Re: Finding init.lua after build from source

Copy init.lua and console.lua to your home Wireshark directory:

     UN*X:             $HOME/.wireshark/
     Windows:       %APPDATA%\Wireshark\


Lua scripts that are in the plugins directory are automatically loaded. You
should remove the "dofile" call from init.lua. Alternatively, you can
explicitly load your Lua script with "-X lua_script":

     $ tshark -Xlua_script:/path/to/foo.lua -r fuzz.pcap

 Hi Tony,



 Thanks, with your help I generated an init.lua file.



 I also added dofile('plugins/mydissector.lua') to the end, to run my
dissector. However, now I'm not sure that it is getting loaded.



 I placed it in the build directory, and then I run
WIRESHARK_RUN_FROM_BUILD_DIRECTORY=1 ./wireshark, but my dissector doesn't
seem to be loaded. I also try inserting blatant syntax errors into init.lua
but no error is generated.



 I have also tried installing and placing init.lua in the "global config
dir" (which for me is apparently /usr/local/share/wireshark/), but same
(lack of) result.



 If you could be so kind as to give me another pointer that would be great.



Thanks,

 Chris

The script takes two parameters:



  make-init-lua.pl $SRC $TEMPLATE



where:

  $SRC is the root of the wireshark source directory, and

  $TEMPLATE is the path to template-init.lua (in the same directory as
make-init-lua.pl).



The result is printed to stdout, so you could redirect it to a file.



  ~/src/wireshark/epan/wslua

  $ ./make-init-lua.pl ../.. template-init.lua > init.lua
