I am running lmdx and things are great. I work in a environment where I have have to mount smb shares. In thunar, hit ctrl-l and type smb://path/to/share and all it good. What I can't figure out is what is happening in the background. I want to know more about what is going on under the covers and most importantly, I want to know how to get to the mounted shares from the terminal.
I know in gnome, the shares were mounted in .gvfs in home dir but that does not seem to be what is going on here.
Basically I would like 2 bits of info.
1. what is going on behind the scenes when I mount these drives? (link to explanations is fine)
2. where on the local file system are things getting mounted? (terminal access is important to me)
Sorry if this is elementary. I just wasn't finding anything in all my searches.
