10.5: One way to create an opaque menu bar
Authored by: lar3ry on Oct 31, '07 08:15:14AM

The OpaqueMenuBar freeware app didn't work for me (brand new--purchased last Friday--Mac Mini, Leopard).

I'm not entirely ready to modify my images, mostly because I use many different screen resolutions, depending on which monitor I use with the mini, and I'd need a custom image for each resolution or I'd have a too-big or too-small white strip at certain resolutions.

Apple should have provided at least a "defaults" setting for the translucency, as well as for all the other quirks with Leopard, such as the useless bunching of icons in the Dock's "stacks" folders, etc. However, Apple seems to never add such things afterward, so we're stuck with the status quo for now.

Keep in mind that Peter Mauer (ManySpaces) had created an "OpaqueMenuBar" app that worked in betas but not with the final release; if it was *that* app you tried, then, no, it wouldn't have worked. This appears to be an entirely different app also named OpaqueMenuBar.
