Ubuntu 18.04 Live exfat



  • So for whatever reason I can't get exfat to install.

    sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils -y

    Am I insane?



  • @dustinb3403 said in Ubuntu 18.04 Live exfat:

    sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils -y

    a quick google search:

    Add the PPA to your sources list by running

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:relan/exfat

    in your favourite terminal emulator

    Install the fuse-exfat and the exfat-utils packages:

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install fuse-exfat exfat-utils

    Now you should be able to use the SSD



  • grr. . . since when do I need to add the repo. . .

    Not all the time but I add the Odjen repo for Apache and PHP since the Ubuntu 16.04 and newer are otdated at times.



  • @wrcombs I tried your recommendation.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:relan/exfat

    gave me

    tag:launchpad.net:2008:redacted
    More info: https://launchpad.net/~relan/+archive/ubuntu/exfat
    Press [ENTER] to continue or Ctrl-c to cancel adding it.

    'Error reading https://keyserver.ubuntu.com/pks/lookup?op=get&options=mr&exact=on&search=0xtag:launchpad.net:2008:redacted: Not Found'

    So I manually added

    ppa:relan/exfat

    to my repositories. So far, so good. Then

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install fuse-exfat exfat-utils

    gave me

  • @wrcombs I feel I should add that, until last night, the following had been working for me:

    sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils

    Last night, functionality changed. I can still read exFAT microSD cards, but I can't write to them. I did try

    sudo apt-get remove exfat-fuse

    then reinstalling with the original code. That failure brought me here.

    Anyway, I don't know what's different. All I've been using the Terminal for is daily update/upgrade, and launching Firefox.



  • @moonraccoon Im wondering, would it be different for a Micro SD card? from my post, It says SSD.. wondering if there is any difference there.

    Perhaps I'm missing something that y'all already have installed? I'm mostly a newb who just follows the It's Foss site for recommended first things to do after installing whatever Ubuntu version (in this case 18.04 LTS).

    If it matters, when I right click a file and select "Copy to..." and then select a microSD as the destination, it errors out as

    Error while copying to "[name of card]".
    The destination is read-only.

    ..yet I transferred files to this card two days ago.

    I have no idea whether there's a difference between SSD and microSD, when they're formatted with the same structure.

    Do you think it matters that I used this card in a new android device (Lenovo tablet) yesterday? (The files copied to the microSD were .mp4 and .mkv files, and I deleted them from the card using the new tablet.)

    Try this From Here

    Try the manual way,

    Open terminal and open sources list:

    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    Add the lines: Look your ubuntu version and change zesty to yours.

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/daily/ubuntu zesty main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/daily/ubuntu zesty main
    Add key:

    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 4E1F8A59
    Run command:

    sudo apt-get update
    Now you can install packages from this repo.

    This is a template to add any repository from ppa.
    Edit



  • @wrcombs My newbness is about to show again.

    When I look at sources.list, some lines are preceded by a single hash plus a space (# ), some by a double hash plus a space (## ), and some with no hash at all.

    Do I need to add any hashes? I ask b/c I added the lines without hashes, and this is the result

    Hey, its okay. Im a newb too! I just have good research "skillz" (if you can call google savvy a skill....)
    We can always learn more. Maybe even starting your own thread with your problems would give everyone a better idea, and the ability to help you out.
