While WS is open, its windows can be displayed or hidden by displaying or hiding the X11 app. The first time this version of WS is run it may take several mins before the main window is displayed while font caches are built.
I get that message. but it never starts up.

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/X11/lib/libpng12.0.dylib Referenced from: /Applications/Wireshark.app/Contents/Resources/bin/wireshark-bin Reason: Incompatible library version: wireshark-bin requires version 45.0.0 or later, but libpng12.0.dylib provides version 42.0.0 bash-3.2#
I've got current Xcode and X11 XQuartz 2.3.5 installed on my machine. port upgrade libpng on macports is at 1.2.40.
wireshark seems to be looking for a libpng with an entirely different numbering convention.

Open the ChmodBPF script, which is located in /Library/StartupItems/ChmodBPF/ChmodBPF, in a text editor. Add a chown line so that the file looks like this: ... chgrp admin /dev/bpf chmod g+rw /dev/bpf chown foobar:admin /dev/bpf* } ... But replace foobar here with the user you want to run Wireshark under. Save the file.
