I'm glad it worked for you. If you don't mind, please edit your original post to include [SOLVED] so that others looking to resolve the same issue can use this as a resource.

Thank you for this. I did some research on your issue and found that others have had the same issue in the past. Here's an example where the issue was able to be solved:

basically there are pre-compiled versions of the drivers available for download. If you grab a copy of them, put them in the correct place in the file system, and reboot it should hypothetically work. Please try the following and see if it results in a positive behavioral change:

Code: [Select]
sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/rtlwifi
sudo mv rtl8812aefw.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/
sudo mv rtl8812aefw_wowlan.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/
sudo shutdown -r now

Hardware / Re: Install a Canon MG7720 Printer

Canon doesn't offer Linux drivers for a large number of their printers, including the MG7720. In the past I've had luck using Google Cloud Print with many of their wireless printers. My solutions for things was to print to PDF, open the PDF in Chrome, and then print using GCP. The MG7720 is wireless so this should be an option for you.

Another option I've had excellent results with is a 3rd party driver suite called TurboPrint. In my experience it has worked excellently but it's neither free or open source. For years I used TurboPrint with a Canon PIXMA Pro-100 and never had a problem. Here's their link:

Hello iwar, and welcome.

have anyone installed driver for asus PCE-AC51? it runs without the driver but verry poorly
I copy the cd to hd than run sudo ./ no sucsess
this file is for linux from ubuntu

Which driver are you attempting to use and where did you download it from?

there is files for compiling on the cd as well but i can not such things. any? /Ivar

Are you trying to compile the driver and use it on a live system? If so, that almost certainly won't work. Or at least I'm not aware of a way to make it work. You'd need to install the driver files in an installed system.

Let me know about those two points before we move forward.


Development Resources / Re: How do I find the source code?

I removed the other post as 1) being a duplicate; and 2) not being in the relevant section.

I'm not sure how familiar you are with the concept of Debian packaging so I'll give you a brief intro and then link some relevant information.

How do I find the source code so I can compile it from the source?

The source code to what, exactly? Peppermint is not a large monolithic application that can be singularly compiled. Rather it's a combination of hundreds of software packages, each of which can be compiled individually. Those packages are maintained by myriad individuals and organizations but pretty much all of them can be managed with a package management system called "apt". You can access a list of all installed packages using the following command:

Code: [Select]
dpkg -l
And you can download the source code for that package using:

Code: [Select]
apt-get source <PACKAGENAME>
From within the source directory you can install the build dependencies using:

Code: [Select]
apt-get build-dep <PACKAGENAME>
Once done you can compile the package using:

Code: [Select]
You can read up on the specifics of Debian packaging as it covers the standards in place by upstream projects Debian and Ubuntu as well as the Peppermint specific packages:

Also here's a really old tutorial I wrote for Linux Mint on getting started with Debian packaging:

Also the source code for most packages is available on the individual project websites, but there's rarely any consideration for individual Linux distributions and their packaging systems. In those cases you would almost always be compiling and installing directly and without things such as dependency tracking or the ability to easily remove the software. Because the specific vary from project to project, there's no reasonable way for me to be able to proceed with this, but most projects will have compilation and installation instructions available on their respective websites.

Happy to help.

This exists, but it hasn't been updated in an extraordinarily long time:

Beyond that and it takes a little reverse engineering, a little configuration, and a little know-how. You can use an event monitor like xev to isolate which events are actually being read by the operating system when you actuate those buttons. Then you can use something like xbindkeys to map those events to other actions.

If you really want to get into the nitty gritty, there are libraries for "user friendly" programming languages like Python and Go that make customizing input events relatively simple. I've found that documentation on those libraries is often lacking in clarity which results in quite a bit of trial and error.

You don't seem to be alone in having this issue:

Do you mind posting which exact version of the Broadcom driver you're using?


Hello everyone, My name is Jayne, I am Marks wife. I would just like to say a massive THANK YOU from myself and our two sons for all the wonderful messages you have written about Mark, He loved talking to you all and helping everyone, you guys were like his second family.  He was very proud of Peppermint, a friend of ours had a peppermint clock done for him which he loved. Also his mouse mat and wallet had the Peppermint logo on them, we shall all be wearing our Peppermint T shirts when we have his funeral in honour of this wonderful man. THANK YOU once again for all your support, we have read your messages, its lovely to see how loved he was. God Bless all of you. x

Hello Jayne. Thank you for taking the time to check in with us. We can't put into words how grateful we are to have had Mark for all these years. I hope you and your family are weathering the situation well.
