Mount a SMB Samba share in fstab Linux Debian/Ubuntu/Centos

Add the following to fstab where 192.168.1.125/Media is the samba share and where /home/homeuser/Downloads is where you want to mount.

Change user and pass to what is needed (if no pass is required it still works fine with the below).

//192.168.1.125/Media /home/homeuser/Downloads cifs        user=guest,pass=bla 0 0


mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.1.125/Media,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
       need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.


*Make sure you install cifs-utils or equivalent so you have the mount.cifs binary
