I'm trying to sort out file sharing on my 16.04 PC and have been advised to use sshfs.

From the wiki I'm trying to follow the instructions but not getting very far. I've installed sshfs and checked it is there but the 2nd instruction says to add myself to the fuse group using "sudo gpasswd -a $USER fuse" However when I type that I get "gpasswd: group'fuse' does not exist in /etc/group"

As you can probably guess I am clueless when it comes to terminal and to be honest most things Ubuntu.

The wiki I am following is https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSHFS

  • Jakuje, I see we both edited my question at the same time getting rid of the auto corrects I didn't notice. Can you offer any advise please? I'm lost. – Jon Homer Feb 21 '17 at 9:36
