Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I don't know how many post I read already and can't believe its so tricky. Ok let me be specific:

I run a Ubuntu 13.10 desktop and want some shares on my NAS (QNAP FW3.8.2) to be automatically mounted. So far I use the Nautilus bookmark function but...

As the user accounts on both machines using the same account name plus password I tried to edit /etc/fstab as follows

192.168.1.9/Qdownload /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0
192.168.1.9/*q*download /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0

192.168.1.9*:*/Qdownload /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0
192.168.1.9*:*/qdownload /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0

*/*192.168.1.9/Qdownload /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0
*/*192.168.1.9/qdownload /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0

*//*192.168.1.9/Qdownload /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0
*//*192.168.1.9/qdownload /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0

*//*192.168.1.9:/Qdownload /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0
*//*192.168.1.9*:*/qdownload /mnt/NAS auto user,uid=1000,rw,suid,credentials=/etc/credentials 0 0

and may be more. I always get "special device //192.168.1.9/Qdownload" (or its variations) does not exist. Does anyone of you guys sense what the problem is?

A guess (for which I lack anything to test against) is that it doesn't like the filesystem type being auto when the source has unusual syntax. The line should look something like //server/share /mnt/NAS cifs option,option,... 0 0 –  chronitis Aug 9 '13 at 13:44
