Unable to mount exFAT file system - jyc88 - 07-22-2020

When trying to open an exFAT formatted drive in Mobian's file manager an error message pops up saying: unknown filesystem type 'exfat'

I tried installing exfat-fuse and exfat-utils, but still get the error message. Are there some additional things missing that are keeping this from working?

I know it certainly works after installing those two packages and mounting it manually. I can then access its contents using the file manager.
My SD card is mounted that way on fstab.
I am not sure if automounting exfat volumes works.
I think that was the reason I added my SD card to fstab.

Weird. I still get the same error message when trying to mount exFAT filesystems manually from the terminal. I definitely have exfat-fuse and exfat-utils installed at this point. I'm using a CE pinephone with the VCONN switches removed and haven't had any issues mounting FAT32, EXT4, and NTFS (after installing ntfs-3g) formatted SD cards or USB flash drives.

mount.exfat-fuse /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sdcard
works in my case...

Looks like I had just forgotten the ".exfat-fuse" when manually mounting. So I am able to mount it from the terminal now. Thanks!
