    Ok, I just got off the "Google" with some search terms, and can't find an answer.

    I can connect fine to a Windows Home Server, but I can't figure out how to permanently save the credentials, so I can just open the folders without logging in each time.

    The first time I connected, I filled out the info for the Windows folders:

    Name
    Workgroup
    Password.

    And in Mint, I chose save always or whatever.

    But every time I connect, I first get a pop-up box for a password for my default keyring, and then I get the log on box for the shares, but it has all the Mint info (a different user name, etc...) that I have to change back to the credentials for the Windows share.

    I checked my keyring and there is a saved entry for Jack@server/smb with the correct workgroup and password...I just can't get Mint to remember it.

    Is there way I can just double click a Windows share and have it open?
