If you are struggled with a distro with systemd for a random reason, you can fix this dumb nonsense of network devices with this command:
ln -s /dev/null /etc/systemd/network/99-default.link
I don't know what will break doing this, but since I'm testing this crap using a VM, I don't really care (but you should, so beware where are you doing this). I've tested on Debian and Arch.
Some people reported that most problems with network manager can be fixed when doing this.

It's just a configuration for sensors of this motherboard (since lm_sensors website is long gone and I never find anything about the sensors for this motherboard). After reading a lot of stuff, I think I figure out to be more readable. Pay attention to some ignored values since some of them is just because I don't have it enabled/present (like case fan, intrusion, etc). Don't mind the way i've formated, blogger doesn't let me use damn tabs (it's on my github).

As I stated here for Windows 10, this one is for windows 7.
I did a lot of research and I don't remember all the sources (sorry, let me know in comments if you have some so I can put here).
There's a shitload of KBs, so I'll not link every single one, you can research yourself right? RIGHT?. I've checked every single KB and none of them have a direct impact to windows functionality (actually, it's just a bunch of hideous reporting mess).
Heres a script to make your life easier. You can run safely after doing a full update (reboot after running the script).

If you use pidgin, you'll notice that pidgin have issues in most window managers (gnome, cinnamon, <put something more here>). I see this issue a lot of times in pidgin's issue tracker but i don't know exactly who did it wrong, but since I'm able to fix it easily....
After searching for a while, I find this (quite old and still an issue). So the problem is the hicolor icon theme... ffs. Let's fix this (atm, it's quite different to fix it, but it works):
1) Go to this folder: /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/tray/hicolor
2) Make a backup or just rename your 16x16 to something else (16x16.old will do it)
3) Link or copy your 22x22 to a new 16x16 folder
4) Restart your WM
It's quite an odd fix, but it works (until someone fix it properly and I have OCD with the problematic icon).

I was trying to configure a notebook with a R8188EU adapter and I see an interesting issue. In some random scenarios, this adapter just doesn't work and gives errors in dmesg like this:
[ 1063.859661] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlp0s26u1u3: link is not ready

You can connect if you try to connect a "hidden network" and actually put your non-hidden ssid there and password, if you don't care to do this every time you boot the system, of course. To fix this issue, edit your /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and add this:
Update: This problem doesn't happens if you use a sane network nomenclature.
