Everytime I want to run make while installing a driver, I get these error messages :

make[1]: ***[_module_/home/alaa/Downloads/rtl_92ce_92se_92de_8723ae_linux_mac80211_0006.0514.2012] Error 2 
make[1]: Leaving directory/usr/src/linux-headers-3.8.0-19-generic'
make: * [all] Error 2

How can I get this solved?

    The error message seems to be truncated, can you edit your question with the correct, complete error message? – jobin Dec 17 '13 at 8:11

It seems your kernel header files are missing :

Try sudo apt-get install linux-headers-YOUR-KERNEL-VERSION. Then try make again or sudo make

  • I've already done this. I really don't know what is going on – Rickthe3rd Dec 17 '13 at 17:10
  • Try with sudo make – yilmi Dec 17 '13 at 17:34
