SSHfs doesn't work work right with gnome when UIDS are different

dmbtech's picture

Hello, I have recently been able to get sshfs working, and its been working fine on shells and everything, but when using gnome, with nautilus and whatever, it won't work. It doesn't work I believe because the UIDs are diferent on the local computer as they are on the host computer. How does one fix this so they can use the mounted system in gnome with complete write/read access?

Also, gnomelib programs don't work because df -h doesn't work with sshfs, so therefore it refuses to copy anything to the remote system.
