Description of problem:

Tried starting wireshark from my normal user account today and was greeted with the userhelper dialog asking for the root password. I gave that and the app just exited. Starting it from the command line shows this:

[kmaraas@laptop126 ~]$ wireshark 
No protocol specified

(wireshark:6401): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0
[kmaraas@laptop126 ~]$ 

[kmaraas@laptop126 ~]$ rpm -qa wireshark*

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Hmm, I'm not able to reproduce the bug on my test system. Must be some X bug already fixed. Can you still reproduce it?
Comment 2 Kjartan Maraas 2009-02-16 11:51:58 EST
This is from today's rawhide:

[kmaraas@unknown-00-19-d2-37-b6-2c angband-3.0.9b]$ wireshark 
No protocol specified

(wireshark:20162): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0

Running in a GNOME session.

Works for me in rawhide now.
