Accessing GmailFS mount as a nonroot user
I am running Fedora Core 4 and have set up GmailFS on my computer to create a filesystem based on my gmail account. I have followed all of the directions as closely as possible, and I can successfully mount/view my directory as root.
As soon as I try and view the directory as a normal user however, it doesn't even treat it as a directory. When it is successfully mounted and viewable as root, a dir by a normal user shows:
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? GmailFS
for my mount. The mount command shows it as mounted:
/dev/fuse on /mnt/GmailFS type fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev)
I have checked all the files I can think of, fusermount, mount.gmailfs, gmailfs.py and the device /dev/fuse and all have world read and/or execute permissions set as appropriate. I have been unable to find any other reference to this problem.
