aaaaahhhhhh... this is what i get if i run smemount (with out any parameters) from a terminal -
Can't locate LWP/UserAgent.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.14.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.14.2 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.14 /usr/share/perl/5.14 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/bin/smemount line 22.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/smemount line 22.
I do have access to the folder as i only just created it from a terminal with mkdir before trying to mount to it - i was trying to make sure the file manager wasn't creating some hidden file if i created it with that instead of a terminal.
