Since the recent iw update to 6.7, creating an AP is mostly broken. See You will need to either apply the first commit from that PR or downgrade to iw 5.9.

Hello, thanks first of all for the great work, I have been using the app for a long time, before I used create_ap and deluxe, now with the gui, much better, so I have a problem when trying to create an access point with vpn, to create a point normal access, all good, but when I try to use the interface created by the vpn tunnel (tun0) everything goes to zero, I am left without a connection on the pc and the access point link I see that it connects but there is no connection either connectivity, I checked and I get this error, I wouldn't know if it's something with apparmor or the dnsmasq profile, but I repeat myself, even with this error it manages to create the AP, and connect to it although once the vpn is connected, there is no connection.

Sharing Internet using method: nat
Setting /usr/bin/dnsmasq to complain mode.

@yochananmarqos: Thanks for the pointer and sorry for having missed that.

@muekoeff: pkgconfig is part of pkgconf which is a member of base-devel. Users are expected to have base-devel installed using the AUR. See AUR: Prerequisites

pkgconfig should be added as makedepends.

@adrienrx: Do not flag packages out of date unless there is a new stable release available.

Report the issue upstream, it's not a packaging issue.

Right now the creation of a hotspot fails after updating manjaro. Apparmor is preventing dnsmasq to work properly.

A workaround on the manjaro forum is to run this command: ╰─ sudo aa-complain -d /etc/apparmor.d/ dnsmasq

I don't think this is a long term workaround as this is for sure impacting the security of the system. Someone on the manjaro forums is saying the profile of the app should be finely tuned instead. Is this package still maintained ?

for some reason i need to manually enter my root password multiple time to create hotspot. i suspect it polkit issue since it prompt me the polkit password thing but not too sure. this happen recently, before i dont need to do anything to start it.
