Hi, New to forum and Ubuntu, but not new to PC's having started out using DOS a long time ago.
I have installed Ubuntu (the latetest stable version) on an old laptop for the sole purpose of allowing me to access files on my NAS drive. I can see the NAS drive and its shares using the home folder. I need to be able to drag and drop files from one share (or folder in a share) to another share or folder share. The way I have been doing this in WIndows XP is by mapping the NAS drive and creating desktop shortcuts of the folders I want to work with and then simply drag and drop files from one to the other. I am unable to find how to do this (or a similar) on Ubuntu. I get an error when I try to create a link to the NAS shares, telling me I can't create dynamic links to a NAS share. The NAS (a Netgear ReadyNAS) uses Linux so I am not sure why this would be. Can anyone give me some pointers on how to do this, without having to learn backdoor access to Ubuntu? I would like to do this simply by using the GUI. I assume this is possible and it just me being stupid. TIA.
