Let me make myself more specific. I want to use GTK/UI code in dissectors code but everytime I use it, I get linking error(undefined reference to that variable). So, what all Makefiles do I need to change in order to use GTK/UI code in dissectors code? I am stuck at this one for a long time, so any further help would be appreciated.

Thanks and Regards
Vishnu Bhatt

In what way does the tap not work?

Make sure GTK+ is linked to the same code as the dissectors.
