Re: browse NFS shares from fresh ubuntu install?
Sadly, there is no built-in graphical NFS browser for Ubuntu.
You can install package nfs-common and execute this command in a terminal
This will give you a list of shares.
showmount -e <server address>
You can then proceed to mount the desired share manually of through an fstab entry.
Dolphin, the KDE file manager, will let you browse NFS shares provided you know the server address. Hit Ctrl-L and type
sudo mount -t nfs <server>:/<share> <mount point>
It's a bit clumsy though, it treats an NFS share like an FTP site. A filesystem mount is much more seamless, it's behaves just like a local directory.
