I know the following problem is probably due to my lack of Linux knowledge but here it goes:
Eclipse on Linux doesn't seem to have the ability to edit files directly from a Samba share or server. When I try to link my workspace to files on a samba service in my local network I get promted with a nautilus window witch doesn't show my mounted shares.
Direct path input also results in Eclipse telling me the path is not accessible. On Mac and Windows Eclipse DOES support this feature and this is something many developers really need to have.
My idea is to support smb protocol in Eclipse many other IDE's do have this feature working OOTB but Eclipse being my favorite I'd like to see this feature happen.
