Does anyone know how to get this usb dongle working?

I'm not familiar with this wifi device, but I'll try and help you if I can. What image/OS are you trying to get it working on?

if you type "lsusb -t" does it show the device?

Ok I found some drivers for it on github and built a dkms package from it, I have no idea if it will work or not as I don't have a dongle to try it on.

wget https://files.evilbunny.org/rtl8192eu-dk...-1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i rtl8192eu-dkms_4.4.1-1_all.deb

Let me know how it goes.

I've managed to install it through explorer, simply clicking on deb file and installing through GUI. After restart it seems like it's working! Thank you so much!
Could you please explain how did you compile the file so I do not bother you again in the future?

Again big thanks for your support!

The source code is extracted from the deb file and placed into /usr/src/rtl8192eu-4.4.1 and every time the kernel changes it will rebuild the module from source.
