encfs over sshfs on Linux Mint 10

With standard config you get:
fusermount: bad mount point /folder/name: Permission denied

Uncomment user_allow_other from /etc/fuse.conf, and add user to fuse(get read access to /etc/fuse.conf):

sudo nano /etc/fuse.conf
sudo adduser your_username fuse

Log out, and log back in. Check that you’ve got added to fuse:

id | grep fuse


sshfs -oallow_other host:/folder/to/mount /mountpoint
encfs /folder/to/encrypted /mountpoint/decrypted
