[Solved] gvfs-mount deprecated

Post by Pastcal » Wed Aug 15, 2018 11:11 am

Hmm, I'm getting a 'deprecated' message when I use gvfs-mount, for example:

$ gvfs-mount smb://192.168.0.4/tmp
This tool has been deprecated, use 'gio mount' instead.
See 'gio help mount' for more info.


However the gio mount help screen is not really all that much 'help'. Searching took me to this page: https://developer.gnome.org/gio/stable/GMount.html
which is also less clear than an un-muddied lake. I've tried all the options but non seems to mount the share. So does anyone have any idea of how to replace gvfs-mount.

This might be better:
https://developer.gnome.org/gio/stable/gio.html

I think this might be more than just yet-another-man page:

8 ways to mount smbfs - maybe you won't need gio:

However the gio mount help screen is not really all that much 'help'.
I ran into "gio" from gvfs-trash missing...I'd been waffling back and forth between mint 18.3 and 19, and that was the straw which made me decide to stick with 18.3.
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!
Your data and OS are backed up....right?
Mint 18.3 Xfce/fluxbox/pulse-less
