Read an exFAT SD card

I have a new digital camera (SONY a5000) but then I find out, that the software to connect this camera to a computer only works for Windows or MacOS. (Could it be that SONY is not a Linux friend?)
The direct use of the SD card gave me an error message "Unable to mount".

After a long search for a solution, I found out this:
The card in my camera is formatted in the exFAT file system, which cannot be mounted by Q4OS without any additional packages.

There are 2 possibilities:

1. Open the Linux console and enter the following:

...q4os-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils


2. With the synaptic package manager : search for "exfat" and then install
     "exfat-fuse" and "exfat-utils".

After the installation of this two exfat packages you can just connect an exFAT drive to your computer and the mounting happens automatically.
So now I am happy with my camera!

I hope this tip will make you happy too!
