my name's Lars and I'm attempting to create a filesystem which changes a
path to account for certain requirements (a type of wayback filesystem
for the documents at our company).
Can a user application, when its requests pass through FUSE (ie. when
browsing a mounted FUSE-based filesystem), determine the path of a file
Let's say a user opens Nautilus to display the content of a directory.
My filesystem sort of redirects to display the content of another
directory. Based on the filenames displayed, or other information
obtained via readdir or similar calls to fuse, can Nautilus determine
the real directory the files are in? How?
I want to avoid redirecting a directory which already is the redirected
one. Actually a user shouldn't get to know the paths after redirection
but assume its the path he clicked or typed.
Thank you for your time!
