Please contact Roland King via nrf-ble-sniffer-osx, assuming that is what you mean. As this is not a Wireshark problem itself please contact the relevant forum.

That's probably because you're missing some relevant plugin I assume.

I fix it. The ble=sniffer-osx can't find Wireshark because my access to /usr/local/bin is denied. I have to type the following command in terminal: sudo chown -R $(whoami) /usr/local/bin

After that, Wireshark works well.
