Here is a script for setting up an NFS server that works within kodi for OSMC, for both kodi 18 & 19; I’ve also created created an uninstall script. This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of bmillham who is a member of the OSMC team.
The easiest way is to map some shortcuts to some keys for example f11 & f12, for example (will need to use the command line):
cd /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tomdoyle87/osmc-nfs-server-python3/master/Kodi-nfs-server-setup.py wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tomdoyle87/osmc-nfs-server-python3/master/Kodi-uninstall-nfs-server.py
Then add the following to keyboard.xml or remote.xml (in the global section):
If you need any further assistance with setting up, please comment below. Also I will gladly receive any thoughts or feedback.
Currently only works with OSMC, but shouldn’t require many changes to work on other linux based kodi platforms; glad to help anybody looking to do this, again please comment below.
