Problems Mounting Drives Formatted With ExFAT In Ubuntu

Plugging in one of my external hard drives into a fresh Ubuntu 12.10 install today and it's failed with the following error message:

mount: unknown filesystem type 'exfat'
Luckily following the instructions on this blog resolved the problem quickly. In short it takes 3 short commands to add exFAT support to your Ubuntu desktop:

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