yes i totaly agree ; the wireshark package ONLY install the CLI core wireshark tool called tshark found in /usr/sbin ; /usr/sbin/tshark will launch that tool ; you will have to dig a little in the man pages for tshark to get things going your way but if you want to use the gnome front-end then you must install it first
