Didn't work for me unfortunately. Here's what I did:

1) added your ppa
2) did apt-get update and installed ltspfs here's the entry from

status installed ltspfs 0.5.0~bzr20080109-3ubuntu4~ppa1

-popped in a usb drive, drive shows up on all domain users desktops
rather than just the domain user whose
drive it is.
-Restarted client: same deal.
- Restarted server and client: same deal

Here's what it looks like:

/media/flyboy$ ls -al
ls: cannot access TRAVELDRIVE: Permission denied
total 12

drwxr-x---  4 root domain users 4096 Feb  8 15:30 .
drwxr-xr-x 40 root root         4096 Feb  8 13:57 ..
d?????????  ? ?    ?               ?            ? TRAVELDRIVE

If I try to do:

# chown flyboy.root /media/flyboy/TRAVELDRIVE
chown: cannot access `/media/flyboy/TRAVELDRIVE': Permission denied

Other things that might matter

 cat /etc/udev/rules.d/45-fuse.rules
KERNEL="fuse", NAME="%k", MODE="0666",OWNER="root" GROUP="fuse"

ls -la /bin/fusermount
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root fuse 22532 2010-01-26 16:29 /bin/fusermount

What do you think?

Thanks for your help
