Re: Preferences lost and settings broken

I was running out of space because when I originally installed I was expecting to go back to Windows, so I only set up a 20gb partition for the install. I intend to stay with Mint now, so I tried for hours to resize the partition, but couldn't get it to work so I had to uninstall and clean instead. ...

Preferences lost and settings broken

Hi guys! So, I've been thoroughly enjoying my Minty experience since JeremyB helped get my WiFi working! Last night though, I was cleaning my setup because I got warnings about drive space. This morning, I booted up to a desktop that's missing all it's preferences (wallpaper, icons, theme, panel cus...

Re: tp-link archer t2u (ac600)

That did it! Now topping 30Mbps! :D You're a genius Sir - thank you so much for not giving up on this! :) Can you PM me your PayPal address so I can send you a little something when I get money on the 14th? I know you don't do this for personal gain, but it's the only way I can think of showing my g...

Re: tp-link archer t2u (ac600)

Here's the output: https://termbin.com/g93c It occurred to me that the modem could actually be faulty, so I booted into Windows 10 and checked it. It's working fine, and connecting at 5g. While I was in there I took a look at the driver that was installed, and saw where you got your thoughts about t...

Re: tp-link archer t2u (ac600)

At the end, I see: rtl8812au: Running module version sanity check. Good news! Module version v4.3.14_13455.20150212_BTCOEX20150128-51 for rtl8812au.ko exactly matches what is already found in kernel 4.15.0-48-generic. DKMS will not replace this module. You may override by specifying --force. depmod....

Re: WiFi Recommendations Requested

that TP-Link Archer T2U Nano doesn't seem to support an Linux System: is that the adapter that you wanted to buy, or the actual one that was supplied ?. NB: you may actually have some issue, in getting an higher speed adapter, that does also work with an Linux System :o - as most of them, so seem t...

Good afternoon all! :) I'm looking for recommendations for a 5G WiFi dongle/card for my Mint system.

Re: tp-link archer t2u (ac600)

Tried it, following these instructions on your Git:

make
sudo make installfw
sudo insmod mt7610u.ko

No errors, but still no working modem :( I appreciate your effort though mate! :)

You can add a custom nemo-action to get a right-click context menu options to send a directory to the desktop as an emblem-less launcher rather than a regular symlink or link type launcher (both of which will have the link emblem).
Brill - thanks! :)
