Cannot Mount OneDrive - Fusermount Failed To Access Mountpoint

I have installed rclone and created the remote onedrive, having logged into my OneDrive account and auto configured successfully.

My problem comes with mounting OneDrive after leaving the config. I created the directory OneDrive in my home folder and typed:
rclone --vfs-cache-mode writes mount onedrive: ~/OneDrive
and also tried:
rclone --vfs-cache-mode full mount onedrive: ~/OneDrive
but each time I get the response:
2019/09/19 17:56:30 mount helper error: fusermount: failed to access mountpoint /home/hgchi/OneDrive: Permission denied
2019/09/19 17:56:30 Fatal error: failed to mount FUSE fs: fusermount: exit status 1

What to do?

What does:

ls -al /home/hgchi/OneDrive


What does 'id' show?

Shows the contents of my OneDrive, but I can't access them

Can you share the output of the commands as I can't see your screen :slight_smile:

total 215237
-rw-r--r-- 1 hgchi fof_subhalo_tab_025.0.hdf5
-rw-r--r-- 2 hgchi fof_subhalo_tab_025.1.hdf5

and so on

You can see contents but it's not mounted?

The error means you don't have permission to the folder you are trying to mount to.

So I want to see the id you are using and the folder permissions:

[felix@gemini ~]$ id
uid=1000(felix) gid=1000(felix) groups=1000(felix),10(wheel),39(video),998(render),1001(plex)
[felix@gemini ~]$ ls -al | grep Onedrive
drwxrwxrwx   2 felix felix  4096 Sep 19 13:57 Onedrive
[felix@gemini ~]$
