During the last few days I've tried to connect to a Windows shared folder on another machine using Ubuntu.
Finally yesterday I succeeded, but today it is not working anymore. Here's what I have done:
- create a directory on Desktop
add this line to /etc/fstab:
//network_ip/shared_folder /home/user_name/Desktop/directory_on_Desktop cifs guest,uid=1000 0 0
Yesterday it worked fine, but today it says:
mount (22): invalid argument
If I change, in the fstab file, from
users it works fine. But why can't I use guest?
P.S. Yesterday after finishing using the PC I shut it down without manually unmounting the shared folder. While it was shutting down it stopped on the Ubuntu window (the one with five dots under the logo) so I held down the power button to shut it down.
