Ubuntu 20.04 - Add Exfat Support

exFAT support was added in version 1.2.0 of GParted. Ubuntu 20.04 that I'm running right now only has Gparted 1.0. For now, I have to manually create the exfat USB sticks from the command line. However, first, I need to install the exfat-utils package in order to be able to do this:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install exfat-utils -y

Now I can create my exfat partition on my USB stick:

sudo mkfs -t exfat /dev/sd[x]1

Be sure to replace[x] with your drive letter.
