Abiword file dialogs are not network ( share ) aware

abiword (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: abiword

Open Abiword
Click File, Open..

the "Places" list on the left side, does not list any mounted shares...

this is the same for the save dialog and "Insert Picter" dialog
most probably others also.

strange thing is I checked on my fedora box, and abiword dialogs on fedora ARE
netword aware.

This bug causes great confusion to my staff, because it does not behave the same as other software.

In order to show the network shares, it must be able to open over the network (that is, use GnomeVFS). The next version of AbiWord (2.6) will use LibGSF which allows use of GnomeVFS transparently on systems where it is available, so when 2.6 is released and packaged, this bug will be fixed.

Thank you for bug report. As stated above, we just have to be patient...

(Explicit use of gnomevfs was disabled in my new 2.6 packages to allow the use of the GVFS FUSE fallback, which has a much cleaner, more efficient user experience.)

He meant that AbiWord use libgsf which just abstract everything and make
it someone else problem. gsf actually use gnome-vfs, not sure it has
been ported to gio.
