Best Answer

I use Ubuntu 16.04 (Kernel 4.8)

  1. Run

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
  2. Download zip from here on GitHub and unzip it to Desktop.

  3. Change your directory to new unzipped directory (i.e. ~/Desktop/rtbth-dkms-master).

  4. Run the following commands one by one

    sudo make install
    sudo cp -r ~/Desktop/rtbth-dkms-master /usr/src/rtbth-3.9.3
    sudo dkms install rtbth/3.9.3
    sudo nano /etc/modules
  5. Add rtbth at the end, then Ctrl+O and ENTER (to save the file) and Ctrl+x to close the editor

  6. Reboot
