No. The instructions are the same no matter what distro you use. You need kernel-headers, you need working git, gcc, make and the likes, then you can just simply use this script I just made for you:
  1. #!/bin/bash
  2. git clone https://github.com/porjo/mt7601/
  3. if [ $? -eq 1 ]; then echo "Error fetching sources."; exit 1; fi

  4. cd mt7601

  38. cp RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/
  39. depmod -a
  40. cd ../..
Copy code

Save the script to some file, like e.g. mt76.sh and execute it -- voila, you now have the driver compiled and installed. I do repeat, though: you MUST have working kernel-headers installed properly.

There is no generic way of installing drivers, it all depends on what chipset the USB-dongle uses -- some drivers are as simple as "make && make install" and some require extra fiddling, like e.g. getting MT7601U working right does. Also, if you're using one of Loboris's images then there are probably no kernel-headers installed and you need those in order to be able to compile drivers in the first place.

The dongle you linked to uses an MT7601U - chipset, I have one of those dongles myself. There are plenty of instructions on the Internet on how to build drivers for it and the Armbian - distro already has the driver built-in.

I'm not sure what to say about what you give; driving directions mapquest it's extremely well-done and beneficial to the community, and I believe it helps to build our community. Thanks.
