That should work, but unlike many Linux users, I dont spend much time on the keyboard.
I have now mounted it properly after a few hours looking at a bunch of information. With my limited knowledge it seemed like there was conflict between Arch, Manjaro, and fstab/mount in general, but perhaps that is because of updates.
I ended up using:
0.0.0.173:/NAS_BRIDGE /home/JimBobBoy/NAS_LINK nfs4 defaults,_netdev 0 0
(ip & user changed for security)
It seems to be working pretty well so far, even though I think I got lucky!
I am intrigued with lazytime but didn’t want to push my luck!
I share the NAS between my Manjaro and Windows 10 boxes, and so far this seems to work. The only issue is Dolphin knowing when to refresh. (Sometimes I change files or folders and I have to manually get the change to show up.)
I also read about putting this under a pre-defined file and using systemd to make it work. It says it will be less dangerous than messing with fstab, but I could not figure it out! A lot of back and forth too, with WHERE the thing should be mounted because of temp/permanent, etc.
The stuff is beyond me, but right this second I have gotten past my desire to have a universal file-picker by way of mounting the NAS in my fstab file.
If any one has an idea how a filepicker could be set as the default, (even though it seems each app can call on their own,) I would welcome that. I think a file-picker should be universally common within the OS flavor, IF A USER WANTS that behavior. While allowing an app to have their own rolled picker if the need is there.
Frankly, I am a bit surprised there is not already an override for this in Manjaro, but I am guessing ti is pretty difficult to get in the middle of all apps calling for a file-open or file-save.
Thanx for the follow-up @omano
