EDIT: Problem solved, see this thread :
While following this tutorial on a reasonably fresh 7.10 system, i received the following error during the initial creation of an encrypted directory :
I assume the device, in this instance, is /dev/fuse ; however...
fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first
fuse failed. Common problems:
- fuse kernel module not installed (modprobe fuse)
- invalid options -- see usage message
Modprobe should create this device, unfortunately...
$ ls -l /dev/fuse
ls: /dev/fuse: No such file or directory
Both fuse-utils and libfuse2 are installed :
$ sudo modprobe fuse
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
FATAL: Error running install command for fuse
In case the kernel version is relevant :
$ dpkg -l | grep fuse
ii fuse-utils 2.7.0-1ubuntu5 Filesystem in USErspace (utilities)
ii libfuse2 2.7.0-1ubuntu5 Filesystem in USErspace library
I'm more than happy to accept any and all ideas on what the problem might be.
