I'm working on a desktop migration project. I am planning on using
Xubuntu for the Operating system, with the usual Linux desktop
applications (Seamonkey, Openoffice, Gimp, Inkscape, Scribus ect.)
I've been looking for a user land smb browser, similar to Microsoft
Network Neighborhood. I want Linux users to be able to browse and mount
shares from Windows or Samba servers.
I have looked at several and non of the ones I've found ultimately use
mount which is root access only. I'm wondering if there isn't a user
program which would allow the users to mount share after being validated.
Solaris has the mnt user command which can do this. But I'm really
looking for a GUI.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
