Hi, wireshark 1.12.8 is build on centos 6.3. the steps mentioned in the wireshark dev page is followed (configure, make, make install). Now that binary is supposed to install in Ubuntu 16. It is failed due to libgcrypt.so.11 is not found. I checked in internet that Ubuntu 16 is having libgcrypt20. so is there any feasible work around for the binary to run on Ubuntu.

By far the best answer is going to be: compile for your target platform. That is, if you want to run Wireshark on Ubuntu you're going to need to compile it on Ubuntu.
There's some slight chance that, with a lot of painful work, you could get a program compiled on CentOS running on Ubuntu but it wouldn't be a fun road.
FWIW you'd have a much better chance of success using a more modern CentOS (i.e., CentOS 7) if your target is such a modern Ubuntu.
