unable to add a plugin to wireshark

Hi,

I have been trying to add a custom plugin for an internal protocol that my company uses , and I chanced upon this example online https://www.mvijayasekhar.me/how-to-write-a-basic-wireshark-dissector/

However, despite the files myproto.so and myproto.la being created and being linked (with a warning for not being compatible on all system), I find that after I start wireshark, the plugin is not found

1) I do start the local version of wireshark using "sudo ./wireshark", so it is not an earlier installed version 2) The Analyze->Enabled Protocols option in the GUI doesn't show my custom protocol

I would be highly grateful if someone more knowledgeable could point out as to where I am going wrong.

regards Tej
