Is kinda quirky. Like say, I've got images on the local computer, I get thumbnails just fine, and all is well.
But, when browsing images over the network, I get just the basic icon, no thumbnails...
and if I double click or right-click > open with gimp (or other image editor/viewer), I get a message that the format isn't recognized...
but if I copy it over to the local drive, the thumbnail pops up, and it plays nice with the rest of the system.
Short of actually mounting the shares the old way, so they appear to be local directories, is there anything that can be done to fix the network browsing issue?
The other problem is, programs like XMMS, won't look at the network shares, even if they're connected (not mounted, but connected ... similar to windows "Map Network Drive"), so mp3's have been flat out... but I can double click on them and they will play in totem-xine without a problem... but if I right-click and tell it to open in XMMS, no dice. Same with Beep, Rythmbox, etc. The problem with totem-xine is it's a hog.
Basically, I just want the functionality that mounting the shares gave me... without having to mount them, and letting it work as if I was in windows browsing my network through My Network Places. If that's not possible, I guess I'll resort to making a mounting script... but it certainly would be nice to get it working.
