#StackBounty: #server #nautilus #20.04 #nfs NFS shares accessible from Nautilus, but not from applications

Bounty: 50

I’m having some issues using NFS to access files on a small PC via a home LAN.

It appears to work perfectly when I’m using Nautilus or the command line, but when I try to save an application such as LibreOffice or GIMP, I get a few second delay, then a "Write error". When opening an existing file from the NFS share it tells me "This file is locked for editing by Unknown User".

These applications can open and save files on local drives without problems.

My local PC is using Ubuntu 20.04, and the server says it’s on: "5.3.0-53-generic #47~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP"

My local /etc/fstab entry:

192.168.50.186:/nas/shared /shared nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr,nfsvers=3

On the server my /etc/exports file:

/nas/shared   192.168.50.186/255.255.255.0(rw,insecure,no_subtree_check,async)
