Where is the Nautilus share point?


If I go through the Network option in Nautilus everything works fine and I get a Desktop icon where I can browse the content. On my openSUSE (11.3 & gnome 2.30.2) I find the same share in my .gvfs so I can access the share via the terminal as well.

On my debian 6.0.1 (with gnome 2.30.1) I get the desktop icon if I go through the procedure as above but I find nothing in the .gvfs folder.

Does anyone know I to access this kind of share through the terminal? I am aware that it is possible to go the fstab route but I am also a little curious why this works in openSUSE but not debian?

Thanks, but it didn't seem to help.

I ran (as su)

Code:
/sbin/modprobe fuse
/etc/init.d/gdm restart
in a terminal session. After that I log onto the debian box in
gnome session and mount the shared drives as before.

I forgot to mention that I am accessing the debian box via NXMachine. Perhaps
that causes some issues?

Here's a procedure you can use to test GVFS.

First make sure there is no gvfsd already running for this user.

Code:
killall gvfsd
Now try starting up dbus and gvfs, and mounting a filesystem.

Code:
$ dbus-launch 
No protocol specified
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-uU4GaKE4UE,guid=2354bd79cd80fa0a06b8f5c700001cf5
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_PID=5080
$ export DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-uU4GaKE4UE,guid=2354bd79cd80fa0a06b8f5c700001cf5
$ export DBUS_SESSION_BUS_PID=5080
$ /usr/libexec/gvfsd &
[1] 6569
$ gvfs-mount ftp://ftp.free.fr/
Enter password for ftp on ftp.free.fr
User: anonymous
Password: <anonymous>
$ ls -l .gvfs/ftp\ on\ ftp.free.fr/

drwx------ 1 xfce users 0 Jun 14 23:30 stats
drwx------ 1 xfce users 0 Jun 15 14:27 tmp
$
When done, kill gvfsd and the dbus daemon that was started

Code:
killall gvfsd
kill ${DBUS_SESSION_BUS_PID}
