FUSE works but fuse group does not exist?
I recently installed FUSE so I could use mtpfs. It didn't compile immediately, the install failing because it wasn't enabled in the kernel. So I went into the kernel, changed Filesystem in Userspace support under the File systems category from < > to <M>, did modprobe fuse, and then installed mtpfs (which installed fuse as a dependency, via Gentoo's Portage). Everything seems to work fine, I even added fuse to my default runlevel. But there is no fuse group, so I can only run fuse as root currently. I have heard I could probably change file permissions to get it to work, but I really don't want to do this. I can't quite figure out why no fuse group was created. Is it acceptable to just make a group named fuse and add people to it, or does the fuse group have special properties? I just can't figure out why it wasn't created, as everyone else seems to just install fuse and then have a fuse group. I've tried rebooting (with fuse in the default runlevel), but there is still, according to cat /etc/group, no fuse group (I tried usermod -aG fuse violagirl32) anyway, to try it, but indeed, it does not exist. Any suggestions?
