As documented in the ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES section of the Wireshark man page, you can override the default location of personal configuration files using the WIRESHARK_CONFIG_DIR environment variable. This method should work on all platforms.


This environment variable overrides the location of personal configuration files. It defaults to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/wireshark (or $HOME/.wireshark if the former is missing while the latter exists). On Windows, %APPDATA%\Wireshark is used instead. Available since Wireshark 3.0.
