I would like to request that the rtl8821ce driver be included and installed (if applicable hardware is installed) automatically.
This seems to be a common problem area for new users and it took me about 3 days to fix the problem myself. Without this driver, you have to buy a usb ethernet adapter to plug into your laptop (seems that most computers with this adapter do not have an ethernet port). or else you can't even use pacman to install packages.
The way that I obtained and installed the rtl8821ce driver was by doing the following:
- Buying a usb 2.0 Ethernet adapter.
- Installing dpkg, as it did not install when I installed manjaro.
- Installing dkms, also not installed with manjaro
- Using the following commands:
cd desktop git clone https://aur.linux.org/rtl8821ce-dkms-git.git cd rtl8821ce-dkms-git makepkg -sic
Upon reboot, my wifi was up and running.
