# Unable to load lua plugins in wireshark 2.4.3

Hi,

I have built wireshark 2.4.3 from source. I have some lua scripts which I need to load into wireshark. In "About Wireshark", the path used by the listed plugins is: /usr/local/lib/wireshark/plugins/2.4.3 So I put the lua plugins in that folder. However, when I start wireshark, I dont see the lua plugins listed.

I checked the init.lua script. The 'disable_lua' flag is set to false which means that lua is enabled.

What could I be doing wrong?

Another simple but not obvious one, if you eventually run Wireshark as root, Lua is disabled for security reasons no matter what init.lua says.
