Mounting HFS+ (Mac) filesystem on Linux

After action report Installing hfsprogs I used the cable on my Macbook Pro and saw that I could mount it and copy the files with no problems. When I switched to my main tower I saw that it did neither mount it automatically nor copy the files. Some research yielded that I should install the hfsprogs package from the repositories:

Installing VMWare & Kali on Linux (Pop_os! specifically)
