Smile I've set up a hotspot in linux,how to forward the network traffic to a socks5 proxy?

I have a laptop with ubuntu-mate installed on it. I've set up a hotspot in linux for my kindle to use and it worked very well. Some important codes in my script are as follows:

sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
sudo sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
sudo hostapd /etc/ap-hotspot.conf
Now I have a socks5 proxy on port 1090 in linux. The question is, how to let kindle use the proxy automatically when it connects to the hotspot? Please tell me how to do it in linux, because there's no way to set up a proxy in kindle per se.

Thank you.

I suppose you could do something like:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -s -p tcp --dport 1090 -j DNAT --to-destination
