    Question cannot use wireshark in kali-pi

    I am using kail-pi over vnc.

    when try to start wireshark i get this message:

    Qt: XKEYBOARD extension not present on the X server.
    Gdk-Message: wireshark: Fatal IO error 2 (No such file or directory) on X server :1.0.

    root@kali:~/Hacking/vpnbook# wireshark
    Qt: XKEYBOARD extension not present on the X server.
    Gdk-Message: wireshark: Fatal IO error 2 (No such file or directory) on X server :1.0.


    What can i do to make wireshark run?

    I am running kali on raspberry pi 3 - 4.9.59-v7_Re4son-Kali-Pi+
    My .vnc/xtartup is:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    unset SESSION_MANAGER
    unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
    vncconfig -nowin &
    exec startxfce4
    this is the only way i could make vnc run without just showing a grey screen (x11vnc crashed all the time)

    my vnc session was started as:
    Code:
    vncserver :1 -geometry 1600x900 -depth 24
    What can i do

    Lack of xkeyboard extension is an old issue with some vnc servers. Kinda thought it's been sorted by now but I guess we have to wait a bit longer.
    For now you can install and run wireshark-gtk instead. That's been working for me.

    Hope that helps.
