How to access exFAT filesystem

Linux does not support exFAT by default but it can be added.
This is a solution to the error:
"Cannot mount unknown filesystem type ‘exfat’."

1 Open Terminal

Open the GNOME Launcher, launch Terminal and type in the following command:

sudo apt install exfat-fuse exfat-utils

Enter your password when prompted.

2 exfat-utils installed


The process is complete once the terminal returns to a flashing cursor.
You can now connect your exFAT device.
