Hello Wireshark users, Wireshark developers.

I am using Wireshark on Garuda (an Arch-based distro which uses dark mode) and the filter expression text is totally black, i.e. it is almost invisible in front of a dark gray background. Is there a way to configure the colour?

Unfortunately, I cannot post a screenshot because this is a new account. If there is no option to configure it, could you create the issue in Gitlab? I cannot register because I don't use phones or phone numbers and even if I would in rare occasions, I don't want to provide Gitlab with my phone number for a pseudonym account.

Regards, Elmar

I figured out, I accidentally got a very outdated AUR package. I installed the newest one, version 4.2.4.

But the problem still exists. The background colour is light green (when the expression is valid) or light red (if the expression is invalid) and the font colour is now the system font which is white and hard to read in front of the bright background colour.

But I can solve it. There is an option under "Edit โ†’ Preferences โ†’ Appearance โ†’ Font and Colors" where I can set the colour.

Sorry for the fuss.
