Hello Wireshark-Team,

may you help me? I did a mistake in the beginning to start Wireshark.

On the first time if I start Wireshark I should select the x11 software, but I selected a wrong application by mistake.

Now I can not change it afterwards and wireshark does not start correctly.

I already deinstalled it and installed it new. But I could not do the selection new.

What can I do? Could you please help me?

Kind regards Jane

Hello Grahamb,

thanks for your answer.

This does not work on my side. Did you do anything else? Did you delete and logs or something like that, before you installed it new?

Kind regards, Jane

I don't use OSX, so can't help personally, I thought this question had come up more often than I could actually find with a search. You should edit your question and include the OSX and Wireshark version numbers to allow others to help.
