As root, try

modprobe fuse

This should create /dev/fuse. If it does not work for you, post the
error message (if any) and the output of "uname -a".

If it does work then you can add "fuse" (without the quotes, on its own
line) to /etc/modules to have the module loaded automatically at every
boot.


Also, don't forget to add yourself to the 'fuse' group to be able to
actually use /dev/fuse.  You can do that with 'adduser <username>
fuse'.
