Out of the box? If not, how to install the driver?
Hardware is supported or not supported by the linux kernel that a distribution uses. Some distributions like ubuntu are really rarley updating the linux kernel. In fedora the linux kernel is updated verry regularly, thus more hardware is supported.
You can try a bootable usbstick to check if all of your hardware is supported to your liking.
Further information to your chipset can you find in the gentoo wiki.
It has to be manually installed, below is the information for the driver I used.
I had to manually install dkms, git and kernel-devel. (I’m on F30 XFCE)
Would you have the time to write a “howto” post on this please?

Try this one:
rpmbuild --rebuild https://github.com/rpmsphere/todo/raw/master/src-kmod/rtl8812au-5.3.4-1.src.rpm
rpm -Uvh $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/$HOSTTYPE/rtl8812au-kmod-5.3.4-1.$HOSTTYPE.rpm
Although as mentioned i installed dkms, git and kernel-devel on fedora 30
i am getting the following error, any ideas please?
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.0.9-301.fc30.x86_64 (x86_64) Consult /var/lib/dkms/rtl8812au/5.3.4/build/make.log for more information. Finished running dkms install steps.
please update with the new version, but first remove previous version:
and installing again…

sudo dnf update && sudo dnf upgrade
sudo dnf install dkms git kernel-devel bc make ##this is just in case if something not yet installed
