(note: above ‘hv12fjdu.default” may change) sudo ./firesheep-backend –fix-permissions from the backend’s directory (inside the plugin’s directory in ~/.mozilla)

    @icpope amaranthflavius gave a good answer. But you might also simply not have a wireless interface. lo is your local loop back, eth0 is the first ethernet interface and wlan0 is typically your first wireless interface.

  2. amaranthflavius says:

    @icpope in some distros like backtrack sometimes you need to activate the interfaces manually, on terminal tipe “/etc/init.d/networking start” in some new ubuntu baste distros its just “service networking start” ( i think)

  3. icpope says:

    Why do i only have (lo) and (eth0) in my interfaces list? There is no (wlan0).
