Sometimes when you open
GNOME settings to the
WiFi page, the “
create hotspot” option is initially greyed out. This can be solved easily by switching to any other settings page and coming straight back makes the option available.
Steps to solve this
- Open GNOME Settings
- Try to activate hotspot, it is greyed out
- Switch back to “
Network” or “
Bluetooth” or any setting page and go back to
Activate hotpot” menu option should be available now
This works in all Linux distros that use GNOME (Ubuntu, Manjaro, Fedora, etc..,)
Thank you, it works!
Glad to know that
