No exfat support Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS

at flag

I'm trying to enable support for exfat devices on my Ubuntu OS. It's running version 22.04.2 LTS with the Gnome desktop. I used the command sudo apt install exfatprogs but I'm still unable to format a disk as exfat. I receive this exfat error. I tried the steps on this post with no luck. Any suggestions?

I tried using a shorter volume label and got the same error.

I was able to get exfat working by installing exfatprogs and reducing the characters on the volume label. I neglected to include spaces as a character. It is limited to a certain amount of characters but I'm not sure how many. I was able to use it by naming the volume with fat selected and then selecting other followed by exfat.

Just found I have the same problem since system was updated a couple of weeks ago Running
$ find /lib/modules/ -iname 'exfat'

The system comes back with .............. /lib/modules/5.19.0-43-generic/kernel/fs/exfat /lib/modules/5.19.0-43-generic/kernel/fs/exfat/exfat.ko /lib/modules/5.15.0-75-generic/kernel/fs/exfat /lib/modules/5.15.0-75-generic/kernel/fs/exfat/exfat.ko

Running $ uname -r

The system comes back with .................. 5.19.0-45-generic

I wonder if there is an incompatibility between the Kernel and the version of exfat modules.

I had this problem in March when I first updated to 22.04 - I changed the Kernel to get it working.

Could the same have happened again ?

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
