Ubuntu – How to install and mount an exFAT partition?


I have searched around here and with Google, and none of the instructions I have found work with Oneric.

How do install exFAT and mount an exFAT partition in the latest release of Kubuntu?

Best Answer

You will need the packages exfat-fuse and exfat-utils to allow you to read and write on exFAT drives:

For 14.04 and higher:

sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils

Afterwards you just need to plug in the HDD and you're good to go.
