Currently Apple machines equipped with M1 chips are not officially supported by LucidLink.

The workaround:

You need to install the latest version of MacFUSE and allow it in Security Preferences. More information on managing system extensions on Apple M1 machines can be found here: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT211860.
