Can't install rtl8812au USB wireless

KahrenAKahrenA Posts: 3New Member

Had successfully installed rtl8812au on the pre-installed Ubuntu 16.04 (followed instructions @ https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux BUT I needed to get MRAA to work... For that I upgraded the kernel following instructions @ http://wiki.up-community.org/Ubuntu.
After upgrading successfully, uname -srv : Linux 4.10.0-42-generic #5000~upboard11-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jun 25 15:58:51 UTC 2018 ... I can not install the USB wireless adapter. The problem seems to be the linux header files...sudo apt list --installed | grep headers returns 4.14.0-041400201711122031-upboard is installed...
under lib modules I now see 4.10.0-41-generic, 4.14.0-041400201711122031-upboard-generic and 4.15.0.33-generic...
Its a mess! Now when I reboot I get grub asking me 4.10 vs 4.15... and I can't enable my wireless and I need to...
What do you recommend? debug.log attached

    Hi @KahrenA ,

    If you do sudo apt-get autoremove --purge 'linux-.*generic' before installing the new kernel,
    you'll just get the new kernel installed in your system.

    Cheers!
