Re: Support for remote file in location window

Thanks for your responses.

Ritesh is talking about gvfs, you, Jasper, about gtk. Could you
clarify how they work together?

As for the application:

Generally I need this feature when trying to upload something onto a
website using Chromium. Pressing the upload button on the website then
opens the "Open file" window [1]. However, I am not sure which program
provides this window. As for the file manager, I am using Nautilus.

So, is there any way how I can tell the window to accept remote files?

Well, GtkFileChooser can support remote files (there's a flag for it), but
only if the application can understand it. The app is returned either a
filename (which is local-only) or a URI which it has to use Gio to
implement. I don't know what app you're using, but it has to flip the switch
to enable URIs in GtkFileChooser, and then be able to interpret the URI

I am talking about this window:

This would be very useful for uploading remote files to websites in a
browser session.
