I used to mount my local network HDD (samba share) using following fstab entry:
//192.168.1.5/PUBLIC /media/MyBookLive smbfs credentials=/home/gacek/.mybookcredentials,uid=1000,gid=1000
Of course, the
.mybookcredentials file contains authentication details for user with full rights. It used to work in 12.x, but I had to reinstall my Ubuntu and right now (in 11.10) it mounts the share in read-only mode.
I also tried to replace
cifs with no result.
How can I mount my samba share (via fstab) with write permissions?
OK, I haven't noticed that my GID changed. After checking my
id -u username
And replacing with it the UID and GID in
fstab file all works - I have read-write permissions to my mounted samba disc.
