I am running 5.0 Juno, and I have a NFS share mounted with settings such that the owner and group can read, write, and execute. On the client machine, the mount command shows the following configuration

192.168.1.x:/mnt/pool0/share on /nfs type nfs (rw,relatime,vers=3,rsize=131072,wsize=131072,namlen=255,hard,nolock,proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,mountaddr=192.168.1.x,mountvers=3,mountport=698,mountproto=udp,local_lock=all,addr=192.168.1.x)

With these settings, tools like touch, cp, and mkdir work as normal in the terminal.

In contrast, when using Files to write files to the share, I get the error

Error opening file “/nfs/Documents/new file”: Operation not permitted

however, after receiving the error, an empty file is created on the share. A second attempt to write the file allows for a full write.

My question is: how do you configure permissions for Files to resolve this error?

  • Is the error shown in a Files dialog? I cannot match it to any error message in the source code. – Jeremy Wootten Jun 6 '19 at 9:24
