New install. Wi-Fi setup problems


Hi.
I'm a new user, exploring potential use of M4Linux on an older computer.

Installation went alright, but I'm stuck with Wifi setup.I have an usb adapter which is recognized by the os, but I cannot set it up to connect to my wireless network.
Netconfig doesn't resolve the problem.
I found in one of the earlier postings a ref to wpa-gui, and that seems to have problems too.

root@4MLinux:~$ wpa_gui
wpa-gui: /usr/lib/libQt5Core.so.5: version `Qt_5.13' not found (required by wpa-gui)
root@4MLinux:~$ netconfig
root@4MLinux:~$ connect
Connecting via the wlan0 interface:
udhcpc: started, v1.30.1
udhcpc: sending discover

root@4MLinux:~$

root@4MLinux:/etc/net/wifi$ cat wifi.conf
# Set essid (the Network Name) for your WiFi:
ESSID=MyNetwork

# Set mode (the Operating Mode) for your WiFi:
MODE=auto

# Set key (the WEP Encryption Key) for your WiFi:
KEY=off

# Set WPA Supplicant to control your WiFi:
WPA=yes

# N O T E:
# If you set WPA to "yes", you will also have to edit
# the /etc/net/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf file.

# H I N T:
# You can run 'wifiscan' command to scan
# for available wireless networks.

A web search for "RTL8191SU 802 linux" turns up a number of articles that look to be helpful. I did not feel competent to single out one of them.
