Building .so portable plugin files

asked 2022-06-01 21:01:31 +0000

Is it possible to create a plugin .so file that you can just send to co-workers to add to their installed version of wireshark? I have compiled my plugin using the documentation provided. When I take the .so and tried to copy it to my installed version of wireshark by placing it into the /Applications/ directory I get a bunch of "no such file" errors for files in my build directory. Is there a way to stip these dependencies?

Thanks for any help.

Can you clarify what files this pertains to?

Also, that's not where they go. Open the About Wireshark dialog and select the Folders tab. Look for the entry Personal Plugins. That refers to .local/lib/wireshark/plugins/3-6. Open that folder and put the files there. Probably both .so and .dSYM files.
