Ok, so this is not only a continuation of your SEVERAL other threads about Kali:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ux-4175633583/
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ng-4175633581/
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ng-4175632738/
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ng-4175628707/

...where you have been REPEATEDLY told to not use Kali, questioned as to why you need to use it (since it's for ADVANCED and experienced Linux users, and only then for security testing), etc. You say "install error", but nothing you've posted above indicates ANY errors at all.

AGAIN: DO NOT USE KALI, period. It is not meant to be used as a desktop for daily use, and again, their own website tells you this. Posting repeated and numerous threads about the same issue and ignoring all the advice you get isn't good. You've also been advised that by default Kali disables wifi.

git
cd
make
sudo make install

-----

You don't "need" that other stuff. You will need to reboot or manually re-load the module once it's compiled. You will need the headers for the currently running kernel to compile it.

$ ls -l /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build

If that doesn't exist or point somewhere valid, then you do NOT have the headers installed.

# modprobe -r rtl8723de
# insmod /full/path/to/module/rtl8723.ko

# dmesg

to make sure it loaded and found what it needed (firmware).

# ip link show

to make sure it got an interface. If it has one, it likely works.

# rfkill list

to make sure it's not blocked in software.

Read the LQ Rules and the forum sticky posts, along with the above posts. You have hijacked someone elses thread, posted SOMETHING (can't tell if it's a question or not), that can't be understood, and have apparently ignored the advice about Kali in general.

Open your own thread for your own question, *AFTER* you read the mentioned posts, along with the "How to ask a smart question" link.
