The distro repositories of Debian and Ubuntu are still stuck on Wireshark 2.x, with no "backports" in sight. Is there a stable 3.0.2 deb available from Wireshark itself? The dev's https://launchpad.net/~wireshark-dev/... is stuck at bionic 2.6.x. I'm also aware of Thomas Dreibholz' https://launchpad.net/~dreibh/+archiv..., but his repo unfortunately carries only Wireshark "nightlies".

Is there a .deb source for stable Wireshark 3.0.x (x>=2)?

The reason why I need 3.0.2 or later is that I need to work with a self-developed extcap plugin which doesn't work correctly with earlier versions of wireshark due to bugs in wireshark. These crucial bugs have been fixed as of 3.0.2.

2019-06-20 09:18:24 +0000 marked best answer Wireshark 3 extcap_example.py not working on Win8.1: not capturing any "fake" packets

My sytem setup is:

  • Win8.1
  • Wireshark 3.0.0 (v3.0.0-0-g937e33de) installed
  • Python 3.7 globally installed
  • example extcap https://github.com/wireshark/wireshark/blob/master/doc/extcap_example.py copied into c:\program files\wireshark\extcap
  • extcap-ex.bat created in c:\program files\wireshark\extcap which starts the installed Python 3.7 interpreter with the extcap_example.py, passing all CLI args to it using %*

Wireshark correctly detects the extcap example plugin. The config dialog correctly comes up, but when trying to start a capture, the following error message box pops up: "No packets captured. As no data was captured, closing temporary capture file. [...]".

It makes no difference running Wireshark as admin or not.

What am I doing wrong? Or is the extcap_example broken on Win/Wireshark 3? For reference, the same extcap_example.py works correctly on Ubuntu Bionic with a development 3.1 version of Wireshark.

Any help greatly appreciated!

unfortunately, accepting your own answer won't work until 50 points, so newcomers cannot do this.

This was a bug in extcap_example.py which has been fixed, see https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=15694.
