Functionality retained with beta4

 

https://github.com/gpz500/fuse-ext2/releases/tag/v0.0.9-gpz501

 

Follow applicable directions on page, but suggest you don't automount ext volumes.

 

Confirmed working RW for Monterey with macFUSE 4.20.

 

Determine your ext volume(s) with diskutil list.

 

Make a mount point:

sudo mkdir /Volumes/ext

 

Mount the volume:

sudo /usr/local/bin/fuse-ext2 -o force /dev/diskXsY /Volumes/ext -o allow_other

 

X=disk

Y=slice

 

Softlink to desktop:

sudo ln -s /Volumes/ext /Users/yourusername/Desktop/ext

 

Make sure finder is configured to show mounted volumes on desktop.

 

You can mount an ext volume from terminal or make an automator app that works with a double click from the desktop.

 

A simple example for automator to mount ext volume without desktop softlink: 

do shell script "sudo /usr/local/bin/fuse-ext2 -o force /dev/diskXsY /Volumes/ext -o allow_other" with administrator privileges

 

Unmount ext volume from terminal:

sudo umount  /dev/diskXsY
