Policykit rule needs to be patched "sudo" -> "wheel"

And then the user needs to make sure hes in the wheel group.

@TheOrb: Upstream only releases an x64 binary. I can't test for ARM myself, but sounds like it should be fine. I've added aarch64.

TheOrb commented on 2021-07-25 01:44

Is there a reason this package has no aarch64 support? It compiles and runs on a Raspberry Pi 3/4 running Arch/Manjaro with all dependencies being available, when changing the PKGBUILD file to include aarch64 (Unless you are supposed to be able to start the GUI from command line with sudo, instead of authenticating through the prompt after launch, but even then it is still very useful with the GUI, CLI and systemd service working) So please add aarch64 to the arch list

Great work and a good day

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In the future, please use the Flag package out of date option in the upper right.

@CcydtN: Good catch, thanks.

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.
