Did you install Wireshark and no Capture Ineterface list appears? You do not have to install any drivers or any other applications, you just have permission problems.

$ sudo apt-get install wireshark
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure wireshark-common 
$ sudo usermod -a -G wireshark $username 
$ sudo reboot

Change $username to your username without the dollar $ sign, logout and login should work instead of reboot and Capture Interfaces should be listed.
