Tomomi by Alexander Vereeken is a simple little script to install some realtek wireless drivers in some linux distributions:
Supported Linux distributions
- Arch/ Manjaro/ Antergos
- Ubuntu (and its derivatives eg: elementary os, pop os, kde neon, etc.)
Supported realtek wifi drivers
First check if your wireless card are one of the followings. To check that run
lspci | grep -i 'network'. Mine look like this:
02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter.
- RTL8188eu, RTL8188eus & RTL8188etv
Before you start installing the WiFi driver, make sure you have all the updates installed.
If you have previously installed a kernel update, reboot your computer to avoid errors during installation.
sudo eopkg it -y git curl wget make automake gcc cmake
git clone https://github.com/Alexander88207/Tomomi.git && cd Tomoni
- After that first select Install dependencies.
- Here you choose your distribution and type of linux kernel header you want to install.
- You first check if your linux kernel is of LTS or Current release. To check it open another terminal process and run
uname -r. Mine is a current release and it looks like
- Then run
bash Tomomi.sh again and this time choose Install driver.
- Choose your wireless driver.
- Now you have to select one of the branches. I prefer to use the
- After the process is complete you may or may not remove write-protected regular files.
And that's it. Last but not least
sudo reboot now.
Now you can dance!!
- Every time a new kernel is installed you have to perform these again as there is no
dkms option available for this in solus.
- And you can change the wireless driver installation branch anytime.
