Ubuntu: Hotspot not working after upgrading from 16.10 to 17.04


I am using kde5-mn-connection manager for creating wifi hotspot since none of the default Ubuntu methods works for me.

Recently I upgraded to 17.04 from 16.10 using usb start-up disk

After that when I try to turn on my wifi hotspot the following is displayed

Failed to activate connection


If you are having trouble creating hotspot, then do this. Type this in your command line:

sudo apt install hostapd dnsmasq

Then try creating hotspot again.


Finally I myself found an answer

Install ap-hotspot

Find it in this link https://pkgs.org/download/ap-hotspot

and install it through Gdebi Package installer

Go to Terminal By typing At+ Cntrl + T

Type "sudo ap-hotspot start"

You are done
