Very nice ov3rwatch!!! Great guide.

Just one question.
Before "make" and "sudo make install", you don't need to "sudo ./configure"?

Sorry, but I'm really new to Zorin and this forum. I have a TL-WN725N wireless adapter that won't come alive in Zorin. I found this discussion but I don't understand it. What's a STICKY and how can I use it to try and solve my issues?

Hi,

sadly this thread is incomplete and needs to be deleted!.

I have a link for you and hopefully our resident WiFi expert MV will swing by to help you with further questions.

Go to this thread here and read it carefully, if you have further problems, please post back:

http://peppermintos.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5619

I don't do WiFi myself so sit tight and wait for MV.

Hope it helps.

Regards Wolfman :D

First, I wanted to add that I am running Zorin OS 7 from a bootable USB drive. Here are the results of the commands given by MV:

live@live:~$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0930:6544 Toshiba Corp. Kingston DataTraveler 2.0 Stick (2GB)

live@live:~$ sudo rfkill list all
live@live:~$

After I ran these I attempted to execute the commands on the site suggested by Wolfman:

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic git

It appeared to do some steps but then reported a series of failures to perform other steps.

Thanks for the quick response - I appreciate it.

What version of zorin are you using? 6 or 7 ?
And is it 32 or 64 bit?

Plug an ethernet cable to get internet, open terminal and give the following 4 commands, the one after the other:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
wget https://realtek-8188cus-wireless-drivers-3444749-ubuntu-1304.googlecode.com/files/rtl8192cu-tjp-dkms_1.6_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i rtl8192cu-tjp-dkms_1.6_all.deb
echo "blacklist rtl8192cu" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf


After all is completed, restart the computer and see if your wireless dongle is now recognized and working.

I performed these steps and seemed to hit an error after the "Get 11" line in step 1. I finished running the steps in case they would be helpful in analyzing this issue.
