This is just a shot note on how to mount a Samba or Windows CIFS share as a normal linux user using the gvfs-mount command in Centos 7 or RedHat 7.
Mounting a mountpoint share using the username user and password
[user@host] gvfs-mount smb://email@example.com/shared-folder
If the command finishes without any errors you can now access your smb mount on the following path
[user@host] ls -l /run/user/1000/gvfs/smb-share\:server\=192.168.0.200\,share\=shared-folder\,user\=username/
1000 corresponds to your users id and can be determined by the id command
uid=1000(username) gid=1000(username) groups=1000(username)
I compared the performance between connecting directly to a Samba share using UNC path and using gvfs-mount and saw that there is a noticeable speed decrease using gvfs-mount.
But if you have old software that does not support UNC path, then gvfs-mount is a good alternative to no access.
