Two finger scrolling does not work.  scrolling down from the top of the doc does nothing.  page down and scroll bars and plain mouse scroll bar work fine.  so page down a few pages and try to scroll down.  THe scrolling goes up instead of down.  I thought it might be the "natural scrolling" but scrolling up scrolls up too.  all scrolling continuously happens upward regardless of user direction until the top of the document is reached.  

Using an apple magic touchpad, first gen.  It is a separate external device operating through bluetooth.  All was working fine in 5.0 libreoffice.  It also seems to be doing the same thing in Calc when I just checked there too. 

Plain mouse with scroll wheel works fine.  as does other page navigation.  Two finger scrolling works as expected in all other (non LibreOffice) applications too.

workaround for Arch (adapt to your distro) : uninstall 5.1 (Arch "fresh" package) and rename .config/libreoffice/4 folder to 4.bak or something (otherwise the toolbars and menus show up in all black if you just do a downgrade).  Install 5.1 (Arch "still" package).  Go through the 4.bak folders and copy over your extensions, templates, and other customizations.

As an aside, I'll be traveling for the next week or so with limited access plus I had to downgrade to get my work done , so if info is needed, could you provide it @Ryan McClure?

I no not have two finger scrolling with LO with Ubuntu 15.10 on my laptop.
I tried a wireless wheel mouse and it scrolls OK.

On my Netbook with LO and Ubuntu 14.04LTS the two figer scroll WORKS.

Bug is in Ubuntu 15.10 plus LO
