Moving from WindowS to Linux envolves some changes in usual behavior.
One of these is the way I was used to access files on Windw$ (Samba) shares.
On Window$ I was used to browse the shared directory, find the file I wanted to edit (for example \\server\share\file.xls), double click on it and edit directly the shared file.
On Linux, now, I can browse che Window$ shares with Konqueror then double clicking the file in the example given the Openoffice splash appears for a while and then noting more happens. In some cases, if the file can be opened directly by Konqueror, I can access the file (usually not for rìediting), this is the case of PDF files, for example.
I think that if Konqueror does not handle the file type directly i passess the file name (nd path) to the associated application, but this does not work on Samba shares. I mean: oocalc smb://server/share/file.xls
Actually I copy temporarily the file on the local disk, then edit it and then copy the modified file back in its original position.
As you can understand this is a three steps procedure in place of the monolithic action performed in Window$ and very often it's easy to forget the third step so resulting in an unupdeted file...
Is there a more straightforward way to do this in Linux?
