I'm trying to unmount from nautilus, the directory created by sshfs, but I get this error:

Unable to unmount dir
umount: /home/user/dir  is not in the fstab (and you are not root)

I'm not getting why is this happening. How can I unmount sshfs without sudo?

Any enlightenment will be appreciated. Thanks in advance,


Open a terminal window, and type

fusermount -u /path/to/mount
