TP-Link8200nd build driver problems

I have problems to build the drivers of wifi.

make clean works perfectly but make return this message:

make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/5.13.13-1-MANJARO/build M=/home/alexisfss/Downloads/drivers/TL-WN8200ND 2.0_LinuxDriverSetup  modules
make[1]: *** /lib/modules/5.13.13-1-MANJARO/build: The file or directory does not exist. Stop.
make: *** [Makefile:1686: modules] Error 2

What need to install/config for the build folder?

And IDK if it affects something but in this Manjaro I’m using i3wm.

Did you install the base-devel package set?

Although not clear - the kernel headers could be missing?

Or maybe you have missed a ./configure command or a similar initialization?

Yeah, just now upgrade the system and install base-devel and linux-headers.

New problem:

make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/5.13.15-1-MANJARO/build M=/home/alexisfss/Descargas/drivers/TL-WN8200ND 2.0_LinuxDriverSetup  modules

There is a couple of PKGBUILD in AUR with relation to the chipset used.

Use this command to list your usb devices


You can look them up using this link - if it is v2 firmware

Select the most appropriate PKGBUILD - most likely a dkms-git package will provide the best longterm result - and build it using pamac. Example

pamac build rtl8192eu-dkms-git

My comment looks awkward in the current context. The referenced topic has since been deleted by the author.

But it was off-topic for the following reasons

  1. The referenced packages does not exist on Manjaro.
  2. As the package manager is not used the method creates a high probability of file conflicts.
  3. It was copy-pasted from another source targeting Ubuntu or Debian.

pacman? Dude im very confused but ok. Oh I just realised, does the .install file only work on Debian based distro?

Very very very very thanks.

I was trying for 3 days for to get this to work.
