'k, so I've got two machines.

One is running Ubuntu 7.10 (gutsy gibbon). The other was running gutsy, but now is running Ubuntu 8.04 beta (hardy heron).

On both machines I mount an NFS share. My mountpoint is at /mnt/tardis-media on both of them. My fstab line is the same on both of them.

Here's the difference. When I mount the share on one machine, the folder displays on the desktop and in the "places" view of the Gnome explorer.

When I mount the share on the second machine, it doesn't. Didn't on gutsy, doesn't on a completely reinstalled hardy. I'm baffled.

I would really like the share to be easier to get to (rather than navigating to /mnt/tardis-media.

Any ideas?

Two possibles:

You may need to add /mnt to your PATH

Or use a link

ln -s shortname /mnt/tardis-media

I found some notes online.

I've got to check the machine, but on the machine that's displaying the icon, it may be mounted in /media/tardis-media instead of /mnt/tardis-media.

When I asked my nautilus-guy, he wanted to know if we're sure that the machine which works is actually using /mnt and not /media, since nautilus shows /media mounts, and not /mnt mounts.

Could that be it?

As I mentioned to howierd, it's distinctly possible that I wasn't reading closely enough, and I'm going to try that.

BTW, Sandra's active journal is at galtine1. The one that ends in "L" is abandoned.

Moving it to /media gave me exactly what I wanted. Only glitch is it isn't showing that nifty little nfs-mount icon, but I can live with that.
