Is there any specific reason why you are using SAMBA for shared drives
Yeah bookmarking is the simple solution in Peppermint, not so simple in Linux Lite which has the thunar file manager as there is no bookmark option in the taskbar, I can add any local folder to the side pane by right clicking>create shortcut>add to side pane, but as I'm already inside the folder I cant do that, if I mount the share (ie open it) I can view the folder in mounted volumes but when I right click on it there's no option to add to side pane I do have the option to add to desktop but if I select that a message pops up telling me it can't create the shortcut because it's not a local file
In Thunar (1.6.3) after mounting the share, navigate to where it displays the folders.Then right click on a folder -> Send to -> Side Pane (Create Shortcut)This should add a shortcut to the side pane in the format:smb://<servername>/<share>/<folder>On my system this survives reboot
So what was wrong with this ??http://http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=11105.0
go the whole hog..........
Have a look in the help>about menu item of Thunar for the version.
Doesn't Thunar allow you to drag and drop folders into the left hand panel to create shortcuts ?
I tried that I get an error message saying "the path "public on 192.168.2.2" does not refer to a directory"
Your "Public" is the share name, go one step deeper like:smb://192.168.2.2/public/<folder>
sudo gedit ~/Linux1-shares.desktop
[Desktop Entry]Type=ApplicationIcon=folder-publicshareName=Linux1 SharesComment=Browse the shares on Linux1Exec=thunar smb://192.168.2.2StartupNotify=trueTerminal=falseCategories=FileManager;Utility;Core;GTK;MimeType=x-directory/normal;inode/directory;
You could always create a launcher in your home folder
