    RealTek RTL8188etv WiFi Adapter driver

    Hi

    I purchased a RealteK 502.11N RTL8188etv USB Network Adapter with monitor mode & frame injection support, it works like a charm in Windows 10 but the drivers supplied with it for LInix were outdated and not compatible with the Kernel: 5.3.0-26-generic of Ubuntu 19.10. I installed the driver from https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8188eus without any errors. When I reboot my laptop and run lsusb I get the following output:

    Code:

    Where am I going wrong?

    Thank you praseodym, installed and connecting 100%, driver doesn't allow for monitor mode & frame injection which the network adapter was purchased for, will use it for my internet connection and use internal card for Kali.
