-Collection of useful linux tips for everyone.

-===== Printing =====

-  * [[admin:​printing | Printer configuration]] 
- 
-===== File shares ===== 
- 
-Mount the shares as a normal user under your home directory using option noperms. Noperms disables local file access permissions checking, so the local UID, GID and permissions information can be whatever, they are ignored. You have to mount under your home directory to prevent other users on your workstation from using the shares you mounted. Otherwise they would have your identity and access rights on the share. So make sure only you can access the mount points. 
- 
-==== How to Mount ==== 
- 
-The general form is:  
- 
-<​code>​mount.cifs //​server/​share mountpoint -o noperms,​user=LUT/​username</​code>​ 
- 
-**For umount you must use umount.cifs command.** It seems to need the absolute path to mount point, otherwise it leaves a stale entry in /​etc/​mtab. ​ 
- 
-=== Mount examples ===

-<​code>​ 
-mkdir /​home/​laakkone/​mnt/​filestite_tite

-mount.cifs //​diso.it.lut.fi/​kurssit ​ /​home/​laakkone/​mnt/​diso_kurssit -o noperms,​user=LUT/​laakkone 
-</​code>​
