In general, I would like to run local programs on remote files provided to me via a distributed file system (e.g. samba, NFS or whichever you recommend), and I want to access the remote files in a way similar to accessing local files: something similar to "location transparency".
I was amazed by my file manager pcmanfm which can present remote files like local files, and allows me to run some local programs on them by right clicking in the same way of running the programs on local files.
I want to do the same in CLI shell.
For example, I am trying to copy a file to a remote directory
sharesmb shared via a remote samba daemon.
I can do it in my file manager
pcmanfm, with address
smb://olive.local/sharesmb on olive.local.
I would like to do the same in shell, but the link doesn't work. Could you tell me how to do that in shell?
$ cp 153-158.pdf smb://olive.local/sharesmb on olive.local cp: target 'olive.local' is not a directory $ cp 153-158.pdf smb://olive.local/'sharesmb on olive.local' cp: cannot create regular file 'smb://olive.local/sharesmb on olive.local': No such file or directory
