OpaqueMenuBar1.5

16 November 2007

Make your Mac OS X 10.5 menubar opaque.

Overview

OpaqueMenuBar makes your Mac OS X 10.5 menu bar opaque, so that you can not see your desktop background image through it.

What's new in OpaqueMenuBar

Verison 1.5:
  • Supports multiple monitors, all sorts of desktop images and lets you customize the shade of grey you want.
  • Due to using Leopard's built-in feature, a restart is now required after changes.

To uninstall, yes, you have to quit it first, either with Activity Monitor or the terminal (killall OpaqueMenuBar). Then, you can delete the application. To reset the desktop image, just open up the system preferences and go to Desktop/ScreenSaver settings. There, re-select your desktop image. Then it will be reset. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. If there's anything else, please, don't hesitate to mail me at support@eternalstorms.at - I check it way more frequently than the comments here ;) Thanks, Matthias

Don't bother with this application, if all it does it fake it. If you want to really change your menu bar to opaque, and even varying shades of grey on a more permanent basis that will survive random desktop pic changes, head over to MacOSXHints.com. See this hint: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20071115135215262#comments Yes, it involves a little system level hacking in Terminal, but it really works, and so far has turned out to be completely safe to do. Read the various comments for ways to vary the parameters to get different shades of grey. Or, you can wait a few days until someone puts a GUI wrapper around this command to make it even easier to do.

Doesn't work for me either. Trashed it, looked elsewhere. Single monitor set up - MacBook Pro.

I've installed this on two Macs (MBP and MP). Neither is showing me an opaque menu bar. It was working on the MPB for a few minutes (don't know how it suddenly started working) and then it stopped. I can't get it to work on either machine even though Activity Monitor shows that its running. Any help would be appreciated.

Doesn't like tiled backgrounds. When you set a bg to "tile." it draws the menubar in white as advertised, but scales up the image to fill the rest of the screen instead of tiling it. Which makes it basically unusable to me.

Works as it should so far. For crying out loud, this is what everybody wants! So, five stars. It's free damnit.

I see its now been removed. Not before I had used though. How do I uninstall this now, I want the normal menu bar back. The only thing I can do is kill it in Activity Monitor, but this does not bring back the original Leopard Menu Bar. Please provide an uninstall method.

Constantly resets the desktop picture to the default space image with Leopard when it launches. Doesn't support a second monitor being the primary off a MacBook. (The white bar appears only on the internal LCD)
