How to browse a network location added to Ubuntu "other locations"

Post by user3111 »

How do I browse a network location added to "other locations" on Ubuntu 20? See image - left side is the directory tree in Ubuntu's file manager and on the right side is the view in XnView. Can I "mount" or "symlink" so it shows somewhere in the directory accessible to XnView?

It's the "Shared..." folder I want to view in XnView.

I believe it is samba. It is a "normal" windows share. I access it from my MacOS and Linux via 192.xxx.xxx.xx

Samba share are not supported, you need to mount it as folder
