I have Wireshark 1.4.0 running on Vista Home Premium x64. On my screen, the Wireshark toolbar icons are rather hard to read. I tried going through all of the DLLs and EXEs with a (64-bit) resource editor and found no picture data to speak of. Is there a way to modify the toolbar icon set in Wireshark?

Go to this file: C:\Program Files\Wireshark\share\themes\Default\gtk-2.0\gtkrc

and change

gtk-toolbar-icon-size = small-toolbar


gtk-toolbar-icon-size = large-toolbar

Yes, but that only changes the icon's SIZES, not the actual icons themselves. Besides, I don't really care for the way they look. They cramp mah style, ya'know.
