Description Martin Samek 2009-08-08 14:24:26 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.3.0)
Compiler:          gcc version 4.3.2 (Gentoo 4.3.2-r3 p1.6, pie-10.1.5) 
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

When I try to mount a NFS volume via NFS shortcut, which I added at my desktop, I get this error:

Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: only root can do this.

Of course my rights are ok. I can mount/umount this volume in the konsole as a user. Here is appropriate entry from my /etc/fstab:      nfs     rsize=8192,wsize=8192,nolock,user,noauto        0 0
Comment 1 Martin Samek 2009-08-08 14:28:56 UTC
When is the NFS volume mounted manually and I try to unmount it via NFS shortcut. Then I get this error:

Could not unmount device.
The reported error was:
sh: /bin/umount/home/marsark/Desktop/NFS: is not directory

It is obvious that there is some bug in the path.
Comment 2 Dario Andres 2009-08-08 17:48:49 UTC
The unmount path bugs is related to KIO (I'm fixing it right now).
Comment 3 Dario Andres 2009-08-08 17:56:48 UTC
Mountpoint and desktopfile path switches bug, fixed at:
4.4 -> svn rev.1008897 , 4.3.x -> svn rev. 1008898
Comment 4 Dario Andres 2009-08-08 18:17:04 UTC
Unmount command + path being merged (missing space) bug, fixed at:
4.4 -> svn rev 1008901 , 4.3.x -> 1008904.
Comment 5 Dario Andres 2009-08-08 18:22:50 UTC
So, the two problems you described in comment 1 are already fixed.

Can you check this:
- Open Dolphin and browse to your Desktop folder (or where you NFS device link is), then try to mount it or unmount it. 
Confirm me that you are getting the same error (and therefore, this is not a Plasma bug, but a KIO one). 

BTW, this looks related to bug 172023

Comment 6 Martin Samek 2009-08-08 23:01:30 UTC
Yes, I can confirm that. I get same error when mount/unmount NFS link from Dolphin. My NFS link is placed in ~/Desktop/ and the Desktop directory is set to be displayed in Folder view widget at my Plasma desktop.
Comment 7 Martin Samek 2009-08-08 23:33:54 UTC
I think, that problem with mounting of NFS or HDD (as in bug 172023) may be also caused by wrong path given to mount.
Comment 8 Dario Andres 2009-08-09 00:04:04 UTC
IIRC, the path given to mount is the proper one. The problem I fixed was related to the unmount() call.
Comment 9 Martin Samek 2009-09-04 10:49:16 UTC
Still remains in 4.3.1. No I am able to mount from konsole and umount by icon on desktop. So umount has been fixed, but mount still waiting to be fixed.
Any ideas?
Comment 10 Martin Samek 2009-10-07 15:26:24 UTC
Mount doesn't work in kde 4.3.2.
Comment 11 Dario Andres 2009-10-10 17:35:10 UTC
- Do you agree on merging this with bug 172023 ?
Comment 12 Martin Samek 2009-10-11 00:51:10 UTC
Yes, I agree. It seems to be same issue.
