NAME
       gvfs - GIO virtual file system

DESCRIPTION
       GIO provides a VFS API to GLib applications. It includes a 'local'
       implementation using POSIX. gvfs provides implementations that go
       beyond that and allow to access files and storage using many protocols,
       such as ftp, http, sftp, dav, obexftp, etc. It also provides support
       for trash folders, for cd burning and for monitoring interesting
       devices and volumes on the computer.

       Applications use gvfs indirectly, by means of GIO loading the gvfs
       module that implements the GIO extension points. The gvfs support for
       volume monitoring is included in a separate loadable module.

       The actual gvfs implementation is distributed over a number of
       processes. None of these are expected to be started from the
       commandline, except for debugging purposes.

       Main processes:

       ·   gvfsd - the main gvfs daemon

       ·   gvfs-fuse-daemon - mounts gvfs as a fuse filesystem

       ·   gvfsd-metadata - writes gvfs metadata

       Volume monitors:

       ·   gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor - a udisks-based volume monitor

       ·   gvfs-afc-volume-monitor - a volume monitor for Apple iPhone/iPod
	   Touch devices

       Mount backends:

       ·   gvfsd-afc - mounts iPhone/iPod touch volumes

       ·   gvfsd-afp - mounts Apple Filing Protocol volumes

       ·   gvfsd-afp-browse - browses Apple Filing Protocol volumes

       ·   gvfsd-archive - mounts archive files in various formats

       ·   gvfsd-burn - provides a location for burning CDs

       ·   gvfsd-cdda - mounts audio CDs

       ·   gvfsd-computer - provides computer://

       ·   gvfsd-dav - mounts DAV filesystems

       ·   gvfsd-dnssd - browses dnssd

       ·   gvfsd-ftp - mounts over FTP

       ·   gvfsd-http - mounts over HTTP

       ·   gvfsd-localtest - a test backend

       ·   gvfsd-network - provides network://

       ·   gvfsd-obexftp - mounts over obexftp

       ·   gvfsd-recent - provides recent://

       ·   gvfsd-sftp - mounts over sftp

       ·   gvfsd-smb - mounts Windows Shares Filesystem volumes

       ·   gvfsd-smb-browse - browses Windows Shares Filesystem volumes

       ·   gvfsd-trash - provides trash://
