Some do and some don't
I have used Linux on and off over the past 15 years. Linux has been the solution to a lot of my networking problems over the years. I work in a school and I am keen to setup Linux labs for the students. Users can logon with their active directory [Micoroft accounts] and can access their files off server drives. All this is made easy with the help of CentrifyDC. I can simply access a network share and CentrifyDC handles the authentication.
My issue is that some applications will see mounted samba shares and some applications won't. For example I can open and save files to my Windows servers using applications such as Openoffice, Gnumeric, Abiword. However apps like DIA will only show local drives. Maybe some applications use the default file manager where the mounts are bookmarked whilst other use their own file manager?
Does anyone know a way around this?
