I'm new in UNIX. I've installed WireShark on Ubuntu 12.04 and there is no interface list in Capture section. There is only text "No interface can be used for capturing in this system with the current configuration". How can I configure system for capturing? I hope to see simple step by step tutorial.

You need to add yourself to the 'wireshark' group to see the interfaces.
Another alternative is running wireshark as root, but this is not recommended, as it can be exploited as an ivasion point to your PC.
