Hi there, I am busy with Linux From Scratch. I am struggling to install tshark without any gui(Qt5 and Xorg Libraries) because I want to use lightweight version of Wireshark. Is it possible?

You control the build via CMake options. From the Wireshark Developers Guide:


Don’t build the Wireshark GUI application. Each command line utility has its own BUILD_xxx flag as well. For example, you can use -DBUILD_mmdbresolve=OFF to disable mmdbresolve.
