As a regular user I mount my archive files with this:

ARCHIVEF=$(zenity --file-selection --filename=/shared/);
archivemount $ARCHIVEF /media/archivemount/

Unfortunately, sudo is required to umount. That doesn't work well for me. I would like a way to umount without sudo. I can get fstab changes made. I'm just not sure what changes to make there. Or other options are welcome too. Thanks.

I've been able to unmount using $ fusermount -u /media/archivemount (or whatever the mountpoint is).
