with some experiments I got the laptop to install Mint Mate edition and I love it! First time using Linux and I am really happy with it. So far I have got most of the things working other than brightness always being max and wifi not working at all.
For wifi I have tried some steps which I found of google and the above mentioned website:
I used the above steps, every code got executed without error I think as after entering nothing was returned by the system and I rebooted the system as well. Wifi was still not visible, no hardware detectedHi, I had problems with installing wifi when following OP's advice. I found another solution on ubuntu forum:
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic git
git clone https://github.com/hadess/rtl8723as.git
sudo make install
sudo depmod -a
sudo modprobe r8723bs # in original post there is "8723bs" but it was not working me, only with added "r"
After the above steps I went on reading how other users got their wifi to work, reference --->
I downloaded the .deb files and installed it and rebooted the system to check if it did the trick, still no wifi hardware found.
I did the above mentioned steps it downloaded the file and stored it but nothing happened. Everyone else seems to have issue with sound but I was lucky on that part and I fixed the sound issues sadly I am stuck with no wifiThe wifi stuff wasn't working for me on 16.04, but I got it to work with this (with USB net plugged in):
wget https://github.com/jfwells/linux-asus-t ... 4-sdio.txt
I figured it out by doing dmesg | grep firm to see if I had any firmware errors.
Still no sound, though.
When I read this, I downloaded the files provided by AndyLavr on the website http://acerium.ru/english/ this one https://yadi.sk/d/XG1e_nEcyt6vJTo get wifi working, I just had to push the drivers provided by AndyLavr and to modprobe
And pushed the drivers by using the code
Code: Select all
sudo modprobe r8723bs
I am pretty new to linux so I am sorry if I did something wrong and troubling you guys for my mistake. Any help with this regards will be appreciated from the bottom of my heart. Only way I can connect right now is to use a usb based router but it is an issue when I travel. With so many people having success getting their wifi to work, I was hoping that it won't be this hard.
