@Gavin_Andre: Strange, I didn't receive a Github notification.

In the future, please use the Flag package out of date option in the upper right.

Can't enable the "create_ap" service.

The service file is not copied while makepkg because the Makefile under /scr/scrpit/ do a check before copying the file while installing.

I add two lines to the PKGBUILD to solve it. one line creating the directory. Another line moves the folder according to the symbolic link in the root directory to prevent the error while installing.

My solution:

package() {
  cd "${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
  [ -d ${pkgdir}/lib/systemd/system ] || mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/lib/systemd/system
  make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install
  mv ${pkgdir}/lib ${pkgdir}/usr/lib

  install -Dm644 LICENSE -t \
  install -Dm644 src/desktop/hotspot.png \

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.

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.
