MGA7-64 Plasma on Lenovo B50
No installation issues, making sure I installed all packages in above list.
Following wiki
$ wireshark -n userwiretest

It took me some time to get the capture going, turned out I had to"Refesh Interfaces" before it captured anything at all.

$ editcap -r userwiretest wiresharktest50 1-50             
$ mergecap -v -w wiresharkmerged userwiretest wiresharktest50
mergecap: userwiretest is type Wireshark/... - pcapng.

$ randpkt -b 500 -t dns wireshark_dns.pcap

Shows a lot of stuff.

23MB of packages will be retrieved.

Is it ok to continue?


After installation I tried running wireshark from menu.  That works, but it cannot capture.  I had to go to root to really use it, probably how security is configured on this machine.

Ran it from command line and did some captures.  It seems to work as intended.

Approving for 64-bit.
