  Vendor-supplied Packages

   Most Linux and Unix vendors supply their own Wireshark packages.
   You can usually install or upgrade Wireshark using the package
   management system specific to that platform. A list of third-party
   packages can be found on the download page on the Wireshark web

File Locations

   Wireshark and TShark look in several different locations for

   These locations vary from platform to platform. You can use
   About->Folders to find the default locations on your system.
