#88 Problem when working on a WebDAV Share / GVFS


It's possible to work with gedit on a webdav share, but as soon I call "Tools -> Latex to PDF", the following error occurs:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins/GeditLaTeXPlugin/src/base/decorators.py", line 223, in <lambda>
gtk_action.connect("activate", lambda gtk_action, action: action.activate(self._window_context), action)
File "/usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins/GeditLaTeXPlugin/src/tools/__init__.py", line 132, in activate
self._runner.run(context.active_editor.file, self._tool, tool_view)
File "/usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins/GeditLaTeXPlugin/src/tools/__init__.py", line 170, in run
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '//user@wxt.h35.serverkompetenz.net/University'

Isn't it possible to use a GVFS with gedit-latex?

    It might be possible to enable this use case with gvfs-fuse. I know that when I double click a gvfs mounted movie file with mplayer, it will transparently remap the sftp:// url to a simple path under ~/.gvfs/sftp on xyz.local/. I guess the way the plugin forms the path is too simplistic.

    Thanks for posting! I might be able to fix the tool error but in the end LaTeX itself has to see your files and I'm pretty sure that it won't access any WebDAV shares. So you're right, the only solution is to use some mounting technique like FUSE. Please allow me give this a low priority...
