Re: Upper left quarter of the screen becomes "unclickable"

I get this problem fairly often, but I use Mate window manager not XFCE. I think it tends to happen randomly after moving a window to another workspace, but I am not 100% sure. Scrolling my mouse wheel while the cursor is in the dead area doesn't cause the workspace to change. For me, it is the uppe...

Re: Is there any usb AC wifi dongle supported by linux?

One question: it looks as if your driver was designed for the 4.3 kernel series. Does it work just as well on the 4.4 and 4.8 kernel series? It worked fine for me on Linux Mint 18 (kernel v4.4), but I didn't test it extensively; I tested from a live usb environment. I can't speak to kernel v4.8. I'...

Re: Is there any usb AC wifi dongle supported by linux?

Clarification and apologies for mistaken information in my earlier posts: I looked again and the driver provided by the manufacturer actually has the vendor/product id combination in the file. Either way, I spent a fair amount of time and effort trying to get the manufacturer provided driver to work...

Re: Is there any usb AC wifi dongle supported by linux?

Thanks for the work and telling us the result sbosshardt but use it for a while and tell us about the stability of the driver. Sure, I can post back after I've had the adapter in use longer. Do you get any sudden disconnections or instability with network manager? The adapter hasn't disconnected on...

Re: Is there any usb AC wifi dongle supported by linux?

I bought the EW-7833UAC adapter after coming across this thread about a week ago. I was able to compile a working rtl8814AU driver for both Linux Mint 17.3 and 18. It took some effort to get it to work right. The driver supplied by the manufacturer does not have an entry for the device's vendor id a...
