Wireshark install on Ubuntu 12.04

Just a short note on Wireshark install (needed to beat an Asterisk SIP install into submission)

sudo apt-get install wireshark
sudo useradd -U -M -s /bin/false wireshark
sudo chgrp wireshark /usr/bin/dumpcap
sudo chmod 754 /usr/bin/dumpcap
sudo setcap 'CAP_NET_RAW+eip CAP_NET_ADMIN+eip' /usr/bin/dumpcap
sudo gpasswd -a YOURUSERNAME wireshark
