    The problem I have with Gigolo is that I cannot copy/move files to the mounted shares due to permissions. I cannot find a way to mount them read/write

    To be more visible of the progress, you need to drag&drop or copy/paste from remote folder (double click to make Thunar open a folder window for this remote system) to one of your folder (double click, say your "home"). This way, you can see the progress.

    Thankyou, thankyou. Been messing about with this for ages... and always gone back to gnome 'cos it's such a no-brainer in Nautilus. It's a bit of a faff having to open shares via gigolo, and it can't find any workgroups in its sidebar browser (or at least I can't make it see...) so you have to know the name of your remote target. Hopefully, Thunar will integrate network browsing in the future... though the developer doesn't seem keen.

    With the read/write issue, foxy123, have you made yourself a member of the "fuse" group? I didn't have to do anything else.

    Right. The share I've checked read/write access to is on one of my own machines running XP (i.e. simple file sharing) and with the same username.... so I've left log-in details in gigolo's bookmark blank. I'll try it at work and get back to you (shared volume on a debian server).

    Re: How to: Xubuntu - Thunar Native Windows Network Browsing

    I used to run Win XP on the same computer I run xubuntu 9.04 today. Reaching windows shares from this computer (in Windows days was never a problem). Today I can only access the shares from xubuntu using firefox by entering smb://server/

    I tried to follow the steps in this threds with no success. I can se the workgroup. click on it to se the computer on which the windos share are, then I can click on the computer to see all the shares. Now If I click on any of the shares I will get an empty file list and "connection timeout". Any ideas on this? As I stated above I can reach the shares from the same xubuntu computer using Firefox.

    Well. I have done some more reading in this and other threads with no success. The faults are:
    "Connection time out" and "Transport endpoint is not connected"

    Have to say it works fine from the terminal, a long as you don't navigate the shares with Thunar.

    Some says this is a "bug" lib-related samba/fuse other mentioned dual port issues in smb (http://threebit.net/mail-archive/samba/msg01522.html)

    My "work around" was to have smb mounts in fstab, so no network browsing for me currently (this will at least decrease my wasted time and increase the Wife Satisfaction Index): http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=288534

    Glad to here from you who solved this issue in another way or confirmed a bug somewhere (provide a link please).

    Re: How to: Xubuntu - Thunar Native Windows Network Browsing

    Hello,
    I'm using xubuntu 9.04
    O.O.B I used giglo to mount my M$ shares (gig doesn't see workgroups or allow browsing of course) and that let me acess my files from some programs using the open or save as option but not all programs. It simply shows the shares in the bookmarks on the side panel. The shares of coarse don't show in thunar's places.

    I tried to apt-get gvs-fuse but it said not found........

    If there is another light weight alternative to thunar that will use the same bookmarks as the open option in totem I think that would be great. any sugestions?

    oh without adding sources since I'd like to keep this clean as possable.

    Re: How to: Xubuntu - Thunar Native Windows Network Browsing

    sorry, I should have known it was a type-o

    but with those installed it still didn't work so I started messing around with mounting with fusesmb in a terminal.

    After changing permissions and groups around it worked fine. Now I should be able to access my shares with any app

    **Just checked, gigolo still cant see workgroups but it opens locations now in thunar. Found that it was mounting the shares in /home/username/.gvfs**
