    launch nautilus on samba folder from remote host


    Hi,
    this might be an easy one for you:
    I log in a remote host ("remote") from my local computer("local"), and I want to open nautilus in "local" on the path where I am in in "remote"

    ssh to the local works, I did the ssh-keygen and ssh-copy-id story.
    Launching nautilus via samba works as well:
    Code:
    local:~$ nautilus smb://RemoteServer/UserNameRemote/path/to/folder &
    but
    Code:
    remote%  ssh -X UserNameLocal@IPaddress " nautilus smb://RemoteServer/UserNameRemote/path/to/folder &"
    Initializing nautilus-share extension
    Opens nautilus in my local my ~/ folder with the following pop-up:
    PHP Code:
    Couldn't display "smb://hardy.few.vu.nl/amarin/080828rec/090129lhcii/fit".
    Nautilus cannot handle smb: locations. 
    What am I doing wrong?
    Cheers,
    Alex

    Are you running this command on the remote machine?
    Code:
    remote%  ssh -X UserNameLocal@IPaddress " nautilus smb://RemoteServer/UserNameRemote/path/to/folder &"
    It looks like you are running a command on the remote machine to run a command on your local machine?

    When you show remote% is that the ssh command prompt from the remote machine?

    Yes, remote% is the remote machine. Exactly, I want to run a command on the remote machine to launch nautilus on the local machine.

    remote Nautilus requires dbus

    Try this:
    ssh -X <remote-server>
    #$ dbus-launch nautilus --no-desktop

    You should be able to user all the nautilus connect modes. smb:/// ssh://, etc.
