This hint is INCORRECT
Authored by: n8gray on Feb 14, '08 01:17:09PM
The command given in this hint does NOT undo the effects of the previous hint. It just changes the opaque menu bar from white to grey. To undo the previous hack you need to DELETE the EnvironmentVariables key from the plist file, not change the value stored in it. There's another comment listed here that describes how to delete the key, but I had a 'gotcha' with the procedure. In my experience, the 'defaults delete ...' command changed the permissions of the plist file so that only root can read it. That's probably not a problem but it can cause confusion. To reset the file and keep the proper permissions, these are the commands (should be two lines):
sudo defaults delete /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.WindowServer 'EnvironmentVariables'
sudo chmod 644 /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.WindowServer.plist

This hint is INCORRECT

This still doesn't fix my menu bar; when I select translucent, the menubar gets slightly darker.

Any other ideas?
