Ubuntu: How to shift my shared folder from /mnt to Desktop in ubuntu?


I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 in my MAC using virtual box. I mounted two of my folders in MAC using virtual box. But the problem is, I created my shared folder called "share" inside /mnt.

How do I get the Share folder to appear on the desktop and how do I get it to auto-mount on start-up?


auto mount on startup should be a virtualbox setting when you set up the share , you will need guest additions installed to use the share i believe.

you could simply link the directory from /mnt to your desktop

this would be done in the terminal by typing

ln -s /mnt/share ~/Desktop  

you may need to try sudo !! if it's denied.
or I'm sure there's an option to show network servers on desktop , most likely in your desktop settings , I don't remember 10.04 well
