You have to run it as root. I'm surprised you saw an interface list at
all - I don't, if I don't start it as root.

It's simplest to start it using gksudo from a terminal:

   gksudo wireshark

You may see a message that lua has been disabled; this is normal.

Rest assured that even if you personally are having difficulties with
wireshark, it is not wireshark that is at fault.

I'm in Oz (AEST) - call me on 02-63957435 if you need a hand.
