Howto use Jags

Note: If you're upgrading from a previous version of jags you should run the upgrade-script located in your jags source dir.

The first time you enter Jags you should take a look at the preferences (In the menu choose: Settings->Preferences) dialog and set the right options for you. If you don't know your workgroup you may try workgroup. If you can't browse your network and think it might be because you don't know your workgroup: start xterm, type nmblookup -M "-", then choose one of the ip-s there and type smbclient -L some_ip -N. Now you should get a long (or maybe very short) list of workgroups. Choose one of them and type it into the preferences dialog.

You should also select a filebrowser and a mount-dir. The mount-dir should be an empty directory somewhere on your system.

When you're done with the preferences you can klick on the '+'-signs to expand the "network". When you found a share you want to mount you just have to double-click on the share. This will mount the share (if you have permissions to mount samba-shares) and open your filebrowser. If the share you have choosen requires a password a dialog will appear and ask you for a password (intrduced in jags-0.18).

All the shares you mount will also appear in the Mounted shares window, choose Shares->Mountes shares. There you can unmount them, change mountpath and decide wheter you want Jags to mount the share next time you start jags or not. You can also run Jags without showing any windows with the --nowindows command line option. This might be useful if you want to mount shares when you start x-windows or when you log in. Then you can use Jags to handle all your samba-shares.

If the program doesn't seem to work: try to run it as root. It won't harm your system. It can be a little bit tricky to setup permissions for normal users to mount things. Basicly you should do the following: "chmod u+s smbmount". This will set smbmount suid. Don't do this unless your know exactely what you're doing! Setting smbmount suid may be dangerous to your system. It shouldn't harm your system but you're warned... You might also want to set smdumount suid.

If you need help: send a mail to me or post a question in the forums over at my forums on Sourceforge. I'll try to answer your question as soon as possible but I'm a student with other things to do than give support on this program.
