    I can't check if fuse is activated

    I'm using lubuntu 14.04. With Lubuntu I want to mount and SSHFS filesytem. I can do it without any problem and works.

    The problem comes when I want to check if FUSE module is activated. The module must be activated.... Otherwise I coudln't mount the SSHFS filesystem. But if I type next command:

    lsmod

    I can't find anything related to fuse

    If I type:

    lsmod | grep fuse

    Then I don't obtain any output. Just a black screen an no message,

    If I type modprobe fuse

    Then I don't obtain any output. Just a black screen an no message,

    Why I Can't check if fuse module is loaded on the kernel?

    What should I do to check it?

    your post is quite confusing: the system cant run without fuse, and is active in the background

    Re: I can't check if fuse is activated

    I can use FUSE. I can use it because I can mount the SSHFS fileSystem without any problem.

    My problem is that altough I can use FUSe when I list modules with lsmod... FUSE is not there. So means FUSE is not loaded... But must be loaded because I can use it.

    It's likely compiled in to the kernel rather than an externally-loadable module: e.g.

    Code:
    ~$ grep -i fuse /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.builtin
    kernel/fs/fuse/fuse.ko

    Re: I can't check if fuse is activated

    Perhaps it is running as a daemon:

    tgalati4@Mint17 ~ $ ps aux | grep fuse
    tgalati4 1741 0.0 0.0 345660 1016 ? Sl Aug22 0:00 /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-fuse /run/user/1000/gvfs -f -o big_writes
    tgalati4 11159 0.0 0.0 11744 924 pts/2 S+ 08:17 0:00 grep --colour=auto fuse
    I presume that gvfsd-fuse stands for gnome virtual file system daemon with FUSE.

    Re: I can't check if fuse is activated

    Yes Sir you presume right.

    GVFS is the virtual filesystem for the GNOME desktop, which allows users easy access to remote data via SFTP, FTP, WebDAV, SMB, and local data via Udevintegration, OBEX, MTP and others.
    From here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GVFS
    NAME

    gvfsd-fuse - Fuse daemon for gvfs

    SYNOPSIS

    gvfsd-fuse PATH

    DESCRIPTION

    gvfsd-fuse maintains a fuse mount to make gvfs backends available to
    POSIX applications. The mount point for the fuse filesystem is provided by the [PATH] argument.
    and here http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...sd-fuse.1.html

    Just a lucky guess. I came across the word insouciant, but I was too lazy to look it up.

    Re: I can't check if fuse is activated

    As steeldriver says seems that FUSE is compiled with the kernel.

    So in Lubuntu 14.04 seems that FUSE is load by default and it's not a module that you have to load.

    Inside the file modules.builtin there is next line_


    kernel/fs/fuse/fuse.ko

    So he must be right.
