I tried using the AUR package, but it says that it cannot find the kernel header.

Start reading from here all the way down

The problem is that i literally can't do anything, once i plug in the adapter.

But do you plug in USB2 or USB3 connector ? Anything in dmesg when you plug it in?

I just tried it on a live linux mint and the problem is even there!

My mouse and keyboard start flashing (rgb) and after a few seconds it freezes completely.

Both usb 2 and 3 give me this problem.

Sorry for the sloppy screen, but i couldn't copypaste it.

Here's the result with dmesg | tail - 30

I can't get much from this ... If you fresh boot with all connected, what happens?

Nothing changes, i might retry dmesg

Okay so after messing a bit around in grub.cfg, i set the default cmd line to "quiet splash" and the other one to "iommu=soft" a trick i learned from older ubuntu installs i did.

Now the system won't die, but the adapter straight up doesn't work (it didn't before as well)

EDIT: Nevermind, because neither of the front usb 3.0 port now.
works. Found it out while trying to tether with my phone

Now i can run dmesg at least...
