Ubuntu – Updates to fuse.conf are not available


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



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?

Best Answer

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.


I mean Just remove the Hash(#).
