Q: Need help with realtek wifi adapter

RosebladeThis is my first hand experience with Linux so I'm not really sure what has gone wrong. While installing Realtek WiFi adapter I am getting the following error: chmod +x install.sh sudo ./install.sh [sudo] password for roseblade: ################################################## Realtek Wi-Fi d...

 
@ArturMeinild I found the issue and can answer it... Should I?
 
Do what you can - I find it half comical and half tragic .. 😶 I'm at a loss about how else I can explain that it's a really bad idea to go forward with this, for a person who clearly doesn't really know what they're doing.
And it seems like RealTek drivers have to be compiled from source. So advising someone who hasn't used a computer in 10 years to compile a driver for a 10 year old and insecure (and SLOW) wifi adapter isn't something I would do myself.
 
@ArturMeinild they're following the wrong instructions. Added an answer.
@ArturMeinild Well, it completely depends on the author, if they're fine with their current adapter and want to compile from source, then it's completely fine. On the other hand, if they want to purchase a new adapter that's also fine.

Huh ,apparently not:
I guess the build-essentials thing is a meta package.
 
2:55 PM
@terdon Yes, it is a meta package and yes, it includes make: packages.ubuntu.com/focal/build-essential
 
3:18 PM
Yep. I did my classic thing of posting first and checking later. Sorry! :)
 
No worries! I do that too!

Q: How do I logout of askubuntu

mbietenholzSorry - I'm new here, but I couldn't find how to log out of askubuntu.com again. Did I just miss it?
