Bug#586024: kde-plasma-desktop fails to honor "user" flag for mount.cifs
I have two mount points for cifs shares. With the current cifs-utils, I can mount those shares as a normal user like so:
The relevant fstab entry:
//files.ci.juneau.ak.us/james$ /home/james/G cifs acl,rw,user,noauto,credentials=/home/james/.nt/creds 0 0
Mounting the share in konsole:
james@mis-jz-lnx:~$ mount G
james@mis-jz-lnx:~$ df -hT
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 ext3 73G 8.1G 61G 12% /
tmpfs tmpfs 1.8G 8.0K 1.8G 1% /lib/init/rw
udev tmpfs 1.8G 220K 1.8G 1% /dev
tmpfs tmpfs 1.8G 0 1.8G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sdb1 ext3 37G 21G 14G 61% /home
cifs 8.7T 5.6T 3.1T 65% /home/james/G
I have a desktop shortcut for this share, created by right clicking on the desktop, selecting create new -> link to device -> hard disk device. Then clicking on the device tab and selecting the cifs mount from the device dropdown list.
However when I click on the resulting desktop shortcut to the device, KDE tells me that I cannot mount the share:
Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: only root can do that
This definitely worked in KDE 3.5.9 (Lenny), and I seem to recall it worked in earlier versions of Squeeze before the cifs-utils package had it's suid security issue.
I expected it to work again now that cifs-utils has it's setuid behavior restored.
I'm kind of guessing as to the KDE package I should file against. If this isn't the appropriate package please accept my apologies & push it to the correct one.
