Just for the record, when you start WireShark (1.9.2) in Mountain Lion, it offers to install an X11 system. If you say yes, it takes you to an Apple Support page which contains a link to the XQuartz project. You have to download and install it. Note that it gets installed in the Utilities folder inside the Applications folder.
When you start WireShark, it asks you to find X11. Navigate to Utilities folder and select XQuartz.
WireShark now freezes for a couple of minutes while it builds font caches - DON'T PANIC! Then the window appears.

Beware. Apple is REMOVING X11 in Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Not an optional install. It's *GONE*!

In a few months, Wireshark will be unusable on up-to-date Macs.

My understanding is that XQuartz will still work. So you should be able to run X11 apps like Wireshark.

Wrong. X11 in OS X was a packaged version of XQuartz. XQuartz (which is an Apple run open-source project) is now the recommended install route to get an X11 server on OS X.

absolutely correct. x11 is no longer an apple project and no longer installed by default. as of my testing in june, this was not yet the case. i'm happy to be wrong!

If Wireshark still requires X11 it should be relisted under REQUIREMENTS here.

I just downloaded it for a networking class. On their site the version is 1.6.8, here it's 1.6.7. Please update as I depend on Macupdate for the most recent versions.

Thanks

This program has been very useful in troubleshooting tracking and analytics. Using the GA debugger only helps for chrome, using this we can see the call any browser makes or even a connected iPad or iPhone!

After trying for a hundred times, I still have problems installing this program. Any workaround for Lion, or is it not supported?
