Well, I figured this one out this morning at 3:30 am. It's been bugging
me for several months. It might have been affecting others, so I'll
post it here, where it'll eventually become googleable (?!) by all.
Installing fuse + (any fuse based filesystem) works fine in Sarge, and
mounts happen as one assumes they should. However, the mount points are
unbrowsable by Nautilus: clicking on a fuse-mounted-directory causes the
new browser window to open momentarily, then immediately close, and the
directory then dissapears from Nautilus altogether.
The problem isn't with Nautilus per se, but rather with Sarge's reliance
on the older famd for file update notification.
By default, fuse doesn't allow root to look at a mounted filesystem.
You'll, of course, need to add:
to your /etc/fuse.conf. As well, you'll need to remember to add "-o
allow_root" to your mounts.
And voila! Everything works.
Rumour has it that etch doesn't have this. I know it's been fixed in
Sid. Ubuntu uses the newer inotify, and doesn't rely on famd, so it's
ok, and apparently it's not a problem in Fedora.
Consider it added to the ether.
