I just talked my girlfriend into wiping Windows 8 on her laptop and replacing it with Linux Mint 14 64 bit (FTW!). Everything installed without a hitch and her laptop seems to run a lot more smoothly now. However, I'm having an issue that my NFS shares from my Arch Linux NFS4 server are not showing up in the "Network" item in the Natuilus file browser. I installed "nfs-common" with apt-get, and I'm able to mount the shares using "mount". In fact, I can even autocomplete the shares by typing "mount servername:<TAB>". I was somewhat surprised that Nautilus wasn't discovering my NFS4 shares. Is there something else that I need to install or configure in order for my NFS shares to be detected by Nautilus? It would be nice to be able to share media and files through NFS without having to use the command line. I vaguely remember older versions of Debian/GNOME having this functionality.
Am I missing something? It seems strange the windows SMB shares are showing up but NFS shares are not. Do I need to add her user to a group in order to discover / mount NFS shares or something?
