You can access the mount point under /run

Not very glamorous but works

I don't know how to do /run. Can you give me an example? I am trying to send my archive file to smb:///tower/archives/ from Archive Manager.

What is the output of:

mount

Thanks

If you select to save in /home/loren/.gvfs then you will see a folder for the share.

Archive Manager does not show hidden files.

Then run:

ln -s ~/.gvfs ~/shares

And it will be visible

Thanks for all your hard work. The fix is good.
