I'm attempting to add the following so that I can use my Nexus 4 with Ubuntu. But the change in /etc/fuse.conf doesn't seem to be captured by the system. See below.

system76:~$ sudo tail -1 /etc/fuse.conf; id -a; android-connect

user_allow_other

104(fuse)

fusermount: failed to open /etc/fuse.conf: Permission denied
fusermount: option allow_other only allowed if 'user_allow_other' is set in /etc/fuse.conf

What am I missing?

  • shall we see the complete /etc/fuse.conf ? – rɑːdʒɑ Jun 16 '13 at 3:00
  • # Set the maximum number of FUSE mounts allowed to non-root users. # The default is 1000. # #mount_max = 1000 # Allow non-root users to specify the 'allow_other' or 'allow_root' # mount options. # user_allow_other – user167582 Jun 17 '13 at 1:08

edit your /etc/fuse.conf with following modifications.

# Set the maximum number of FUSE mounts allowed to non-root users.
# The default is 1000.

mount_max = 1000

# Allow non-root users to specify the 'allow_other' or 'allow_root'
# mount options.

user_allow_other

I mean Just remove the Hash(#).

To pickup conf file, you have to add your user to "fuse" group.

sudo addgroup <username> fuse, 

You also have to relogin

sudo pkill -u username
