I am running Wireshark 1.12.10 on Fedora 22. I want to use a dissector written by a third party, which requires LUA. Help -> About Wireshark states "without LUA".

I believe I installed Wireshark using yum install. How can I install LUA support for Wireshark?

Best regards

Hi, you'll need an RPM package of Wireshark that was build with LUA support.

Form the changelog on

So that's probably why yours has no LUA support.

Or you can build your own from source, or have someone do it for you..
