i have tried compiling this and also with the one i got from its manufactures. both are giving same make error.. When i make all....

make[2]: *** [/home/user/Downloads/rtl8188eu-4.1.8_9499/os_dep/ioctl_cfg80211.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [_module_/home/user/Downloads/rtl8188eu-4.1.8_9499] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-53-generic'
make: *** [modules] Error 2

also my kernel headers(generic also) are up to date.

  • Please edit your question and add the output of apt-cache policy linux-headers-3.13.0-53-generic – A.B. May 30 '15 at 10:38

You compile a wrong branch for your kernel. Do this

sudo apt-get install git
git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git
cd rtlwifi_new
sudo make install
  • And why is https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu the wrong branch? In github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new are only drivers for rtl8192ce, rtl8192se, rtl8192de, rtl8188ee, rtl8192ee, rtl8723ae, rtl8723be, and rtl8821ae. And I can compile the branch github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu/tree/v4.1.8_9499 with the 3.x kernel. – A.B. May 30 '15 at 10:29
  • This correct repo, but branch master should be tried. I can look what code change is, but it will work from rtlwifi_new either way. – Pilot6 May 30 '15 at 10:34
