Hi! I'm running macOS 10.15.1 (Catalina), I've installed Wireshark version 3.0.6 and I get a pop-up every time I launch the app.

Could not create profiles directory "/Users/luke/.config/wireshark"

I've tried finding an answer but nothing works for me.

Could you start a Terminal and give us the output of the commands ls -la /Users/luke/.config and ls -la /Users/luke/.config/wireshark. I expect one, or both, to fail.
