I'm running ubuntu 19.10 with LXDE desktop. My kernel version is 5.6.0. I've tried installing DKMS using Additional Drivers but after reboot the laptop wifi adapter showing as UNCLAIMED in lshw -c network output. What else should I do to get it working?

    Does this answer your question? ubuntu 18.04 - dlink dwa171 (revC) shows as a memory stick – mikewhatever Mar 21 at 16:53
  • Thanks, after running "./dkms-install.sh" I got this error: "Your kernel headers for kernel 5.6.0-...rc5-generic cannot be found." It asks me to install linux-headers-5.6.0-...rc5-generic package. How can I install it? Thanks again – fedora Mar 21 at 17:10

    You can probably install it from kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline. Also, I am not sure it will work with 5.6, as it is just not practical to support any kernel there is. – mikewhatever Mar 21 at 17:20
  • FYI: You're not using the lubuntu desktop; 18.04 was the last which used LXDE, Lubuntu since 18.10 supports only LXQt packages, and because LXDE relies on GTK+2 libs, it'll [possibly disappear in the very near future (as GTK2 libs are depreciated) – guiverc Mar 21 at 22:05
  • @mikewhatever, on which kernel version I can install the driver? – fedora Mar 22 at 13:50
