Apart from downloading the packages, all the steps below have to be executed as root.
# If ntfs-3g was already installed :
# On any computer :
unzip -x ntfs-3g_ntfsprogs-2016.2.22AR.3.pkg.zip
pkgadd -d ntfs-3g_ntfsprogs-2016.2.22AR.3.pkg all
# Alternately, on 64-bit computers only :
unzip -x ntfs-3g_ntfsprogs-2016.2.22AR.3.pkg64.zip
pkgadd -d ntfs-3g_ntfsprogs-2016.2.22AR.3.pkg64 all
# If a fuse kernel module was already installed :
# Anyway :
unzip -x fuse-kernel-1.2AR.7.pkg.zip
pkgadd -d fuse-kernel-1.2AR.7.pkg all
# The commands below only for the first installation
add_drv -m 'fuse 0666 root sys' fuse
ln -s /devices/pseudo/fuse@0:fuse /dev/fuse
# Rebooting may be needed to use the new module
# check which /dev/dsk/* have an NTFS signature (ignore garbage)
head -v -c 11 `ls /dev/dsk | sed -e 's!.*!/dev/dsk/&!'`
# device path and mount point to be adjusted to configuration
mount -F lowntfs /dev/dsk/c2t1d0p1 /mnt/windows
Of course you can recompile the driver and utilities from the
provided source tarball. Doing so, you may use either the FUSE
library from the tarball, or an external one, such as the one
available from the SFE

|Plugin source and executables for reading system compressed files
|Deduplicated files||Plugin source and executables for reading deduplicated files
The plugins for reading system compressed files and deduplicated files have to be installed in a specific directory. See the included README file for details.
Below are the fuse kernel module source files and the pluggable
kernel modules. Users wanting to use OpenIndiana standard tools
have to get the development
files from github. Compiling a kernel module also requires
the kernel headers which you have to collect from OpenIndiana.
Older versions of the compiled kernel module and the source files
are also available from the SFE repository.

|Kernel module (4)||fuse-kernel-1.2AR.5.pkg.zip|
The required binary packages have been made available in the Hipster package publisher since April 2016. Three packages are needed, as the fuse library has been taken apart.
# Use publisher http://pkg.openindiana.org/hipster
pkg install pkg:/driver/fuse pkg:/library/libfuse \
They can be used with 32-bit and 64-bit kernels, though only the FUSE packages (kernel module and library) install true 64-bit variants. The plugins for reading system compressed or deduplicated files have not been packaged, but the ones from above are compatible and can be used with the Hipster packages.
