Major distributions will have it packaged as part of the standard packages.

Using your distributions package is a good idea to ensure it is kept up to date when security bugs are found.

Debian / Ubuntu

apt install wireshark

Fedora / RedHat

yum install wireshark

Search for a guide for your distribution and wireshark to ensure you configure user permissions correctly.

You can either:

  1. download the source code and build it yourself;
  2. install the standard Wireshark package or packages for your Linux distribution, if your distribution has one;
  3. find some third-party package, such as an Ubuntu PPA for Wireshark.

The only download currently offered by the Wireshark project is the source download.
