I have installed Kubuntu. Now I am trying to install Wireshark but it shows this message. If anyone know the solution please post it.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

 wireshark : Depends: libportaudio2 (>= 19+svn20101113) but it is not installable

             Depends: libwireshark3 (>= 1.10.0) but it is not going to be installed
             Depends: wireshark-common (= 1.10.6-1ubuntu2~ppa2~s) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

why you do not go to wireshark download page and download from source? –  lion Apr 30 '14 at 17:03
