10.5: One way to create an opaque menu bar
Authored by: l.balint on Oct 31, '07 08:01:53AM

This effect is Core Image based, so an older Mac without a Core Image capable graphics chip has a plain grey menubar. I think there has to be a file hidden somewhere in the system where people can turn off the transparency even when they have Core Image. Maybe it's a matter of time, and we will have the solution!

Use CGDebug to disable Core Image on any Mac
Authored by: ammon on Nov 08, '07 07:52:18PM

/usr/local/bin/CGDebug -ci off
(CGDebug is part of the XcodeTools developer package.)

This causes the menubar to default to an opaque white background (and oddly the Apple icon is gone). Hello System 7 menubar!
