Fuse for Mac OS not supported on Mac OS 10.15 Catalina beta 1

Curious if anyone else has tried the desktop app with Mac OS Catalina yet and have run into incompatibility issues with Fuse? I’m running the latest Cryptomator version and the app itself seems to work ok but I cannot unlock vault due to issues with the Fuse file system application.

I have Fuse 3.9.1 installed with no luck. I can’t install the latest version 3.9.2 because Mac OS says it’s also incompatible.

Any workarounds known at this time?

Will have to wait until osxfuse is compatible with Catalina. See:

I also just installed the beta and tried uninstalling fuse. Now I get persistent error windows popping up still telling me that the installed version of FUSE is incompatible.
At the same time, the computer is running like **** (not good)

Oh, now thinking about this again, a workaround could be to use WebDAV instead of FUSE. Go to the settings inside Cryptomator and set the “Preferred Volume Type” to WebDAV.

As an update here, @tobihagemann, changing the preferred type to WebDAV didn’t work for me. I also have updated to FUSE 3.10 which supposedly fixed these issues according to their GitHub issue, but I still get a failed unlocked on all of my vaults.

My bad, I did some more testing. I usually have my vaults in synced Google Drive (via File Stream), which is what I was using. A Vault created in my synced iCloud or a local folder opened fine.

I was getting errors with something about mount point not found in fstab. Would that be a result of my choosing a custom mount point for Google Drive?

Edit: reset my mount point, still failing

That’s good news. I just saw the 3.10 update for Fuse this afternoon and was going to give it a shot then saw your original post and depression set in haha. Glad to hear it seems to be up via iCloud for now. Thanks for the posts!!

FUSE is working for me, but somehow vaults became read-only. May be some new attributes added in this version, or permission problem — Catalina is strictly paranoid to give access for anything. I am on public beta 3.

Here is the log with aforementioned operation:

Another exception on read. Vault was on iCloud, i moved it on the local disk.

Does it mean that some files are corrupted now?
