I have Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8822CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter integrated with my motherboard. I'm trying to find drivers, and I come across this package.
However, this package doesn't work, it gives me this error:

About to run dkms install steps...
Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file.
File: /usr/src/rtl8821ce-v5.5.2_34066.20200325/dkms.conf does not exist.

Finished running dkms install steps.

And I came across this post.
Their solution was to use dpkg-reconfigure. I tried looking for an Arch equivalent to it, and its containing package debconf, until I came to the realization there may not be any Arch equivalent of either.

I also did try the steps detailed here which pretty much uses the same package. Here's some info:

  • Kernel Version: 5.10.46-1-lts
  • Hardware Model: HP HP ENVY TE01-0xxx
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-8700 CPU @ 3.20GHz × 12
  • OS Type: 64-bit
    Thanks so much (this mobile-data is so painful). Cheers!

  • Yes. I did try to install through the AUR (as someone in my last post recommended I do), that's what the tutorial I link to uses in the section about installing on Arch. Jun 26 at 20:47
  • Revised question w/ more details on DEV: dev.to/baenencalin/…. Jun 27 at 21:34
  • Try install the "firmware-realtek". for your distrubtion. For Debian it's "apt install firmware-realtek". Jun 28 at 7:40
  • @CinaedSimson I tried sudo yay -S firmware-realtek but it says it says that the target (firmware-realtek) couldn't be found. Jun 29 at 2:04
  • @CinaedSimson I'm on Arch. Jun 29 at 2:04
