10.5: [shaded background] Get rid of the translucent menu bar
Authored by: ddash on Nov 15, '07 04:53:42PM

I tried this one and as rob mentions, if in order to get back the original translucent menubar, you have to delete the entry from the plist file manually. By replacing the 1 in the hint by 0, something interesting happens on my system. i.e.
sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.WindowServer 'EnvironmentVariables' -dict 'CI_NO_BACKGROUND_IMAGE' 0

produces a tiger like menubar without transparency which is not just white (but grey) and has a shaded texture.

I too get the gradient if it's set to "0", but... there's an unsightly one pixel wide black line directly below my menu bar.

I'm off to experiment with different values...
