I am new to Linux, and facing a problem running Ubuntu 18.04. I tried to install proprietary drivers for my SD card, but it is still not recognized in Ubuntu.

Step by step guidance for compilation and installation of the needed drivers would be greatly appreciated.

Here is lspci -v result:

04:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTS5229 PCI Express Card Reader (rev 01)
Subsystem: Lenovo RTS5229 PCI Express Card Reader
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 32
Memory at f7900000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: rtsx_pci
Kernel modules: rtsx_pci

Sorry for not replying at time, I was in trip. And many thanks for your kind help. here is what I get after ~$ sudo dmesg | tail -n 50

  • What exactly did you try? Did you properly clean up afterward? – user535733 Jun 14 '18 at 4:28
  • Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Looks like your computer recognises the device and loads a driver for it from the kernel module rtsx_pci. Could you please edit your question to describe what you expect to happen when you connect a memory card to the card reader and what exactly happens instead? Please also include the output of sudo dmesg | tail -n 50 (about 10–30 seconds after connection) and sudo lsblk -f in your question? Thanks. – David Foerster Jun 14 '18 at 8:34
