I can open Wireshark fine on my newly minted Linux box, capture, analyze, looks good.
When I exit Wireshark, copy my .preferences directory from Windows to Linux, and then load Wireshark once more ... things most look good: The title bar: The Wireshark Network Analyzer [Wireshark 1.10.2 (SVN Rev Unknown from unknown)] The menu bar: File Edit View Go Capture Statistics Telephony Tools Internals Help And the various panels, in brilliant color ... all looks good ... although I notice that the status bar at the bottom is empty ... no way to change Profile, for example ...
If I select an interface and Start capture ... the screen goes mostly blank: The Title and Menu bars remains ... but everything else turns a light grey. I can still stop capture, using the Capture ... Stop ... and save using File ... Save ... and open using File... Open ... but none of this fixes the display: just grey, no packets, no status bar.
If I exit Wireshark, nuke ~/.wireshark, and restart, the GUI returns to full functionality.
So, sounds like some line preferences or preferences_common ... or perhaps in profiles/ ... confuses the GUI.
I can of course start commenting out preferences ... before I walk that path, any suggestions?
