Ubuntu – Wi-Fi not working on Lenovo Ideapad s130


I am using fresh new Lenovo IdeaPad s130 on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. Everything is working fine except for the wifi connection (No Wi-Fi Adapter Found). The network controller is Realtek RTL8821CE.
Following advices on the web, I firstly installed following GIT https://github.com/tomaspinho/rtl8821ce
with no success.
Afterwards I installed https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new
not working as well.
Kernel version is 5.0.0

I am an Ubuntu beginner and would appreciate any help.

Run this command in your Terminal & Reboot your PC.

sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ideapad.conf <<< "blacklist ideapad_laptop"

If you installed any Broadcom driver then uninstall it using the below command:

sudo apt purge bcmwl-kernel-source

Maybe the above commands will help you get Wi-Fi in your PC.
