Hi, Marek Digged a bit more into this issue and noticed that you are right, since fuse=2.9.3-5 /etc/fuse.conf is world readable, no need to add users to fuse group, which was indeed dropped in that version. Just that all my systems were set before and have $ ls -la /etc/fuse.conf -rw-r----- 1 root fuse 279 jul 2 2012 /etc/fuse.conf as owner/group/permissions. Also, current README.Debian.gz info is from 2012, before that removal.

AFAIK allow_root is useful when a graphical > display manager is used. and will clarify a bit more this part. Thanks for your contribution to Debian. Regards, -- Agustin
