Adding a custom dissector to wireshark

I have a dissector written in Lua for a custom protocol that I would like to decode in wireshark. I placed the Lua script in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wireshark/plugins/3.2/ and restarted wireshark. How can I load and apply the dissector on a sample pcap trace?

I am using wireshark v3.2.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.

Thanks in advance.
