Would it make sense to shift development of Qtshark to Qt5? I don't see
much merrit in supporting both Qt4 and Qt5 and at least on my openSUSE
system, I need to reinstall the development packages because they can't
coexist, making build stuff for Qt5 extremly inconvenient. Oh, and regarding
long time maintainance I'd rather have Qt5 support than Qt4 support.

It might. Qt5 wasn't usable until recently, so most of the development
so far has been with Qt4. Are the APIs really that different, however?
So far supporting both hasn't been nearly as much trouble as supporting
GTK2 and GTK3.

It's not so much the coding (with some features only available in the newer
version), it's the testing ;)

Can you try adding the following to your GTK settings (which might be
named ~/.gtkrc-2.0 or ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini)?

gtk-scrolled-window-placement = top-right

On my laptop this moves the vertical scrollbars to the left. It seems
really odd to have a setting for this in a single application instead of

Wow, I wasn't aware of that. Wireshark is the only gtk-application I run
regularly (probably the only one I started this month), but it is still
very nice to know. Now I can comfortably use Wireshark again.

Many thanks!

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
