    Network share shortcut on desktop

    Well, I have 3 network shares and I have made 3 different shortcuts on my desktop to go directly to these locations, but since I upgraded from Xubuntu 12.04 to 13.04 I'm not able to open these locations anymore. I always get a message and sometimes another one:
    Code:
    The location isn't mounted
    or
    Code:
    Starter from untrusted shortcut 
    The desktopfile VU+.desktop is standing on an unsecure place and isn't marked as executable. If you do not trust the programma click cancel.
    url=smb://192.168.1.4/harddisk
    message.jpg

    If I press on " make an executable" then I get the message like the first one "The location isn't mounted".

    (some messages translated from Dutch)

    I also made a bookmark in the filemanager, like this: locations.jpg
    and then I can go to the share but I can't copy/paste or rename. I mean if I press the right mouse then I don't get the options like copy/paste and stuff like that.

    How can I solve this ?

    Right Click the desktop launcher > Select "Edit Launcher" > and change the command from:
    smb://192.168.1.4/harddisk
    To
    Code:
    thunar smb://192.168.1.4/harddisk

    I tried that on all the shortcuts but it's not working, it gives a message about a URI shedual.

    I can't reproduce your problem.

    Open up a terminal and run the command:
    Code:
    thunar smb://192.168.1.4/harddisk
    Same error message?

    No, if I do it in a terminal it's working.
    I also tried: pcmanfm smb://192.168.1.4/harddisk
    and that's also working.

    EDIT: Only thing that's not working is connecting to my share on my xbmc box, because it uses a username and password but probably with the right command it will work.

    Edit2: I'm able to make a starter on the desktop and see the files for 2 devices after I click "make executable", after that click I didn't see the message.

    Edit3: It seems that all is working now and I know what was wrong. Before I had url links instead of starters but before those worked

    Newly made starter, the one that is working:

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Name=VU+
    Comment=
    Exec=thunar smb://192.168.1.4/harddisk
    Icon=
    Path=
    Terminal=false
    StartupNotify=false

    The old one that didn't worked when I upgraded:

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Link
    Name=Vu+
    Comment=
    Icon=gnome-fs-ftp
    URL=thunar smb://192.168.1.4/harddisk
