This is a footnote to yesterday's post about using fuse based encrypted filesystems on linux. Once you have everything setup and try to mount an encrypted folder, you might get the following error:

EncFS Password:

fuse: failed to exec fusermount: Permission denied
fuse failed.  Common problems:
- fuse kernel module not installed (modprobe fuse)
- invalid options -- see usage message
This can be easily fixed by typing: chmod +x /usr/bin/fusermount
