I’m trying to dual boot my main desktop at home. I want to use Ubuntu as my main desktop but I can’t totally give up Windows 10. I have been able to dual boot these 2 OSes but it took me a while to get my Archer T9UH to work on my Ubuntu so here we go.
As of today (2/1/2019), my Ubuntu version is the following.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
The Linux kernel is 4.15.0-45-generic. It’s the latest and when you just plug it, it doesn’t work at all. I happened to have a WiFi adapter that just worked with Ubuntu and I ran the following steps.
- Open terminal.
- git clone email@example.com:zebulon2/rtl8814au.git If you don’t git installed yet, install it by running sudo apt install git (Thanks zebulon2!)
- Execute make clean
- Execute make
- Execute sudo make install
- Execute sudo reboot
I’m not so familiar with how this driver with Archer T9UH works. I tried to download their beta driver but it didn’t compile at all, so I had to look around to get it to work on the latest Ubuntu.
Hope this helps someone out there. 🙂
