What's up with the state of NFS sharing on Linux desktops? I setup an NFS export on a local server and verified that I can mount it locally with `sudo mount -t nfs ...`

But when I open the Gnome Files application and try to add a Network location with `nfs://` it will either say "Mount doesn't exist" or "No permissions".

Any suggestions for local filesharing management? Should I use SMB? I just want my laptop to automatically mount a network share on login so I can play some music. :)

gnome-user-share seems like a good option - using Avahi to broadcast shares to other systems on the network is neat.

But I'm not seeing an easy way to set that up for a headless server in my quick 2 min of googling.
