When trying to mount my 64GB microSD card, it fails. Did a bit of research and found I needed exfat.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:relan/exfat
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fuse-exfat

I can now mount the filesystem manually & everything works fine.
What am I now supposed to do to enable the automount?
Any insights or guidance as to what I can do would be much appreciated.

What do you mean by “automount”? Do want to mount the volume during boot or as soon as it's plugged it? –  David Foerster Oct 5 '13 at 10:16

in /etc/fstab this seems to work ok

/dev/sdb1 /media/sd exfat-fuse defaults,nobootwait,user

but it breaks normal automounting of any non-exfat SD card or USB thumbdrive either there's a way to make it conditional on being an SD card I'm missing or we have to wait for an update in the normal automounting

Since Ubuntu 11.04, exfat drives automount normally if fuse-exfat has been installed.
