Installing Wireshark on my Eee PC, however, is not a point-and-click affair. Here's what I did to install Wireshark on my Eee.
- Add a the standard Debian repository to the Synaptic Package Manager (http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stable main non-free contrib)
- Open Terminal (ctrl+alt+T on Easy Mode, or run Applications --> System --> Console from Advanced Mode)
- From the terminal, type "sudo apt-get wireshark" to start the download and install process for Wireshark. Should the installation process gets interrupted, issue the "sudo app-get wireshark" command again to continue/finish the installation process.
- Once the installation process is complete, run the program by typing "sudo /usr/bin/wireshark" from the Terminal. If you're running under the Advanced Mode, Wireshark can be found at Application --> Internet --> Wireshark.
That's it! Happy sniffing!
