There is a way to change the GVFS mount point which by default is "~/.gvfs/" ? And by the way how to change the name of mounted folders which by default is "my folder on myserver.tld" ?

Is there any peculiar reason for another mount point? –  Takkat Apr 24 '12 at 12:06
Thanks for your answers: Stephen Myall : This answer just say that the mount point is ~/.gvfs Takkat : Beacaus .gvfs is hidden folder and non-GTK app can't access to gnome shortcuts (so we have to search for the mount point to access Samba shared folders) –  fabienhespul Apr 24 '12 at 12:10
You may be fine with smbnetfs then. –  Takkat Apr 24 '12 at 18:28
Maybe a hardlink? –  hexafraction Apr 24 '12 at 20:42
