• difficulty with AC wifi in Gnome: Edimax EW-7811UAC


    This uses RTL8812au chipset, the driver is available in AUR.
    I installed the 2nd one as shown here:

    //:: Running post-transaction hooks…
    (1/1) Install DKMS modules
    ==> dkms install rtl8812au/5.2.20.r11.g39d56eb -k 4.16.10-1-ARCH//

    installed the dkms for the correct kernel, when I reboot, the wifi fails to scan the available network (no lights blinking at all).
    can someone help?

    I get following with terminal commands. How do I make sure it is or is not supported?
    It works well in ubuntu 18.04, but find antergos faster…
