How to modify Link Layer Header for Bluetooth captures ?

Hi, I've recently noticed that my Wireshark (2.6.10) installed on Mint 19.3 would only propose me to capture Bluetooth traffic with the following Link-layer Header "Bluetooth HCI UART transport layer plus pseudo-header".

Is it possible for me to change this ? I'd like to have the "Bluetooth Linux Monitor" Link Layer Header proposed instead. (Like on my other computer, running on Manjaro)

Would someone be able to clarify what's the difference between these two "Link Layer Headers" and if it makes any real difference when it comes to capture bluetooth traffic with Wireshark?

Thanks :-)
