no wifi after installing mint 19 cinnamon on HP-14-ck0100ng notebook

Post by iotaa »

I already tried this viewtopic.php?f=53&t=261130 (copying and moving the b43 files to /lib/firmware/b43) but that hasn't worked.
After restarting there are no WiFi networks shown. What should I try next?

In terminal, one line at a time

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install dkms git build-essential
git clone -b extended https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git
sudo dkms add ./rtlwifi_new
sudo dkms install rtlwifi-new/0.6
sudo cp -r rtlwifi_new/firmware/rtlwifi/ /lib/firmware/rtlwifi
echo "options rtl8723de ant_sel=2" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723de.conf
Reboot and check BIOS/UEFI settings to make sure Secure Boot is disabled

May I ask, whether you have encountered any other issues with the HP 14-ck0100ng? I consider buying it and installing Mint. Thanks a ton in advance! :)
