From the release

Grab the bootstrapped wssdl.lua from the latest release, and put it in your Wireshark Plugin directory (usually ~/.config/wireshark/plugins, ~/.wireshark/plugins or /usr/lib/wireshark/<version>)

From source

The build toolchain needs lua 5.1 or newer, luarocks and the luafilesystem module.

Clone this repository, and from the root directory call make install to install it to ~/.config/wireshark/plugins, or make WS_PLUGIN_DIR=/your/path install to install it to the path of your choice.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
