    Wireshark shows no ethernet available

    Wireshark does not show any ethernet interfaces available for capture, on Ubuntu 12.1, Kubuntu 12.1 and Mint14. However, same computer and same Wireshark on SuSE 12.1 shows eth0, lo, etc.. available for capture.
    Why?

    however you shouldnt run wireshark with sudo/root or at least it is not recommended.

    I always run it as root but I know what I am doing, you obviously dont so read the above link.

    You could always open a terminal and type
    (using eth0 as an example)
    Code:
    tcpdump -w trace.pcap  -i eth0 -s 1600
    Then you could import that file into your wireshark.

    You can also limit the command line if you wanted to filter by port destination, host , protocol etc....
    You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses, as the pig got up and slowly walked away.
