Hello, colleagues!

Does anyone know how to create .desktop file with smb:// URI so it will 
be possible to open Samba share via file manager like Thunar or Nautilus?

I've created .desktop file like:

[Desktop Entry]
GenericName=Link to CIFS disk
Comment=Link to Samba share

And file managers saying "Incorrect .desktop file smb://..." despite the 
fact that copypasting link "smb://10.x.x.x/" into address field allows 
me to query the resource.

With best regards, Igor Chudov.
