Hi,

I had the same problem with many other in Natty Ubuntu 11.04. However, I had to research this for a couple of weeks before finally finding a solution that is proven and also implemented and tested. I used a tool called a gigolo , which you can install from standard repositories in Natty.

To install using apt-get please type in the following command in the terminal (found in Applications > Accessories > terminal).

$ sudo apt-get install gigolo  Also, it has a dependency which should be installed automatically, but in case not please install it like this:

$ sudo apt-get install fuse. Also, you will have to make a slight change depending on your preference ( I do this),

Open gigolo: Go to Edit > Preferences > Interface

  • Select “show side panel “
  • Select “start minimized in notification area”
  • Disable “show auto-connect error messages”
  • Please browse the share using “network tab” on gigolo, also bookmark it and choose auto connect option as well, that will save time and will connect automatically when the computer starts.
  • Now, all you have to do is to make it a start up item ,
  • So go to System > Preferences > startup  Applications > Add > Command = gigolo
  • That’s it, you are done:
  • Please note a few things that might be useful as well.
  • If the network drive is not accessible  gigolo is set to scan the network every 60 secs by default.

Hope that helps:

Cheers
