Hello, I am having trouble setting wireshark to read OMCI package in Ubuntu 18.04. I was trying to use the https://github.com/antran-ptit/omci-w... omci.lua and BinDecHex.lua to read OMCI package, which was suggested by Wireshark contribute wiki (https://wiki.wireshark.org/Contrib).

I tried to copy these two files into the my global wireshark lua folder

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wireshark/plugins

and then adding the line

dofile(DATA_DIR.."omci.lua")

in my init.lua.

While running the omci-example.pcap, I received the following 2 error:

[string "/usr/lib/x8664-linux-gnu/wireshark/plugins/o..."]:43: module 'BinDecHex' not found: no field package.preload['BinDecHex'] no file '/usr/local/share/lua/5.2/BinDecHex.lua' no file '/usr/local/share/lua/5.2/BinDecHex/init.lua' no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.2/BinDecHex.lua' no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.2/BinDecHex/init.lua' no file '/usr/share/lua/5.2/BinDecHex.lua' no file '/usr/share/lua/5.2/BinDecHex/init.lua' no file './BinDecHex.lua' no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.2/BinDecHex.so' no file '/usr/lib/x8664-linux-gnu/lua/5.2/BinDecHex.so' no file '/usr/lib/lua/5.2/BinDecHex.so' no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.2/loadall.so' no file './BinDecHex.so'

Lua: Error during loading: [string "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wireshark/plugins/B..."]:53: bad argument #1 to 'module' (string expected, got nil)

Appearently the BinDecHex.lua doesn't recognize the module(...,package.seeall)? Any idea how to solve this problem?

Thanks alot! I didn't realize you don't need to add dofile(DATA_DIR.."omci.lua") anymore. Most of all, that module("BinD
