How to automatically mount network shares?

Hi, I’m new to Manjaro.

I tried to mount a windows share automatically at boot up. So I did:

  1. I created a mounting point.
  2. I created a file, .smbcredentials, in which I added my user name and password.
  3. I edited /etc/fstab. Add:
    //windows IP/share /run/media/myusername/share cifs credentials=/home/myusername/.smbcredentials, iocharset=utf8, gid=1000, uid=1000,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
  4. Tested sudo mount -a, it works fine.

But after reboot, the shared folder is not mounted. How to mount it automatically?

Have you checked similar threads?

I’ve read other threads and fixed the problem. Thanks

This is because your network is not up and the share is therefore not mountable.
