So, I'd also have Mediatomb installed on my laptop, and want to be able to use that too.
Mediatomb needs a mounted filesystem however, whereas I now connect to it via smb://livebox/DisquesUSB/HD204UI/data/ in Dolphin.
So here how I mount that on the different systems:
cd /media/test it:
sudo mkdir liveboxUsbHD
sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=theuser,password=hispass //livebox/DisquesUSB/HD204UI /media/liveboxUsbHDThe directory /media/liveboxUsbHD should contain the files.
For automatic mounting:
cd /etc/init.dAnd have this file contain the above line
sudo kate start_smb
#!/bin/bashSo we use smbfs, cifs should work too and is even needed if a real windows share. Anyway, the file contains your password, so hide it and give it correct permissions:
sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=theuser,password=hispass //livebox/DisquesUSB/HD204UI /media/liveboxUsbHD
sudo chmod 550 start_smbIn case the samba share is not available on start-up, you can create the link on a later time with:
sudo update-rc.d start_smb defaults
sudo ./etc/init.d/start_smbThat's it!
