Since /tmp is read/write for everybody, then if you cannot write to a
smb mounted volume it is probably because the access rights on the
remote smb server do not permit writing with the user/password
combination you used to browse the server. If no user/password was
prompted, then "guest%%" was used and that user probably does not have
write access on the remote server. Best thing is to configure the remote
server *not* to allow browsing unless a valid user/password combination
is used. Otherwise you can set the user/password combination by means of
the mcs-manager or the environment variable SMB_USER.
OTH, you can also just list the mount characteristics and mount point
you like in /etc/fstab and mount with the fstab plugin instead (fstab
and xfsamba plugin will talk to each other if both are installed).
