    problem realtek 8723 driver

    Hello,

    Im just trying to install ubuntu on a new computer. I installed ubuntu 12 but did not recognize the wireless device. It is a realtek 8723. I already found the drivers on other topic but I can not install them.

    When I do make I get the following error:

    make -C /lib/modules/3.2.0-23-generic/build M=/home/seldon/realtek driver/rtl_92ce_92se_92de_8723ae_linux_mac80211_0006.0514 .2012 modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.2.0-23-generic'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `driver/rtl_92ce_92se_92de_8723ae_linux_mac80211_0006.0514 .2012'. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.2.0-23-generic'
    make: *** [all] Error 2


    I can not find a solution

    I have already installed build-essentials and linux-headers-3.2.0-23-generic

    unname-e gives me 3.2.0-23-generic

    Anyone out there that can help me please

    Thanks

    I have already installed build-essential
    Are you sure it's all in place?
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -s build-essential
    I am very interested in your device, old driver dawg that I am. Please post:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0280
    Thanks.

    Thanks for answering

    I did as you say:

    When I do sudo dpkg -s build-essential I get:

    Package: build-essential
    Status: install ok installed
    Multi-Arch: foreign
    Priority: optional
    Section: devel
    Installed-size: 37
    Maintainer: Ubuntu Developers
    Architecture: amd64
    Version: 11.5ubuntu2
    Depends: libc6-dev | libc-dev, gcc (>= 4:4.4.3), make, dpkg-dev (>= 1.13.5)
    Description: .....


    When I do lspci -nn | grep 0280 I get

    [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device [10ec:8723]


    It seems the package is well installed, no idea why I can not do make.

    Thanks for the help

    Re: problem realtek 8723 driver

    I downloaded the packages here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/13963...not-recognized

    I extracted and made the files perfectly without even a warning. The only thing that may be different is that I built after sudo su:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/rtl_92ce_92se_92de_8723ae_linux_mac80211_0006.0514.2012
    sudo su
    make
    etc., etc.
    I don't know if the 'make install' installs the firmware properly, we'll need to look at that.

    Please try with sudo su.

    The files I am trying to install I got them from the same thread you mention.

    I also used sudo su before running make and getting the error on the first message.

    Thanks for the help

    Re: problem realtek 8723 driver

    Please try, with a wired ethernet connection:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall build-essential
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-generic
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-`uname -r`
    Those tickmarks are on the left side of my US keyboard on the same key with ~.

    Now try again.
