Hi PackRat

Thanks for that but I do most things as root autocratically. I tried the link you posted with the same effect, I am wondering if there is a file missing on my PC that is causing the fault. I have saved a copy of the process but it is very large so I have added it as an attachment I hope. Like I said before I have no idea what is being mentioned  :D Perhaps you have  :)
Cheers :D

I can never make heads or tails out of those Makefile errors - if you're missing a dependency though, it usually fails early with "can't find ...." or "missing ...".

This blog post looks interesting. Different dongle, but same driver that should be present as of kernel 3.x - you appear to have 4.0; firmware-realtek is installed in VSIDO by default, I believe.

This section may be all you need to do:

Code: [Select]
When the device is inserted to a USB port on the machine, the rtl8192cu module should be loaded. To see if it has been loaded correctly, run the command: lsmod | grep rtl8192cu. If that command returns nothing, you can try to load the module by running the command: sudo modprobe rtl8192cu.
If that doesn't work, looks like he downloaded the same driver you did and ran the install script, not the usual make.
I am tired of talk that comes to nothing.

Hi PackRat

Well I have been trying again and got a bit further I think, anyway, I have now run into make errors but can't find any answers at the moment.
Here is what I am getting

Code: [Select]
/home/gordon/tmp2/driver/rtl8188C_8192C_usb_linux_v4.0.2_9000.20130911/os_dep/linux/os_intfs.c:999:2: warning: (near initialization for ‘rtw_netdev_ops.ndo_select_queue’)

Makefile:584: recipe for target 'modules' failed
make: *** [modules] Error 2

Am I supposed to create a file or folder somewhere or is it going to be some file that is missing that make needs to compile it correctly ?

I will still keep searching for the answer but perhaps you might already know from the above  ;D

Cheers

No. The Makefile or install script should be doing all that for you. If you are running the script as root, you should have permission to write all the necessary files/folders.

Sometimes the file structure of the distro changes and the Makefile / script is obsolete.

Supposedly, the module you need is in the kernel. Did you try to load it with modprobe using the example from that blog?

The Edimax website that lists this driver had a section for tech support, at this point you may want to ask them if the driver is compatible with linux kernel version 4.0 and what you need to do to install it.

Hi

Another go again today. just downloaded rtl8192cu from Github and installed it. It has put into src but still not booting it up I assume that I have to do something else to get it to work, more research required I think  ::)
Cheers :D

You may just need to refresh the modules -

Code: [Select]
sudo depmod -a
or a reboot.

You have a link to the git page you used - I did a quick search and there seem to be a few patched versions of this driver for kernel 3.8 and above. Most require you to also blacklist the native realtek drivers. If that is the case, you need to create the blacklist file file and reboot.

Hi PackRat

I have done that but still no luck, I can find the the driver all over the place now but can't get it to work as yet

the place I found it was https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes is that what you want ?
Cheers :D

Hi there Gordon! As mentioned by PackRat This dongle is natively supported by Linux kernel since v 3.0. So there is no need to install any driver. Can you please post the output of the following command,

Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep rtl8192cu

And if you've got your connection up and running then the best way to check your connection speed is this,
First open terminal and run,

Code: [Select]
sudo wget -O /usr/local/bin/speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest_cli.py

Next give this file permission to execute,

Code: [Select]
sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/speedtest-cli

Now make sure that applications that use Internet like browser, torrent client, download manager are not running.
It's time to test your connection speed, In your terminal simply run the following,

Code: [Select]
speedtest-cli

And speedtest-cli will give your bandwidth results. Advantage of this method over other browser based ones is that there is no extra overhead.
Cheers!!!

gordon@gordon:~$

thanks for that, the only problem is that it won't connect to the internet at all. I have read a load of blogs on the subject and entered loads of thing into various files but nothing seems to get it to fun the relevant file that is RTL8192cu. I had found out that is is auto loaded in firmware-?, I forget the name of the file at the moment, but I can't get it to run. I cant locate the driver all over the place but with no luck.

I ran your other commands but the connection is so slow that it took the goes to get the first one on then the speed test one failed

gordon@gordon:~$ speedtest-cli

Hi hakerdefo,

Problem straight away.

Code: [Select]
gordon@gordon:~$ sudo apt-get install git linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
[sudo] password for gordon:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package linux-headers-generic is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'linux-headers-generic' has no installation candidate

This is what I have been getting all the time  :'( and its doing my head in as I struggle to understand what is going on and keep searching for answers.
Cheers :D
