WIRESHARK how to used in endless OS


Hi, i tried to used WIRESHARK, and i installed in my sistem, but when i try run, when i click
“start” it says:

"The capture session could not be initiated on interface ‘lo’ (You don’t have permission to capture on that device).
Please check to make sure you have sufficient permissions.

On Debian and Debian derivatives such as Ubuntu, if you have installed Wireshark from a package, try running

sudo dpkg-reconfigure wireshark-common

selecting "<Yes>" in response to the question

Should non-superusers be able to capture packets?

adding yourself to the "wireshark" group by running

sudo usermod -a -G wireshark {your username}

and then logging out and logging back in again."

— AND I DID! … BUT NOTHING HAPPENDS… i think something could happen with de dpkg command… i don’t know, please… help

I thought, if you can install this program using programs center or wherever… why you can’t used it…
Help please!

PD: i love this OS, but sometimes is freakme out, because i can’t do anything that i want… some commands don’t work, etc…


To get support for Wireshark you have to report the error here



Just as a sidenote: Capturing raw data packets won’t work with the Flathub provided Wireshark, as the Flatpak sandbox does not allow to switch the network card into monitor mode.
