I'm using debian sid and I installed gns3 and wireshark. I have a router connected to 2 Virtual PCs and I want to capture the packets, but when I start capturing with wireshark I get the following error "End of file on pipe magic during open".

Hi,

I had the same issue with wireshark on Linuxmint.

Apparently the problem is that we need to configure on GNS3, the location we want to save the wireshark captures.

This can be done at Edit -> Preferences -> Capture -> 'Working directory for capture files:' chosing some location on the machine, other than root.

Hth.
