Functionality retained with beta4




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





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
