This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It is said that there are pixbuf headers in gimp source (gimp-stock-pixbufs.h,gimp-wilber-pixbufs.h, and gimp-core-pixbufs.h). but i can't imagine how they are being displayed. – zabesh Oct 29 '10 at 0:05
Even though I now prefer SO to mailing lists I guess you might get an answer sooner on the Gimp developer mailing list – Bram May 12 '12 at 9:36
gimprc has a property called toolbox-wilber which you can set to no to remove the mascot from the top of the toolbox. Perhaps you can grep the source tree for that and gain some insight or even discover an undocumented config option ;) – koniu Jun 26 '12 at 1:05

They are hiding in /app/widgets/gimpcairo.c at line 140 to the end of the file.

You should be able to comment out the contents of those functions.

If you want to get rid of the space where it uses to draw the toolbox one you can look at these lines.
