Re: RTL 8191SU I cannot manage to install wireless driver!!
Forget those instructions. As the kid who lives in my basement says, "Dat's messed up."
In order to compile this beauty, you will need to first do, in a terminal with an internet connection:
Where is the file you downloaded? On your desktop? Right-click it and select 'Extract here.' A folder will be created called rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v184.108.40.206.201011 11. Inside it is a folder called 'driver.' Open it and see a file called rtl8712blahetc. Right-click it and select 'Extract here.' A folder will be created called rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v220.127.116.11.201011 11. Now back to the terminal:
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
You don't need to carefully type all that! Just type in:Press Tab and the rest of the first part will fill in. Add driver/rtl and press Tab and the remainder will fill in. Now do:
Post back and let us know how it goes.
