I am not sure I understand your question.

When I go out in the field... I carry my usb stick with me. On the stick I will have my .so file and .dll file (for windows and linux). As long as that machine has wireshark installed on it...I drop my file in place, start wireshark and see
my dissector working.

That machine now has wireshark and my dissector in place... there is no need to install wireshark again.
Not sure if this helps...if needed...can you collaborate some more..??

Thanks,
Brian

But if they have the wireshark which came with distribution ,is there a way to plugin this dissector into that machine.so that they need not install wireshark again.

    Yes....if you developed your dissector on your local linux
    machine...once you compiled it... it will create a <your
    dissector>.so file.

    This .so file can be given to someone that is running Fedora with
    wireshark installed and they can then run your dissector.

    All they have to do is put the .so file in the plugin directory and it
    will work.

    Hopes this helps.

    Thanks,
    Brian
