GVFS stands for GNOME Virtual File System.
Under Manjaro, if You want create a desktop link refering to a gvfs/samba/smb location, this can be tricky when done with copy & paste with the mouse and modifier keys (alt, shift, ctrl) (copy, move, create link).
Personally, for me the easiest and most robust way to accomplish the goal is to use "thunar" file manager, and its right-click-on-file function "Send To", "Desktop (Create Link)". This way a valid reference is created, in the form e.g.:
If problems arise,
",user=myuserid" before "/myfilepath"
"ln -s targetpath name"
a link can be recreated.
To analyze if the links are feasible, try "ls -al" in the directory where the links are stored. if the links are not feasble, the color of the "ls" entry will indicate this (e.g. red font, flashing).
