Why is the fish protocol not working anymore?

Until now, I could enter: fish://nemo@[Ip-of-my-Jolla]:/home/nemo in a Linux Filemanager

Now it seems that only sshfs works: sshfs nemo@[Ip-of-my-Jolla]:/home/nemo /[some folder on the PC to mount]

Works for me too. (Kubuntu 14.10). You could also try sftp, which to me seems better suited for the task. Thus, sftp://nemo@

the fish protocol is actually a hack that you can use for hosts that don't support sftp (usually embedded systems), but Sailfish uses openssh which has good sftp support, so you should rather use that (you'll even get better performance).

so just use sftp://nemo@[ip of your phone] instead of fish://, and you should be good to go. :-)

(that said, fish works for me.)
