Wifi Not Showing in newly installed parrot os

Briefly describe your issue below:

Operating System: Parrot GNU/Linux 4.8
KDE Plasma Version: 5.14.5
Qt Version: 5.11.3
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.54.0
Kernel Version: 5.2.0-2parrot1-amd64
OS Type: 64-bit
Processors: 4 × Intel® Core™ i5-4460 CPU @ 3.20GHz
Memory: 7.7 GiB of RAM

I installed it via usb image

Configured to multiboot with other systems? ( no)

List your networking hardware (make, model, firmware version):
I have TP-LINK TLWN7200ND usb adaper and parrot is not able to detect it. Also there is no wifi option in the box where there is option of ethernet. I also checked via ifconfig, there is no wifi showing, but eth0 is there. Plz help solve this issue.

It seems that the issuse is with your wifi adaper’s Driver/Firmware
Reference TP-Link TL-WN7200ND (rt3070/rt2800usb) not working in Kali on notebook
(i dont have any wifi adaper,thus i have never faced such issue)

make sure you have install git, build-essential.
Then git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu, then cd into package and compile it.
Type: make all

After that finishes, type: sudo make install

Finally, let’s add these drivers to the kernel:

sudo dkms add ./rtl8188eu

sudo dkms build 8188eu/1.0

sudo dkms install 8188eu/1.0

After that, we need to copy the firmware bin to it’s correct location

Type: sudo cp rtl8188eufw.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/

Finally, reboot and you should have a working wireless adapter.
