Install Realtek d723 WiFi driver for GNU/Linux

I’ve been doing a lot of Linux Mint installations lately and one very annoying thing that I found in 2 laptops was the non availability of WiFi driver. Apparently, it’s a new hardware and is not in the Linux kernel. The hardware is Realtek device d723. This new WiFi hardware is being shipped in new PCs and laptops now. Without having the internet, one can’t do almost anything. So it’s important to have this fixed up.

I searched a lot to cache my password for some time after I type it once. All of them said to edit gpg-agent.conf, but none of them worked for my fresh installation of Xubuntu 16.

Make Headers Jump Links In WordPress Posts

You might have noticed that the , headers in my blog posts are links that can be used to jump to that section. These links are called Jump Links.
