Prefect app to mount smb shares in kde (perhaps other DE too...). Exactly what I needed. Before I used some scripts and CLI to mount the shares! Thanks for giving us this good pice of software. Gianluca
This program makes very loud sounds on errors (seriously, it got me scared and cause ear pain). I cannot find an option to turn sound off. Cannot find initial basic instructions on how to use it.
I absolutely love Smb4k... it will not only browse your local network neighborhood (on my FreeBSD and Linux boxes... and my Solaris boxes too I believe) - but it will also mount shares, etc. and you can set it to auto-mount shares upon startup (and you can have Smb4k started automatically upon login, etc...) - so, overall, it's all I use for *nix <--> Windows Integration... LOVE IT!!!
