Is this the error: Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: ?  If so, make 
sure you have Apple's X11 insalled and either start wireshark from an 
X11 xterm screen or set the display variable manually.  For the 
sh/bash/ksh shells do "export DISPLAY=:0.0" or for the tcsh shell do 
"setenv DISPLAY :0.0"

Sorry, never used parallels myself.
