Since I have migrated to Ubuntu 14.04, I am unable to access sftp through Nautilus.

If I enter "sftp://user@sshserver" in Nautilus (ctrl+L), I got the error message:

Sorry, could not display all the contents of “vmalep (sftp)”: The specified location is not supported

Very confused because it was working with the same server and with the previous version. Same problem to access another ssh server laptop in the same LAN.

Thanks in advance for your support! Pierre


It seems that installing gvfs-backends solve the problem...

sudo apt-get install gvfs-backends
  • it is installed but still "you don't have permission to access the requested location"? – Aquarius Power Jan 22 at 16:06
