I've installed Elementary OS on HP 15-bw011dx (UEFI/GPT, Secure boot OFF). Ethernet works but the wireless nic does not appear in SYSTEM SETTINGS/NETWORK.
In a terminal I entered the following command per these instructions:
sudo lshw -C network
The terminal returned the identification of my ethernet adapter (RTL8111/8168/8411), etc and its status. It went on to describe my wireless nic in this way:
fff *-network UNCLAIMED
It recognized the controller as Realtek. Laptop driver download (Win) page is here.
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rtlwifi-new-dkms linux-firmware
I then restarted and still the wireless adaptor is absent from SYSTEM SETTINGS/NETWORK and the interface still appears "UNCLAIMED".
According to these instructions I should issue the following commands:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) gcc g++ build-essential dkms git sudo reboot cd rtlwifi_new-rock.new_btcoex make sudo make install sudo modprobe -rv rtl8723be
However, on entering the third command:
bash: cd: rtlwifi_new-rock.new_btcoex: No such file or directory
To recap: I would like to install the driver for Realtek RTL8723BE in Elementary OS (HP 15-bw011dx).
