Would this work with samba shares?
Authored by: schiznik on Jan 26, '05 11:14:21PM
I'm trying to set this up between my linux server and my powerbook.

At the moment, Im only using samba on my win/lin/mac network, & I'd rather not set up AFP on the server unless I have to.... (I can run an AFP share on my (debian) linux box can't I? I should be able to, it seems to do every other type of file share.....)

currently im connected to two shares on my server, the first, my home folder (schiznik) and the second my proposed iTunes share (audio)

This is the output of ls -hla /Volumes/:

ishidourou:/Volumes schiznik$ ls -lha

As the numbered shares arent in any order other than the order I mount them, is there any (command line) way I can tell which is which to put into the applescript above?

To answer my own question...

When the share is mounted on the desktop, create an alias and move it to somewhere. I used ~/samba/server/MusicShare/

I also went through the 4 comps on my lan making a load of aliases thus making a nice click-to-mount list of shares that turn into directories when mounted :)
