    location of thunar's mounted samba shares?

    I have two systems, one xubuntu trusty and one ubuntu trusty which i stripped of unity and uinstalled xubuntu-deskto. I want to ask about both, hopefully the answer is the same.

    In thunar I have no problem surfing to my windows shares by using CTRL+L, smb://something/something

    but when I do that, doesn't that share get mounted by thunar at some point of my filesystem? I would like a quick way to access it via filesystem without having to mount it with mount (which i wasn't able to do yet, even if i tried lots of syntaxes). I read that thunar (or i don't know what) mounts the shares on $HOME/.gvfs, but mine's always empty.

    Any clues?

    Thanks!

    gvfs is being used, but the locations where that is placed has changed between the different releases. Plus those mounts do not show up in the /etc/mtab, so ... you'll just have to look.

    Try /var and /media/
    The label of the partition should be there.

    Well I found it! It's so far fetched!

    /run/user/(my uid)/gvfs/smb-share:server=(server),share=(share)/
