I'm trying to configure a hotspot in my Linux Mint 15. There are no specific manuals for 15, but I found this video which describes hot to make a hotspot in Mint 14.

Creating it in Mint 15 not much differ, but I cannot find a button to configure hotspot. Here is how my Network Manager looks like when hotspot is on:

enter image description here

I cannot find Options button. Hot can I configure SSID, security type and key without it?

    I don't understand what's the point of removing features and make it impossible to get things done. – Jbm Nov 5 '13 at 1:55
  • Edit /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf and add your encryption type and password. use this link as a pointer. – cleric Jun 19 '15 at 19:23

Haven't used Mint 15 myself, but, you can right click on the Network Manager icon in your panel and select Edit Connections.

Network Connections

You will see a option 'Hotspot' under the Wi-Fi section. Edit that and you can set the SSID, the type of security(WEP/ WPA2) and the key.

Hotspot settings
