I'd like to create a simple command line script that will copy some files from ~/myfiles to files on a WebDAV-mounted filesystem over a network connection. I can easily click on places and bookmarks, enter the password/username combo and it'll mount from within Nautilus, but I can't find the location of the filesystem anywhere with the mount command so I can't very well do anything non-GUI to manipulate files.

Will I have to find a way to manually mount the share to a mount point, or is there a way to get it to show up in Nautilus and the filesystem at the same time?

Afaik, shares mounted via the 'Connect to Server' tool in Nautilus end up under ~/.gvfs. However, there were some issues navigating webdav shares mounted via this tool, see this bug report.

this is not valid any more in recent ubuntu versions. on 13.10, it's in /run/user/1000/gvfs, where 1000 is the user ID of your user. – andreas-h Mar 5 '14 at 10:03

You want to try FuseDav:

sudo apt-get install fusedav

Then follow these instructions:

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Canadian Luke Dec 7 '12 at 21:11
