linux default iconProxy filesystem for FUSE Publisher's description

Proxy filesystem for FUSE is an implementation of a filesystem that resolves symlinks and displays them as real folders.

Proxy filesystem for FUSE is an implementation of a filesystem that resolves symlinks and displays them as real folders as well as a few more things.

For example it is possible to point a folder or a single file at a file in the users home directory. Also it is possible to hide files / directories from the folder listing.

Configuration is done through a .proxyfs file in a directory.


The configuration is stored in a file named .proxyfs. The format is standard .ini format, that is section headers in [] following keys / values for the section. The section can be either [Directory], meaning the properties are applied to the current directory or [File/] meaning the properties are applied to the file .

Available properties are:


- This links the folder or the file to the string specified. You can use the ~ character in the string to link to the current users home directory.


- This hides the current folder or file if set to 1.

There will be more options in later versions (if time permits.


First you need to install wxWidgets (currently you have to use non-Unicode, but I'm working on this). I've configured, compiled and installed 2.6.4 like this:

host:~/wxWidgets# ./configure --disable-unicode --with-zlib --disable-gui --prefix=/usr && make && make install

You also will need FUSE. I've used the standard Gentoo FUSE ebuild for this.

To build the source code use this:

host:~/proxyfs# ./build.sh

If everything went right you can now mount the filesystem:

host:~/proxyfs# ./proxyfs /mnt/proxyfs /proxyfsroot
host:~/proxyfs# ls -lah /mnt/proxyfs
total 8.0K
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K 2007-08-27 01:54 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4.0K 2007-08-27 01:54 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2007-08-27 01:54 hello_world
