NAME
gvfs - GIO virtual file system DESCRIPTION
GIO provides a VFS API to GLib applications. It includes a 'local' implementation using POSIX. gvfs provides implementations that go beyond that and allow to access files and storage using many protocols, such as ftp, http, sftp, dav, obexftp, etc. It also provides support for trash folders, for cd burning and for monitoring interesting devices and volumes on the computer. Applications use gvfs indirectly, by means of GIO loading the gvfs module that implements the GIO extension points. The gvfs support for volume monitoring is included in a separate loadable module. The actual gvfs implementation is distributed over a number of processes. None of these are expected to be started from the commandline, except for debugging purposes. Main processes: o gvfsd - the main gvfs daemon o gvfs-fuse-daemon - mounts gvfs as a fuse filesystem o gvfsd-metadata - writes gvfs metadata Volume monitors: o gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor - a udisks-based volume monitor o gvfs-afc-volume-monitor - a volume monitor for Apple iPhone/iPod Touch devices Mount backends: o gvfsd-afc - mounts iPhone/iPod touch volumes o gvfsd-afp - mounts Apple Filing Protocol volumes o gvfsd-afp-browse - browses Apple Filing Protocol volumes o gvfsd-archive - mounts archive files in various formats o gvfsd-burn - provides a location for burning CDs o gvfsd-cdda - mounts audio CDs o gvfsd-computer - provides computer:// o gvfsd-dav - mounts DAV filesystems o gvfsd-dnssd - browses dnssd o gvfsd-ftp - mounts over FTP o gvfsd-http - mounts over HTTP o gvfsd-localtest - a test backend o gvfsd-network - provides network:// o gvfsd-obexftp - mounts over obexftp o gvfsd-recent - provides recent:// o gvfsd-sftp - mounts over sftp o gvfsd-smb - mounts Windows Shares Filesystem volumes o gvfsd-smb-browse - browses Windows Shares Filesystem volumes o gvfsd-trash - provides trash:// ENVIRONMENT
GIO_USE_VFS If set, specifies the GIO vfs implementation to use. Possible values include 'local' and 'gvfs'. GIO_USE_VOLUME_MONITOR If set, specifies the GIO volume monitor implementation to use. Possible values include 'unix', 'GProxyVolumeMonitorUDisks2', as well as other native volume monitors that are described in the key files in $XDG_DATA_DIRS/gvfs/remote-volume-monitors. FILES
$XDG_DATA_DIRS/gvfs/mounts This directory contains key files describing mount daemons. $XDG_DATA_DIRS/gvfs/remote-volume-monitors This directory contains key files describing remote volume monitors. SEE ALSO
