Ubuntu: unknown filesystem type 'exfat'

Post by peter_b »

[PROBLEM]
Trying to mount an exfat-formatted SD-card in XFCE's Thunar on Xubuntu 14.04 gives me the following error message:
Error mounting /dev/mmcblk1p1 at /media/pb/3662-3034: Command-line `mount -t "exfat" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,iocharset=utf8,namecase=0,errors=remount-ro,umask=0077" "/dev/mmcblk1p1" "/media/pb/3662-3034"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: unknown filesystem type 'exfat'
Of course. Because exfat filesystem is rather new and not installed by default.

[SOLUTION]

Code: Select all

$ apt-get install exfat-utils exfat-fuse
