What's this?

commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again.

Delete that bloated snippets file you've been using and share your personal repository with the world. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.

Get involved!

You can sign-in using OpenID credentials, or register a traditional username and password.

First-time OpenID users will be automatically assigned a username which can be changed after signing in.

UpGuard checks and validates configurations for every major OS, network device, and cloud provider.

Stay in the loop…

Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

Mount an smb share on linux

Mount an smb share with this command. other options -ousername=$USERr,gid=$groupname,scope=rw

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

I prefer fusesmb. It allows you to mount a whole smb server in one mount point without requiring root privileges. Just do:

fusesmb /path/to/mount

Then at /path/to/mount, you get a set of folders similar to what you'd see in Nautilus under smb:///

You want to use cifs instead of smbfs. smbfs breaks on newer implementations of SMB on win32, and has been deprecated for a while.

mount -t cifs //$server/share /local/mount -o rw,username=$USER
