I am having trouble with getting my wifi to work. I installed ubuntu alongside windows 8.1 (Its really weird, I choose UEFI mode to go into windows and legacy mode to go into Ubuntu 12.04). Anyhow the only internet that I can get is a wired internet connection and my home wifi (I added that when installing). There is no wifi icon in the top bar but I am connected to our home wifi because I can load webpages. The driver I would need is Realtek RLT8188ee, which has no linux variation available. I tried this guide here Wireless not working on Toshiba Satellite C55-A5281 .
Every thing was fine until I ran the
sudo make install commands. Errors are here http://i.imgur.com/UHGlIN8.png?1 (red is
make blue is
sudo make install, these were the only errors I saw).
In case anyone cares I ran
uname -mr in terminal and this came out
I also ran the final command
sudo modprobe rlt8188ee and it just returned to a command line, like what happens when a command is done, so i assumed that worked or depended on the previous commands to work.
So what do I do? How do I fix the driver? I'm not the most advanced in Ubuntu so if you could break things down a little more, or even explain what it does that would be great.
Oh and this is AMD architecture
As asked by chili555 I ran those commands and pasted the results here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9503274/ The first block was the first command and so on and so forth.
Thought I'd give an update: The wifi is now working after I ran updates and restarted. I still cannot see wifi options and status in the top bar, but i can see it in settings->network.
Sorry to waste your time.
