I have tried mounting it in fstab by making an entry in fstab like below but that renders the system unbootable.I have now commented out this line. Perhaps there is an error in the syntax ??
//192.168.0.10/share /media/nas smb username=loginname,password=password defaults 0 0
I have not tried CLI, as I am not sure how to do that .
If it available in the GUI and therefore the desktop, why would that mean that some programs are not able to 'see' the share if they are within the same desktop login ?
I apologise for my lack of knowledge. I have only recently been getting stuck into Linux/Ubuntu and have no intention of returning to Windoze. Each problem I have encountered with Linux, I have been able to overcome with help in the forums or with Google.
