Making remote folders accessible in applications

Postby imperium2335 on Wed Jan 23, 2013 3:13 am

Hi,

I am trying to access a remote folder on my Windows server (specifically from Netbeans). But the only folders/files I can get to are those on my local machine.

Is there a way to make a remote folder usable just like a normal folder so I can work with my remote files?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well, first you have to connect to and mount the remote share. If you do that though Nemo/Nautilus/Caja then your Windows share is mounted to one of the following locations depending on what version of Mint you are using:

/home/user-name/.gvfs

OR

/run/user/user-name/gvfs

You can create a bookmark to these locations so that it appears in the left side panel of Nemo/Nautilus/Caja and show up in the Open and Save dialog boxes in your applications.
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.
