Hello. It does not work.
I have made so:

terminal writes:

delarante@ubuntu:~$ sudo kismet
Password:
Server options: none
Client options: none
Starting server...
Suid priv-dropping disabled. This may not be secure.
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
FATAL: Unknown capture source type 'prism2' in source 'prism2,eth1,prism2source'
Waiting for server to start before startuing UI...
delarante@ubuntu:~$

And i have made so
terminal writes:

root@ubuntu:~ # kismet
terminal writes:
Server options: none
Client options: none
Waiting for server to start before startuing UI...
Suid priv-dropping disabled. This may not be secure.
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
FATAL: Unknown capture source type 'prism2' in source 'prism2,eth1,prism2source'

What do I do not correctly?
Please write more detailed what to do.
