Capturing as normal user

I also had to run:

# setcap 'CAP_NET_RAW+eip CAP_NET_ADMIN+eip' /usr/bin/dumpcap

But I'm not quite sure what it does... I just copy & paste the command from this Wireshark Wiki Page. --Humbapa 15:33, 7 March 2012 (EST)

Qt interface

The Qt interface is in development and have much less features than GTK interface. I think the article should recomend the GTK version even in KDE desktop.--Kizar (talk) 15:18, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Such recommendations are inherently subjective, but if you want to add a short but objective phrase describing potential issues with the Qt client, feel free. -- Alad (talk) 15:47, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Not is subjective, the QT interface is new and many features are still missing. I have problems with english language. I you can write it for me I appreciate. --Kizar (talk) 15:53, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Ok, but it will take me some time as I'd also want to add Template:App. -- Alad (talk) 19:19, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Beyond missing features, objective issues include a bug where network interfaces (especially when it comes to using monitor mode) glitch out and the list resets incessantly. Get past that and you might have issues enabling monitor mode through Wireshark on an interface to begin with. Then there are all sorts of permission issues even if you set things up right with the wireshark group etc, and if you sudo to fix those, a whole host of other stuff breaks. I'll go ahead and add a short caveat to the page. Please feel free to edit it. Paraknight (talk) 23:18, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
