How to show real-time packet in terminal?


Hi all,

I just installed wireshark on my ubuntu 12.04. Is it possible to see the real-time packet in terminal rather than in the GUI?

I did "[email protected]:~$ sudo wireshark -i eth0 -S -l -k", but it opened a wireshark GUI and begin to capture and show all the packets in the GUI, but I want the packets also show up in the terminal. Is there any arguments let me to achieve this?
