Linux – How to access a network folder in Ubuntu using the terminal


I am new to Ubuntu(and Linux for that matter) and I am trying to access files using the terminal. The network folder is on my Desktop, but when I go to the Desktop folder via the terminal, the network folder is not there.

How do I access files on a network folder via the terminal?

First go to:


cd /run/user/1000/gvfs/

In this directory you will find the name and access of the server you connected to. Enter this cd "name of your server"

Now you connected the server from terminal, but before that you need to enter it from the gui

The other way is to use; sshfs
