PCManFM 1.2.0 / LXDE on ArchLinux 3.13.5-1 i686 GNU/Linux + 3.13.6-1 x86_64 + 3.8.13.18-2 armv7l.
libfm 1.2.0-3

An address written in the PCManFMs address bar starting with 'ssh://user@servername/' was autocorrected to 'sftp://user@servername/' recently.
This feature is suddenly gone, instead you will now get an error message: 'The given location is not supported' (back translated from german, does not make much sense and is not really helpful).

  • Translating ssh:// to sftp:// is correct because in fact SSH protocol is a terminal protocol but file protocol over it is called SFTP and that should not affect the possibility to connect. The message 'The given location is not supported' is shown when gvfs does not know how to connect to it. The most probably some gvfs backend isn't loaded. Check your gvfs components, please.
    Thank you very much.
