Has anybody of you tried to install exfat-nofuse. I am not sure how to install it. Compile it as a module, or recompile my kernel?...

Also, do i have to recompile it after every kernel update? Will it be included in the kernel in the future?


Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

Install Git and get the source code for Exfat-nofuse:

sudo apt-get install git
git clone https://github.com/rxrz/exfat-nofuse.git

Install Exfat-nofuse:

cd exfat-nofuse
sudo make install

Load the Exfat-nofuse module to the kernel:

sudo modprobe exfat_fs
