I am trying to read a hard drive from a Mac. The other answered questions say to install hfsprogs. The problem is when I try to install it, it says the package cannot be found. Is that package going by a different name now?


try searching for it:

apt search hfs

on xenial I found hfsplus

  • and this package solves your problem? – Phillip -Zyan K Lee- Stockmann Jul 14 '16 at 19:53
  • Yes and running "sudo mount -t hfsplus -o force,rw /dev/sdc2 /media" allowed me to mount the drive – Shane Jul 14 '16 at 20:04
