I’ve running manjaro latest version on my physical hardware for coding and development purposes with the following specifications:
Desktop : Gnome
Wifi Adapter : Realtek 8188FTV
CPU : Intel Core 2 Duo
USB : 2.0
Linux Kernel: 5.18
I tried to install the proprietary driver for this wifi adapter by following this link:
I cloned this repository and followed appropriate commands for arch linux instead of Ubuntu. It appears that dkms package has been already added and/or probably installed. But, I could not use this USB wifi adaptor.
To make things worse, now I couldn’t even connect to USB Ethernet as the Network Manager isn’t running anymore. Now, I am totally out of connection and I even tried to run NetworkManager with systemctl command, but it is still not running.
I would be highly thankful if someone help me in getting out of this situation. Please let me know if I need to share any additional information.
