information around that describes how to do that. I really don't want to do that.
What I want to do is have a shortcut or launcher that I can execute which will mount the nfs share for me (for example mounting it to ~/music). When I plug in a usb drive xubuntu automatically puts a drive icon shortcut on my desktop and allows me to 'eject'. Is this possible? Does it make sense?
I am using xubuntu 11.10.
I have been doing research to solve this problem and I have come up with two possibilities:
1) Create a shell script or
I am not sure which is better. I am more comfortable with shell scripting than AutoFS. The problem with the shell scripting is that I'll need sudo permissions. What I have read about AutoFS it might be the best solution. Is there a way to setup AutoFS so that I can keep the configuration files within the users home folder?
