F2FS-formatted drive not recognised in Ubuntu 16.04.3

Bug Description

I created a F2FS-based USB drive with gparted and with f2fs-tools installed.

The drive seems to format okay but now it isn't recognised by the OS.

In gparted there is a warning given:

"Unable to read the contents of this file system!
Because of this some operations may be unavailable.
The cause might be a missing software package.
The following list of software packages is required for f2fs file system support: f2fs-tools."

f2fs-tools is definitely installed.

Also the same drive works fine with a fat32 or ext4 filesystem.
