Reverting to the Defaults
Authored by: hstaniloff on Jan 22, '08 07:37:12AM

Hello;
I implemented this "hack" and loved the result. But my understanding is that Leopard 10.5.2 will have an option to disable the translucent toolbar. So after successfully implementing the hack I wanted to back it out - cleanly.

So back out the change, I did this:
ENTER ALL COMMANDS AS YOU SEE - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

1. Copied the current com.apple.windowserver.plist file out of /System/Library/LaunchDaemons to my desktop - just in case!

2. In Terminal:
sudo defaults delete /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.WindowServer EnvironmentVariables

enter your psw when promted.

3. Fix the permissions:
sudo chmod go+r /System/Library/LaunchDaemonscom.apple.WindowServer.plist

- you're restoring group and other to "read" access again.

4. Reboot

In the end, your toolbar will be back to Leopard-original.
/Hal
