Wireshark failing to open
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Error: wireshark: error while loading shared libraries: libQt5Multimedia.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

qt5-multimedia is needed at runtime. @kyrios123 you seem to be the maintainer. Are you seeing a similar error on your end?

Wireshark is also failing to read my ethernet and wifi interfaces which is leading me to believe that it is missing another runtime dependency.

Re: latest comment

Wireshark has to be opened with sudo for reading interfaces. Interesting. First error still holds true.

I'll check for qt5-multimedia.... Perhaps it was installed on my system and I missed it.

I should've read the wiki. I'm a chump. Thanks for the fix to the package

no prob, was all my fault !
