Hello all,

 

I decided to make the switch to Linux on my laptop yesterday as I was getting bored of Windows 10 and decided to change things up a bit.

 

The install went fine but I am not getting any wifi, not as in no signal but Ubuntu isn't detecting the wireless adapter. I've tried everything a Linux illiterate person like me could possibly try but it either doesn't work or there's an error and I don't know how to deal with it.

 

The wireless adapter as given by the "lspci" command in the terminal is:

03:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter

 

 

Any help whatsoever would be amazing as I've put too many hours of troubleshooting into this to give up now and I'd prefer not to fall back to Windows 10.

Reinstall windows 10.

I did the same thing, my audio stopped working and there was no fix available, my wifi kept randomly dropping out, I got a fatal error message that did nothing every startup, screen tearing galore because Compton is fuckin useless, getting a functional wm required me to install gnustep and its when I realized I was literally using nextstep from 1989 30 years after its introduction just to get rid of screen tearing that I uninstalled it and put windows 10 on here instead

Fuck, fair enough. This is just a laptop I use for browsing and YouTube so I guess it isn't worth the hassle.

Sorry for not replying, I ended up installing Linux Mint 19.1 and got the wifi working and all is good and it's heaps better than Windows 10. Thanks for even remotely trying to help my stupid ass.

 

Have a good day.
