Installing Fusera

One Step Installation

This shell command downloads an install script and executes it.

The install script downloads the fusera and sracp binaries and installs them under /usr/local/bin, one of the most common places for executables to live on Linux.

It is recommended to use fusera on Ubuntu, but it can be run on most other forms of Linux. Some distro's of Linux will require their appropriate fuse utilities to be installed.

Please note that this script will attempt to get super user privileges in order to do some of the necessary commands to install fusera. If it cannot get these privileges due to how your machine is set up, please try to log in as the super user on the machine before running the script. This can be done by running the sudo su command. After the script finishes, it is recommended to immediately exit the super user prompt by running the exit command. Then fusera should be installed on your machine, which can be validated by running fusera version.

If you're paranoid about running a script from the internet that needs super user permissions, feel free to use the link to read the install script yourself and pick it apart manually line by line to install fusera or move on to the DIY section of this article.

"I'll Do It Myself, Thank You"

If you do not like running other people's shell scripts, releases of Fusera and Sracp can be found at https://github.com/mitre/fusera/releases

Make sure to grab the latest release, which is signified on the left sidebar with a green badge. Also note that changing the binary to be executable will probably be necessary:

chmod +x fusera
chmod +x sracp

It is advisable to move this file somewhere in your PATH.

$ go get github.com/mitre/fusera/cmd/fusera
$ go install github.com/mitre/fusera/cmd/fusera
$ go get github.com/mitre/fusera/cmd/sracp
$ go install github.com/mitre/fusera/cmd/sracp
You can’t perform that action at this time.
