I haven't used "fusesmb", but based on my experience with sshfs, which
uses the "fuse" module to make filesystems accessible over ssh, If you
decide to try the fuse-based approach, you will (probably) need to do at
least three things:

1)   sudo modprobe fuse

2)   sudo adduser yourusernamehere fuse

3)   echo "fuse" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules  # ( don't forget the "-a"
for "append" ! )

# Or add the word fuse on a line
at the end of /etc/modules with your favourite text editor, and save the

The addition to /etc/modules is to ensure that the module loads on boot.

If I am right, then logging out and in again after the first two commands
should make it work. 

As I said, i haven't used the tool you are talking about, so I am guessing
a bit based on another use of "fuse" ( sshfs). The package may set up some
of this automatically. I have no windows boxes here and therefore have no
need for smb/cifs so... 

Often the home page for these tools has documentation :


- you might also find documentation in /usr/share/doc , and of course it
is always worth typing
