I am still getting used to the new look of the forum , which I must add is quite nice.
But I noticed that in the "thread tools" drop down menu , there is no 'Mark As Solved' . Does that option no longer exist ? If so , what procedure should I follow to indicate that my query is solved ?
Rather than necro-bumping a thread, you should start a new one. Since the solutions here don't work for you - hardly surprising since they are from 2008 - the fact that this is marked as [solved] is unlikely to get you much assistance.
I saw a "solved" thread with this topic but it did not help me so please forgive me for starting a new thread.
I am running ubuntu 13.10 and I update regularly (checking daily). I recently (about 10 days ago) installed cifs to mount shares on a network storage device (the shares are presented as windows share to the network). All worked fine until 2 days ago.
