I want to capture traffic from an USB scanner. But after starting wireshark I can't see a proper interface for USB. Capturing network via eth0 works fine.
Wireshark 1.2.8 openSUSE 11.3 with kernel 188.8.131.52-0.1 libpcap 1.1.1

Since you can't see the USB interface listed, then you can't capture from it.
There's some great information on setting up Wireshark for USB capture on Linux platforms at http://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/USB. Hope that works for you.
