I'm now on wireshark 2.0.4!

Can this be modified to correctly show what to edit?

 In order for wireshark be able to capture packets when used by unprivileged
 user, /dev/bpf should be in network group and have read-write permissions.
-For example:
-# chgrp network /dev/bpf*
-# chmod g+r /dev/bpf*
-# chmod g+w /dev/bpf*

 In order for this to persist across reboots, add the following to

-own  bpf* root:network
-perm bpf* 0660
+group   network         bpf*
+perm    bpf*            root:network    0660

The same can be added to tcpdump as well:
