I just installed the Linux .deb file for Ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04. I have an Ubuntu 64-bit 12.04 system.

All of the other tools work (SyncCenter, Storage Explorer) except the SMEstorage Client.

The server is set to: smestorage.com and I am confident I have the correct username/password. 

I have set the "current folder" to /home/steve/Documents

When I click the "Mount" button, I receive the following error:

"fuse: mountpoint is not empty

fuse: if you are sure this is safe, use the 'nonempty' mount option

could not mount fuse filesystem!"

I have since edited my fuse.conf file to include the line "user_allow_other", but the same error shows up.

Any help is appreciated.

Marking as "Solved"

Duh! The error was telling me what I needed. I had to use an empty folder so I created a new folder, clicked the button to "mount" the new folder I created and all is well.

GREAT job on the Linux version SME Team!

This is not solved, I want to mount it on a non empty folder because I am sharing the folder between 2 systems and one of them is not using the SME client. trying with smemount program by command line I saw there is an option --ao for other users and --ct for cache time, why not add other option --ne for non empty folder when calling internally to fuse program, it will add the option "-o nonempty" to the line calling fuse allowing me to mount in that point.

My only doubt is that I don know what will happen when the local folder and the old folder try to mix.

We could add option "Mount to non empty folder" to the SME Linux Client, but it seems pointless. If we mount in this way If the folder is not empty that is being mounted you will still only see SME folders and files. It will be impossible to access folders and files that have been in folder before the mount (it would only be possible after unmount).

I see the problem, now I understand why always it has to be in an empty folder. 

So I was thinking and my real problem is that what I want is to have something in local and SME's Client synchronizes it with what I have in each server likes dropbox client, so you can mark this as solved but should be a great idea to create another SME client to syncronize a local folder for each provider (one folder per provider) similar to what dropbox, drive and skydrive have. Because now with the client you provide you have to mount always at the start with Linux (in Windows it does automatically and I can program it to the start on Linux) but the point is that I dont have always an internet connection and in that way I need always conecttion to your server to see the files and need something always in local to work, that's why I am suggestion a new kind of client. What you have now is fine but looks like is think only for company purposes and not for individual users.

Anyway thanks for your help.

Why can't you use the SME Linux Sync App to achieve this ? (rather than the mounted drive)

I can, but I have to force it to run manually or create an script specifically to run the application every few time. Maybe I didnt see it, there is any option to keep the SME Sync running always in background and check the changes in files every few seconds?
