Add support for Samba shares to Thunar [Xubuntu 11.10]

Thunar is a simple and easy to use file manager and is the default choice for Xfce.
Despite the fact the it incorporates all the main features that one would expect from a modern file manager, Thunar doesn't provide a out of the box solution for accessing remote folders (namely Samba shares).

Running the command below will add support for remote folders:
$ sudo apt-get install gvfs-backends
