Viewing Windows Shares in Nautilus

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

I'm looking for additional documentation on the smb:/// URL type for
browsing Windows shares. Basically, I need to know if there is a way to
configure Nautilus to see folders for shares with names that have
spaces, special characters or just have long names. For example, the
share name:

Chris' Stuff

is not visible in the Nautilus file viewer, whereas a share named:


is visible.

Moreover, if, in the Nautilus window, you use the URL:


You can browse the contents of the "Chris' Stuff" share, even though you
can not see the folder for the share itself.

Hope all of this makes sense. Ideas welcome!
