The logged in user is an administrator The Ethernet (Wired) connection is active.

Somewhere I saw that this issue can be an indication that Wireshark did not install completely or correctly. So based on that info I reinstalled using the source file, extracted and compiled.

$ wget

$ tar -xf wireshark-2.6.4.tar.xz -C /tmp

$ cd /tmp/wireshark-2.6.4

$ ./

$ ./configure –enable-setcap-install

$ make

$ sudo make install

$ sudo ldconfig

Thanks to for the solution.

Did you logout and login again?

I did logout and logged in again but that did not solve the problem, still no Ethernet interfaces shown. There is a Random Packet Generator and a UDP Listener remote capture but nothing else.
