That is a fair assumption. Since you're logged in, your credentials are known to the E-smith. Is there a variable in Linux like $PASSWORD or $SMBPASSWORD? If so, replace the crdentials=./.creds.txt with username=$USER,password=$PASSWORD and it should mount during login... Another thing I'll have to try tomorrow.

From the samba.org page on SMBMOUNT:


specifies the username to connect as. If this is not given, then the environment variable USER is used. This option can also take the form "user%password" or "user/workgroup" or "user/workgroup%password" to allow the password and workgroup to be specified as part of the username.

specifies the SMB password. If this option is not given then the environment variable PASSWD is used. If it can find no password smbmount will prompt for a passeword, unless the guest option is given.

Looks promising.
