Good day, Thank you very much for your time and patience. Since we did not have official firmware supported Ubuntu 20.04, only driver for Linux (kernel 2.6.18 ~ 4.4.3), so did you get the suitable driver for Ubuntu 20.04 first? Thanks a lot.

Ubuntu 20.04's kernel is 5.4.0-66, which is not listed in the driver versions in the site. I have also purchased this extender and cannot install it in ubuntu. There are libraries included in the existing driver that do not exist in the new kernel and the code cannot be compiled.

(I am actually trying to install V2, not V3 like the original post's writer.)
