    1. First of all, make sure that your machine supports infrastructure wifi mode by using the process described in the article.
      Also make sure that python is installed.
      If both conditions are fulfilled, then make sure that you have got the hostapd package installed for Mint distro.
      Let me know whether it works after that.
