Andy gvfs-mount -l should show up what is mounted

Seek That Thy Might Know


Still doesn't tell me anythig useful tho - with "gvfs-mount -li" you get the "unix device" but nothing that lets you relate back to the mount point, so I still can't tell , for example, where my /dev/sda12 is mounted.

But I've worked out some of it:

gvfs-andydj at yggdrasil:~$ gvfs-info -f  /home/andydj
  filesystem::free: 3711942656
  filesystem::size: 39371034624
  filesystem::type: ext3/ext4

But that *still* doesn't relate the mount point to the device.

Any more ideas anyone?
