Since you are running Ubuntu, try this. Open a terminal and enter:
Code:
ubuntu-drivers devices
Then copy the output and post here.

I have just got a message from the producer that the driver works with Ubuntu 19.04 but not 20.04. Do you recommend any usb adapter that would work? Thanks anyway for all your help so far!

"The driver support up to Ubuntu 19.04, but can not Ubuntu 20.04.
Note: This driver supports the Linux kernel version V5.4 at most, but higher versions will not work properly."

Do these 3 commands
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo add-apt-repository multiverse
sudo apt update
Then do the install command again.

My mistake! With the USB in, what does it say when you do
Code:
lsusb

no, it must have been disabled or the hardware destroyed, but it would help me a lot to configure the driver for the usb adapter

If the USB is plugged in when you do lsusb it should show even without a driver. Something must be wrong.
