Repository for the stand-alone RTL8188EU driver.

Compiling & Building


To compile the driver, you need to have make and a compiler installed. In addition, you must have the kernel headers installed. If you do not understand what this means, consult your distro.


make all


sudo make install


The module can also be installed with DKMS. Make sure to install the dkms package first.

sudo dkms add ./rtl8188eu
sudo dkms build 8188eu/1.0
sudo dkms install 8188eu/1.0
