You know I never noticed this before
I run Xubuntu 12.04 not Mint so I was going to tell you to just click on the network bookmark on the left side panel of thunar.
I have Mint14 XFCE in a VBox guest on this system. In Mint there is no Network bookmark in thunar. Um ... I don't know if that's a bug or what.
I just did this and it survives a reboot so see if it works for you:
Open a terminal and type:
- Code: Select all
Select the little "network" folder icon in the toolbar:
And drag it to the side panel:
When you want to see the network shares choose that bookmark.
Surely this must be a bug - I'll have to investigate.
