How are you trying to open the file on your desktop?

I is probably a matter of permissions. The file is created with owner root:root, which you desktop session probably isn't. They way to get around this is to change to file ownership, ie `sudo chown <user>:<usergroup> <path to desktopfile>'.

Hi all,
I am not able to save the capture file.
 First I open wiresahrk with the root password.
And after i capture,
1) I give the filter as "http && tcp.port eq 80" 2) While saving I click on the "Displayed"
3) I save  the file on desktop
This I am doing in linux.
