Driver doesn't work on Ubuntu 20.04

rtl8812au (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I used this driver on Ubuntu 19.10 with no problems. But now after a fresh install of Ubuntu i ionstalled the driver but the Wifi Card just doesnt get recognized. I think there is a problem becuase of the new Linux kernel. I hope the Wifi driver for RTL8811AU/RTL8812AU will be fixed.
Thank you!

Following an upgrade on two different systems to 20.04 (one from 19.10 and the other from 18.04) I can confirm my USB wifi adaptor did not work on either.

This will probably fix it for you :
git clone -b v5.6.4.2
cd rtl*
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential libelf-dev linux-headers-`uname -r`
sudo make dkms_install

And... Unplug and replug your adapter.
