Trying to mount NAS shares from a new install of Kubuntu 12.04. NAS is Patriot Javelin.

Using cifs I can mount from Ubuntu 10.04 and from Kubuntu 10.04 and from a previous installation of Kubuntu 12.04.

Here is my fstab for the NAS

//fs/ED /home/ed/fs cifs credentials=/home/ed/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
//fs/BACKUP /media/fs/bu cifs credentials=/home/ed/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
//fs/MUSIC /media/fs/music cifs credentials=/home/ed/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
//fs/VIDEO /media/fs/vid cifs credentials=/home/ed/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

Where fs is the name for the NAS IP address in my /etc/hosts. It pings up just fine.

This has served well on other installations. I have installed samba like this:
apt-get install smbfs
apt-get install cifs-utils
apt-get install openbsd-inetd inet-superserver smbldap-tools ldb-tools
apt-get install smbclient
apt-get install samba

One of those entries is a name for a group of packages that I installed individually. inet-superserver, I believe.

By the way, I've just started using Kubuntu. Years ago I tried KDE and didn't like it, but I am really liking this new version. I am sorry to hear that Ubuntu has dropped support. I think a complete name change is in order so that it can be introduced as a new distro. This will get some attention. Kubuntu - or whatever - deserves more attention than Mint.

Thanks for the work.

Have you tried adding the "users" option into your lines in fstab?
This should allow users to mount/unmount the shares.
