I am looking to see if there is a way to find the exact command nautilus uses to mount network shares.


I find that the specific way that nautilus mounts network shares is better than my current way of using the command line and I want to find out why that is the case.

enter image description here

I'm able to mount the network share using the following command:

sudo mount -t cifs -o vers=3.1.1,rw,noperm,username=gfair,password='********',iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,soft,user // /home/gfair/stargate/g


I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver. 4.18.0-24-generic #25~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 20 11:13:08 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Considering it depends on it, it's probably using gvfs

    Interestingly, when I try to use gvfs-mount it says that its been deprecated and to use gio mount instead Jun 28, 2019 at 22:53
