Developer / company: The GNOME Project
GnomeVFS is short for GNOME Virtual File System. It provides an abstraction layer for the reading, writing and execution of files. It was originally used by the Nautilus file manager and other GNOME applications before GNOME 2.22.
The file system abstraction used by the Linux kernel is also called the virtual file system (VFS) layer. This is however at a lower level.
In April 2008, the GNOME project has declared GnomeVFS deprecated in favour of GVFS and GIO, requesting that developers not use it in new applications.
The GnomeVFS software seems to be old or discontinued.
Such programs may not work on modern operating systems properly, are no longer available and supported by their original developers, or are simply obsolete for their purpose. Sometimes companies offer limited support through their website.
GnomeVFS works with the following file extensions:
Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
