Do NOT run Wireshark as root, this is a potential security risk. Instead configure your system to allow non-root users to capture, see here for info.

If i do not run wireshark as "sudo wireshark" from terminal it will not detect the interface to packet captures on?
That's because you haven't followed the instruction in the link I gave that tell you how to configure your system to allow non-root users to capture.
