Nautilus (Ubuntu's file manager) and bookmarks

In the very old days, the Ubuntu's file manager's bookmarks were stored directly as invisible file in the home folder ($HOME/.gtk-bookmarks). Since 14.04, they have been hiding two levels deep in $HOME/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks.

And if you wonder where the Nautilus scripts are, they are nowadays at $HOME/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/.

Mount Samba shares (why doesn't Nautilus work?) and making smb mounts permanent

Mount Samba shares
Apparently it is very easy to connectfrom within Nautilus to Windows computers (or rather to computers running smb services). The only thing you have to do is to type smb:/// into the URL bar and the network is browsed for available domains, workgroups and services. However when one tries to open some files (e.g. some image) there often appears the error message that those files cannot be accessed via samba.
