Fedora: wireshark installed but not available

I installed wireshark on my F20/Gnome notebook, and yum has kept it updated:

# grep wire yum*
Jan 28 12:34:15 Installed: wireshark-1.10.5-1.fc20.x86_64
Feb 21 20:15:51 wireshark-1.10.5-2.fc20.x86_64: 100
Feb 21 22:06:04 Updated: wireshark-1.10.5-2.fc20.x86_64
Feb 27 13:16:45 Updated: wireshark-1.10.5-3.fc20.x86_64
Mar 21 19:09:59 Updated: wireshark-1.10.6-1.fc20.x86_64
Mar 28 18:31:25 Updated: wireshark-1.10.6-2.fc20.x86_64

Wireshark does not show as an application. I don't see a bin for wireshark, only a bunch of libs. What may be missing here?

Best answer

The wireshark package only provides the text mode interface, "tshark". If you are looking for the GUI application, "wireshark", youll also need to install wireshark-gnome.

I've followed the instructions to install the flash plugin by downloading the
YUM version and then installing the RPM. I got no errors when doing any of
this. However, flash still does not work in Firefox. If I do 'about:plugins'
it isn't listed.

Any suggestions on what to try next. All I'm getting from Google is variations
of the same instructions I've already done.
