For Ubuntu Desktop Users especially with Unity GUI.

1. Click the Home Folder then click the Browse Network, then from there, click the desire user/network computer you want to access and mount a certain shared drive/folder.
2. From there you can mount it by clicking certain shared drive/folder. After that, you can access it via Terminal.
You can found shared mount drives/folders : /home/user/.gvfs/shareddrivefolder (As for an example).
Open the Terminal, then drag the mounted drive/folder shown on the illustration.
(Used hold left-click then drag into the Terminal.)
Then add the following command to enter the mount shared drive/folder, cd at the begging of the path location of the mount shared drive/folder. As shown on above.
3. You can also browse it via Browse Folder of Ubuntu, just select the path location then right-click then chose Copy. As shown on illustration.
4. Press Alt-F2, then from there, paste the copied path location of the mount shared drive/folder. (Press Ctrl-V to paste). It does the same thing when you browse in the shared folders, just for additional information. XD
