TP-Link Wifi Adapter LED light not Blinking in Manjaro

I have installed Manjaro XFCE in my Laptop, that also has Windows 8.1 in a dual-boot format.

I connect to Wifi using TP-Link (TL-WN823N) adapter and I have installed the driver (rtl8192eu.dkms).

But, the issue is that the LED lights on the adapter never BLINK when using Manjaro, but, the adapter blinks when using Windows. So, why does it happen? And, what is the solution to this issue?

Below are some of the things that I tried but it didn’t solve the issue.

sudo cp trigger /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.8/1-1.8:1.0/
modinfo 8192eu 
modprobe -c | grep -iE '8192eu'
modinfo cfg80211

sudo find / -type d \( -path "/home/user123/win8" -o -path "/home/user123/Edrive" \) -prune -o -print | grep -iE '8192eu\|led'


sudo find /sys/ -type f -iname '*brightness'

Did you install dkms and the kernel headers? Both are needed for dkms to work.

I dunno … but …

ls /sys/class/leds/
modinfo 8192eu

@robin0800 you cant install dkms stuff without headers. Therefor … they have headers.
