Right now I can't do the capturing.image descriptionI cant attach the image so I am providing the link where you can see the image: Science Forum

Try running

sudo dpkg-reconfigure wireshark-common

on your machine. Answer <yes> to "Should non-superusers be able to capture packets?"

Thanks a lot. I installed another version and then ran as an administrator. After that I was able to see the interfaces and capture.
