cd to shared directory, let me explaine


OK so I am on my laptop downstairs and my main pc is upstairs. Both Ubuntu 11.04. The pc upstairs has a external USB drive with all my shared data. I am on my laptop and have the shared folder on my desktop. When I open a terminal window and cd Desktop and do an ls its not listed. I even tried this upstairs and ran in to the same issue. So how can I cd to this share in a terminal window.

How did you create the shared folder on the desktop.
Do you know what protocol are you using i.e. ssh, samba, nfs etc.

I would guess that you created the shared folder via Nautilus file browser which has both samba and ssh clients built in. The file system is not mounted so therefore you can't use cd. You can mount a samba share via cifs file syatem and ssh via sshfs fuse.

Most likely you will need to install both via apt-get. Lots of info can be found by googling.
