I have an IBM x230 laptop. When I try to scroll anywhere in Wireshark with the track-pad (Button nub in the middle of the keyboard) I am unable to. I have read in this post that other people have had the same issue back in 2007. Is this still a problem? Is there a solution?

What OS and Wireshark version are you using?

Sounds like a driver problem with Synaptics and GTK applications.

possible workarounds are described in that bug report as well (comment #9)
