    Please try:
    Code:
    sudo dkms install --force -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2

    Also thank you so much for all of your help, one of the main reasons I chose Ubuntu as a new linux user is because I was told the community support couldn't be beat, and I am so grateful to see just how true that is!

    I'm running the beta for Kubuntu 18.04 and found it would install the driver from the Driver Manager screen.

    It uses this package: https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?k...rtl8812au-dkms

    You could try removing the driver you have and running "sudo apt install rtl8812au-dkms" or look into the Driver Manager app.

    This package exists for 16.04LTS and later releases.

    Do you have any issues with that package when you have a kernel update? Or have you patched the Makefile and/or dkms.conf?

    Haven't seen a kernel update since I used this method. I'll post back if one comes down the pike in the near future.
