    I try to use afpfs-ng with the suggested fstab-entry under under ubuntu 9.04. I installed the 0.8.1-deb-package and a direct mounting works flawlessly. But when only mounting with fstab, it says :
    The afpfs daemon does not appear to be running for uid 1000, let me start it for you
    Could not find server (afpfsd)
    Error in starting up afpfsd

    afpfsd is in place under /usr/bin and if i start it directly, it works as assumed. Is there any way i can load /usr/bin/afpfsd before mounting the afp-shares? Any path variable he is missing when i do an sudo mount -a ???ß

      A few questions:

      - once you've done the mount directly, what's the output of 'afp_client status' ?

      - what does your fstab look like?

      - does the following work:
        a) as uid 1000, run "afpfsd -d" (and record the output please)
        b) run 'mount -a' as root

      Let me know...
