Can someone help out with how to get Windows Share drives, visible and browsable as bookmarks in Nautilus, into the system's "Places" listing/dialog used by browsers when downloading files (for example)?
In this screenshot, the grey column on the left is Nautilus (notice the Bookmarks), and the "Save File" dialog on the right is a browser download asking for location. I cannot navigate from that dialog to the bookmarked Windows network drives. The "goal" is to get the bookmarks of the M: and U: form in Nautilus into the "Places" options in the dialog on the right:
I know this has been asked in different ways, eliciting different answers. Here on the Ubuntu forums, I've read through fixing Windows Share browsing and mounting Samba shares with utf-8. On AskUbuntu, I've looked at using SMBNetFS, or simply browsing to ~/.gvfs, neither of which work for me.
FWIW, my network location has this form: smb://drivename.uni.ac.uk/school/HOME/username
A clear, all-steps-and-info-required tutorial would be wonderful! I'm using Ubuntu 13.04. Thanks!
