When I click the connect to hidden wifi network , It has stopped to show the list of all hotspots I previously connected to, So i tried to check in settings->network->use as hotspot, Even this failed . I also tried with kde5-nm-connection-editor, This worked perfectly before the update, but now even it is not working .. I tried to start a hotpsot in my friends laptops .. Even they are not working :\

  • Try reinstalling kde on your system. It worked for me Hope it works for you too :) – Varshit Jan 30 '16 at 20:02
  • Thanks for responding. Problem is partially solved , Now i am able to create a hotspot, but there is no response after i click on Connect to hidden networks. – Vivek Nynaru Jan 30 '16 at 20:16

This seems to be a bug in 15.10. Creating a normal wifi connection first using Network Manager and then changing the mode to ap in the corresponding configuration file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/<wifi-hotspot> makes it work. (Replace with the name of your connection)


  • Thanks for responding . I have tried all the 3 methods in that link and all of them failed . I have even changed infrastructure -> ap mode even then there is no change . – Vivek Nynaru Jan 30 '16 at 18:37
