 !As mentioned earlier, (most) devices are also accessed through the file system. These special device files are usually located in the ''/​dev''​ folder. For example the special file ''/​dev/​hda''​ represents the first IDE disk on a Linux system. ​ !As mentioned earlier, (most) devices are also accessed through the file system.

 +===== Gnome virtual file system ​ =====
 +Some thunar features, like **support for trash**, **removable media** and **remote file systems** only can be used if the [[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​Projects/​gvfs|gvfs]] packages provided by your distribution are installed
 +
 +E.g. For debian and derivates the packages "​gvfs-backends"​ and "​gvfs-fuse"​ are required.
 +
 +Dependent on which gvfs-backends you want to use, further packages will need to be installed.
 +
 +Best check the [[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​Projects/​gvfs/​backends|gvfs-backends documentation]] for details.
 +
 +=== Remote File Systems ​ ===
 +
 +In addition to the local filesystem thunar is able to display content of remote filesystems via different remote protocols.
 +
 +Here some example locations to enter into the location selector. Please check the  [[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​Projects/​gvfs|gvfs documentation]] for a complete list.
 +
 +== Access via Secure file transfer program ==
 +  sftp://​johndoe@myRemoteHost/​home/​johndoe
 +
 +
 +== Access to Windows file systems via Samba ==
 +  smb://​myRemoteHost/​johndoe
 +
 +== Access to Apple file systems via Apple Filing Protocol ==
 +  afp://​myRemoteHost/​johndoe
 +
 +<note tip>If you want to permanently store passphrases of remote filesystem locations, you have to install the [[https://​wiki.gnome.org/​action/​show/​Projects/​GnomeKeyring?​action=show&​redirect=GnomeKeyring|GNOME Keyring]] package provided by your linux distribution.</​note>​
