So I find myself with a Airbook reformatted for Debian. This is fine and all, but then I realize that all my old data is on a time machine backup. I didn't figure it to be a problem, as I know I have HFS+ drivers in linux. Alas, the time machine backups have some strange directory indirection. So here is a python FUSE module for reading Mac Time Machine backups on linux.

Requires python-fuse. On Debian/Ubuntu, this is installable via apt.

$ sudo apt-get install python-fuse
$ sudo mkdir -p /mnt/{orig,translated}
$ sudo mount /dev/sdc2 /mnt/orig
$ python /mnt/orig /mnt/translated

You'll probably need to be root to view the translated directory.

This should also work on python3 with python3-fuse > 1.0.0
