Can't figure out installation of USB dongle

 
I recently purchased a USB dongle which has WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities. I followed instructions here to install drivers

Code:

git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723bu.git
cd rtl8723bu
source dkms.conf
sudo mkdir /usr/src/$PACKAGE_NAME-$PACKAGE_VERSION
sudo cp -r core hal include os_dep platform dkms.conf Makefile rtl8723b_fw.bin /usr/src/$PACKAGE_NAME-$PACKAGE_VERSION
sudo dkms add $PACKAGE_NAME/$PACKAGE_VERSION
sudo dkms autoinstall $PACKAGE_NAME/$PACKAGE_VERSION


when I attach dongle on USB, here is the output of dmesg

Code:

$ dmesg
