can't open wireshark on kali RPI

Fri Aug 16, 2019 10:48 am

Hello, I have installed kali on my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and it works great, the only problem is when I try to open wireshark through vnc, it won't open.
This is the output of the command:

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~/Desktop# wireshark 
Qt: XKEYBOARD extension not present on the X server.
Gdk-Message: 10:46:44.736: wireshark: Fatal IO error 2 (No such file or directory) on X server :1.0.

[email protected]:~/Desktop# 
Does anyone know what's causing this problem?

Questions about Kali are best asked on Kali's own forum.

I'll try to ask there, although I don't think it's distribution related.

So have you confirmed this by replicating the issue while running the Raspberry Pi supported Raspbian Operating System?

No, but it seems to be a problem with qt since wireshark has GUI

It might be an issue with the capabilities of the vnc server. A similar issue is described and reolved
here.
