#StackBounty: #drivers #wireless #kernel #compiling #dkms Can't install rtl8192eu-linux-driver on UBUNTU 18.10

Bounty: 50

I am using UBUNTU 18.10 and I had problem with TL-WN822n v5 driver in UBUNTU and Kali (4.19.0-kali5-amd64)

The problem is driver=rtl8xxxu so I found a driver in this page :

and installed the driver on Kali and it worked perfectly fine but when I wanted to install it on my ubuntu, after I ran the sudo dkms install rtl8192eu/1.0; I got this error :

Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...

'make' all KVER=4.18.0-25-generic...(bad exit status: 2)
ERROR (dkms apport): binary package for rtl8192eu: 1.0 not found
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.18.0-25-generic (x86_64)

and This is my Log file (/var/lib/dkms/rtl8192eu/1.0/build/make.log) :
