[ubuntu-uk] affuse: FUSE support is disabled (Ubuntu 7.10)

Hi All

I have been taking a look at "afflib" using Ubuntu 7.10 as part of a digital forensics research project. Part of the package (aimage) allows you to make a copy of a hard drive or volume, including certain metadata from the target device, and later mount the image obtained using another part of the package called "affuse". As the name suggests "affuse" relies on FUSE being installed on the examination machine. That's where I keep hitting problems.

The way it should work is that you mount the image using FUSE and then mount the mounted image as a device (e.g. at /mnt/analysis) so that the filesystem on the image can be navigated as if it were a normally mounted filesystem.

Whenever I run the first set of commands to mount the image using FUSE:

root at gutsy:/home/stu# affuse /home/stu/case_work/testing/aimage/aimage_test-1.aff /mnt/aff

I get this error:

affuse: FUSE support is disabled.

I have searched high and low both on my box and on google, but have been unable to find any hints as to how to enable FUSE support in Ubuntu. (I have fuse-utils installed).

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
