I am trying to unmount google-drive-ocamlfuse. I entered the following command:

fusermount -u ~/google-drive

it returns:

fusermount: entry for /home/<user_name>/google-drive not found in /etc/mtab

What is wrong and how to fix it?

In general how can I uninstall ocamlfuse

    Is it mounted in that location? – user692175 Nov 23 '17 at 16:28
  • @MichaelBay, yes it was, I mounted it using command: google-drive-ocamlfuse ~/google-drive. Whole my ubuntu is not very responsive now. – user1700890 Nov 23 '17 at 18:06
  • @MichaelBay, thank you for clarifying. How can I unmount it or remove it completely? – user1700890 Nov 23 '17 at 18:42
  • Try giving it the full path to where google-drive is actually mounted. – user692175 Nov 23 '17 at 18:45
  • @MichaelBay full path is /home/<user_name>/google-drive and when I issue command with this path, I get back the same error – user1700890 Nov 23 '17 at 19:05

Because you need mount folder first (in /home/user_name/google-drive):

# mount
google-drive-ocamlfuse ~/google-drive

An them umount:

# umount
fusermount -u ~/google-drive

PD: I recommend changing the name of the folder without symbols. Maybe "gdrive" or another similar


And it's even better to use a bash script described in the post Share Google Drive in Samba
