The fuse component is used internally by AppImage to decompress and mount
quickly in user sapce the virtual disk from the bundle.

If i'm not too wrong, fuse right is managed by user properties. Your
account must be listed in fuse group from the system. This is how i use
Kate AppImage 32 bits compiled by myself to use on embeded Linux CentOS 6
in my office. Typically, the account is just add to fuse group in
/etc/groups. You must to be un-logged to see the changes take effect.

The Facebook tool must be ported to OAuth2 to automatize the
identification. We will have a student working on this project while this
summer. He will also ports others webservice tools to OAuth2, as Google for

A lots of changes are planed about webservice tools for next 6.0.0. This is
a main goal from my pending tasks since a while : more Qt5 only
implementations, available everywhere (editor, light table, showfoto), no
run-time loading at startup, and a factored API in digiKam core.

I will explain more details later in this room, after to publish the last
5.9.0 release planed in few weeks.
