Installing Wireshark on MacOS is not as simple as `brew install wireshark`

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/03/16

I wish that MacOS Homebrew would warn in advance of any caveates instead of after installing.

Only after brew install wireshark [Wayback] it is told that:

==> wireshark cask is installed, skipping link.
==> Caveats
This formula only installs the command-line utilities by default.

Install with Homebrew Cask:
  brew install --cask wireshark

If your list of available capture interfaces is empty
(default macOS behavior), install ChmodBPF:
  brew install --cask wireshark-chmodbpf

Now what? Do I need to uninstall Wireshark first, or does the cask stuff just work when it is installed?

These two do not make me happy:
