Problems mounting dropbox remote whereas other commands do work normally

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am facing an error when trying to mount a DROPBOX remote
ERROR WARNING
2023/11/23 12:38:51 Fatal error: failed to mount FUSE fs: cannot get mounts: open /proc/self/mountinfo: permission denied.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

os/version: ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit)

  • os/kernel: 5.15.0-89-generic (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.21.3

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

DROPBOX

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone -v mount DPBXALLRIGHT1: /media/sch/DBPBXLEC --allow-other --vfs-cache-mode full

Please run 'rclone config redacted' and share the full output. If you get command not found, please make sure to update rclone.

welcome to the forum,

Due to the strict confinement of Snap, rclone mount feature is not supported.
If mounting is wanted, either install a precompiled binary or enable the relevant option when installing from source.

Good Evening and Many Thanks for this quick reply,
I had feared that using a snap source could be a problem but had no real idea why and it was already installed when I realised this.
Best Regards
