Here are the commands you need for Ubuntu. Replace BUCKETNAME with the name of your S3 bucket.

cd ~/;

# for Debian (Ubuntu)
sudo apt-get install s3fs;

# for mac use  Brew install s3fs 

echo ACCESS_KEY:SECRET_KEY > ~/.passwd-s3fs;
# confirm entry was added
cat ~/.passwd-s3fs;
chmod 600 .passwd-s3fs;
mkdir ~/BUCKETNAME-s3-drive;
s3fs BUCKETNAME ~/BUCKETNAME-s3-drive;

you can then navigate the s3 drive as a local drive
