Hi.

I have an NFS share in my fstab set so that users can mount it 
(users,hard,intr,atime,noauto,rw,dev,noexec,suid). The mount works perfectly 
from a user account when I do it from a console, but I have just made a 
Desktop icon (via the right-click menu > Link to Device > NFS) which when I 
click it tells me that only root can mount disks.

How can I fix this?

Also, the icon's right-click menu is missing the "unmount" option that I am 
accustomed to seeing in KDE3 if I access it after mounting the share manually. 
Is this just because it wasn't mounted via the icon or do I need to do 
something to enable it? Or is it another nice detail from KDE3 that I'm going 
to have to learn to live without?

Thanks for looking,

Mark
