Fusermount is a command-line tool used in Linux systems to mount and unmount user space file systems. It provides an interface to the FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) kernel module, allowing users to mount file systems implemented in user space. The fusermount tool is typically used by non-privileged users to mount file systems for which they have permission. By using FUSE, file systems can be developed and implemented without requiring root privileges. Fusermount provides options to specify the mount point, define file system type, set mount options, and control the behavior of the mounted file system. The tool displays comprehensive error messages if any issues occur during the mounting or unmounting process. It allows users to mount various file systems, including remote file systems, network file systems, and encrypted file systems. Fusermount can be helpful in scenarios where a user needs to access files from a different file system without having root access. It offers an efficient and secure way to create and mount user space file systems, providing users with flexibility and control over their file system requirements.
