Compiling Archer T600U Plus WiFi USB Adapter on GNU/Linux with dkms

In this very short post, I am going to show you how to compile TPLINK USB Adapter module on GNU/Linux with dkms. I am using Pop OS 19.10.

$ sudo apt install git dkms
$ git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git
$ cd rtl8812au
$ sudo ./dkms-install.sh

If everything goes well you should get an output similar to below.
