Re: Trying to access NAS files, attempts with Gigolo
There are couple more things you can do to make your NAS more easily accessible:
1) Bookmark .gvfs
In Nautilus, reveal hidden files and folders with Ctrl-H. In your home folder, select .gvfs and click Bookmarks->Add bookmark (Ctrl-D). You can edit it with Ctrl-B and give it a meaningful name such as 'Fileservers'. Programs that support Bookmarks in their file selector will be able to use this shortcut to access the NAS directly.
NOTE: In 12.10, the location of .gvfs has changed. It is now in /run/user/<yourname>/gvfs
2) Symlink you NAS
Even better, navigate inside gvfs. If you are connected to your NAS, you should have it listed inside gvfs; it's a faily long and complicated name. Copy its full location to the clipboard. In a terminal, enter:
Now you should have a folder inside your home directory that will lead directly to your NAS contents and which can be accessed by any Linux application.
ln -s </full/path/to/gvfs/smbshare> ~/NAS
