How do I explain to Gnome that a mount is a remote filesystem?

Asked by Stuart Bishop

I'm using Jungledisk and I've got a remote filesystem happily mounted via fuse that works great from the command line. However, when I browse the filesystem using Nautilus it is downloading files to generate thumbnails and deleting files moves them to a trash directory instead of just deleting them.

How can I tell my system that this filesystem is actually on another continent and it should be treated in the same way as, say, a WebDAV mount?

mount -l lists it as:

jungledisk on /media/jungledisk type fuse.jungledisk (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=me)

As a workaround you can disable all previews under edit->preferences->preview (set then to never). I don't think gnome can detect if a filesystem is remote when mounted using the command line or fstab.. (not sure though)

Can you help with this problem?
