sshfs – failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied

Problem:

fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied

Solution:

usermod -G fuse <your-username>
reboot

Depending on your setup you may need to prefix the solution commands with sudo although this isn’t specific to any platform and many user su. You may not need to reboot but it could save you some hassle in the long run if the problem still persists.  It’s common sense but just in case you didn’t get it, replace <your-username> with the username you use.
