most wireless drivers do not need to be built and installed like that.
What is the wireless card in that machine?

It is TP link usb and it needs a driver otherwise it don't work. This driver I downloaded from tp-link website it is for linux but I can't run it as you can see from above error. Please help I cant find any useful info from other forums.

Ok here is what you need to do if you can connect to the internet via Ethernet cable.
sudo apt-get install git linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
git clone https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver
cd rtl8192eu-linux-driver
sudo dkms add .
sudo dkms install rtl8192eu/1.0
reboot wifi should be working.
Good Luck.
