You need to install libpcap*-dev first:

  • sudo apt-get install libpcap*-dev

Extract the tar file, then from the terminal:

cd /path/to/src
./configure --prefix=/usr
sudo make install

Any ideas about this: E: Unable to locate package lsqlite3 ? – TheXed Jan 12 '12 at 1:40
never mind figured it out. – TheXed Jan 12 '12 at 1:42

Even if you receive this error during "./configure":

error: pcap library not found!

installing libsqlite3-dev helps to solve it.

I've installed libpcap and it is still showing me the error. Installing libsqlite3-dev worked for me. – Zack Titan Oct 13 '15 at 7:40

If you receive the "error: sqlite3 library not found!" then run the following prior to configure:

sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev

if permission is denied when using ./configure try sudo sh ./configure

-1 ./configure shouldn't require super-user privileges. – David Foerster Aug 22 '15 at 7:41

Before running ./configure, I needed to install a few libraries in Ubuntu 12.04. Try:

sudo apt-get install sqlite3 libsqlite3 libsqlite3-dev libpcap-dev
