I guess you installed just the package 'wireshark'. That's only the CLI tools (tshark, etc.), so bash cannot find 'wireshark'. If you need the GUI version, you should install 'wireshark-gnome'

yum install wireshark-gnome

This command is not working. It will help only for install. But not able to use the wireshark.
