so like many users with a realtek wireless driver I've been having problems getting my wireless to work I'm on a Toshiba Satellite C875 My wifi adapter is RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n and my kernal is 3.5.0-36-generic.
I managed to find a post on this site with almost my exact problem and a solution, Newly installed Ubuntu on laptop, Wireless will not fuction , however, just like the poster I'm running into issues at the compiling phase. I've managed to work through a few issues that the poster had.
gcc: error: /lib/modules/3.2.0-34-generic-pae/build/include/linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory gcc: fatal error: no input files
This was caused because autoconf.h is now in a different folder (include/generated). I just had to make a copy of it in the include/linux folder and it got further. Same fix worked for modversions.h, which I found in the include/config folder.
after that though my problems with compiling look remarkably similar. Anyone have any suggestions on how to move forward from here.
This is the section of the solution where I'm having issues
cd rtl8192ce_*/ make clean make sudo make install exit Reboot
After I type in
I get this
make: Entering directory `/home/aktd/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0006.0321.20/HAL/rtl8192' rm -fr *.mod.c *.mod *.o .*.cmd *.ko *~ rm -fr .tmp_versions rm -fr Modules.symvers rm -fr Module.symvers rm -fr Module.markers rm -fr modules.order rm -fr tags make: Entering directory `/' make: *** No rule to make target `clean'.

I feel like I'm so close here, but I just can't quite get it.
oh and I do have linux-headers-3.5.0-36-generic installed before anyone suggests fixing that, as I've seen that come up a lot as a possible solution on forums.
