I'm trying to create a symlink to a Samba share so that I can work remotely on a rails app.
However all the files appear empty as seen in the cat command. I even tried opening with nautilus to connect (the normal way) and still all files appear empty when I open them with gedit. I have XP running in VirtualBox. I'm able to see/edit all the shared files/folders from the virtual XP (using SMB, not VBoxSharedFolderFS), but not from my host OS Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit!
kaushik:~$ ln -s ~/.gvfs/_confidential_\ on\ macbookpro-4303/ _confidential_
kaushik:~$ cd _confidential_
kaushik:_confidential_$ cd my_subdir
app config db deploy doc dump.rdb Gemfile Gemfile.lock integrations lib LICENSE log mobile omnitmp public Rakefile README script spec test tmp vendor
kaushik:my_subdir$ cat Gemfile
Any help is appreciated coz I'm desperately looking for a solution. Thanks in advance.
