So please don't continue being disrespectful to the OP of this thread and those trying to help him, just make your own thread and we can help you.
Now I'm being disrespectful for doing a search and thinking my problem is the same?

Suggested Reading, Please

In the Newbie Hints section, a number of folks mention reading up on using Linux. A trip to the "big box" book store garnered a choice of four books on Linux.

Download https://www.dropbox.com/s/gwgxs21n48k841j/ath10k.tar.gz?dl=0 These files are from a newer linux-firmware package.

Select a mirror site and download the package, transfer it to Linux Mint, and see if it will install with a double click using gdebi
