Can't see shared folder with file upload

Postby Rinke on Sun Apr 07, 2013 6:47 am

Hi,

I installed linux mint 13 32-bit a while ago on a pc at home.
We have a sort of server (windows xp 32bit) here and it has one disk that is shared on the network.

Now i have this odd problem.
When i go to network i can see the disk and the files, i can add, delete en edit files.
But when i want to upload a file (an attachment in gmail, or a file to dropbox for example) is can't see the disk at the left menu.
Also i don't see any network button at all...


Any help would be welcome!!

Greets,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

After you go to "network" the remote share is mounted at this location:
Code: Select all
/home/your-user-name/.gvfs

You could bookmark that location so that it shows up on the left side panel of your application.

Thank you for your response!

I can access the folder(s) now but i can add it to the bookmarks at the left side menu.
When i add it (i click the + ) then he add it but immediatly he delete's it..

Greets,

EDIT: I also tried to add i to the bookmarks when i'am in "my computer", but then it will not show up when i try to upload it to gmail or something. After i tried to add it to bookmarks when i was uploading he did added it to the bookmarks in "my computer", so now i have a bunch of bookmarks in "my computer" and they don't show up when i try to upload.

Look at the contents of $HOME/.gtk-bookmarks.

Don't you have a line that looks something like this:
file:///home/altair/.gvfs
