I need to install fuse on Ubuntu 22.04. I've tried installing via snap install fuse but that didn't work, so what is the safest way to install fuse on Ubuntu 22.04? Thanks!

More From » fuse


fuse is present in the Ubuntu repositories, and therefore can be safely installed.

However, it conflicts with a newer version of fuse, fuse3, which is by default installed. If you choose to use fuse rather than fuse3, you will loose some functionality that depends on fuse3.

Installing fuse indeed will cause the removal of

fuse3 gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons-ng gvfs-fuse ntfs-3g
xdg-desktop-portal xdg-desktop-portal-gnome

In addition, the metapackages ubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-desktop-minimal will be removed.

fuse is in the software repository. Installation therefore is safe:

sudo apt install fuse

but you have to accept the consequences on functionality of the default desktop.
