Hi All,

I just installed wireshark:

# dnf --enablerepo=* install wireshark

Where the heck (not my actual word) did it go? I can't find the turkey (again, not my actual word).

"dnf search wireshark" can be useful

"wireshark" package doesn't contain the GUI, you need to install wireshark-gtk or wireshark-qt if you want an application to run.

Fedora Magazine provides a good tutorial in case you are wondering.

I ended up here because in Fedora 29 the wireshark-qt does not exist. I found out that it was actually deprecated. the wireshark package now installs the GUI with a wireshark-cli package as a dependency.

All of the guides to install Wireshark need updating.
