    Arrow wireshark

    Hello, I just have a question about wireshark, when i try to capture packets i have no output except what is sent from my computer. I know my card can go into promiscuous mode since i was using commview for wifi on my windows partition. Anyone know of a solution ?

    Are you running Wireshark as root? (This is one app that really needs to
    be run as root to work properly).

    If you are, then some additional information about your system would be
    in order - particularly around the network card in use.

    I tried going to a terminal and running wireshark as root, this is the message i received (wireshark:5354): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: Is there a way of running root outside the terminal? thanks,

    Hello odbrew,

    Try running it with this command:
    Code:
    kdesu wireshark
    This will run wireshark as root.

    Good luck!

    So if you run /sbin/ifconfig, that'll tell you what the network
    interfaces are on your system. When you start a capture, specify the
    wireless interface and that should get the capture started.
