Hi, just to add here the issue #75 on git, "Hotspot cannot be discovered despite the application is running". I'm also facing this issue (5.8.18-1-MANJARO; linux-wifi-hotspot 3.2.0-1) and currently, alternatively, using the create_ap directly.

@alium: Updated.

sha256sums is wrong

@ragouel Thanks for the reply. I have cleared pkgbuild cache. I'm on the latest Manjaro. I'm not sure it's a Manjaro-specific issue.

@js_f I cannot reproduce your issue. Try a clean build. Remove pkgbuild cache of linux-wifi-hotspot before updating.

I can't build the AUR package, here is the error:

ragouel commented on 2020-05-27 02:41

ok, pkgbuild updated

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-05-26 21:06

I fixed the command in the install file.

ragouel commented on 2020-05-26 17:18

Thanks, sorted.

Some of create_ap's dependencies are already satisfied, including them in the depends array would be redundant.

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-05-26 14:44

The desktop file and icon are now included in the release tarball, FYI.

gksu is no longer needed and all create_ap's dependencies should be included.
