If you are trying to mount a remote ssh folder using sshfs and you are getting this error:

fuse failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission Denied

This is happening because the current user does not belong to the group fuse, go ahead and do so by (have to be root or a sudoer to run it):

adduser your_user_name fuse 

Don’t forget to logout and log back again to have it working.
