Opaque Menubar for Leopard

To change the transparent menubar of Leopard to something solid via the terminal,
        sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.WindowServer 'EnvironmentVariables' -dict 'CI_NO_BACKGROUND_IMAGE' 0.63
Note – The “0.63” can be changed to any number from 0 to 1.
Then restart your computer.

To restore the original menubar,
        sudo defaults delete /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.WindowServer 'EnvironmentVariables'
Then restart your computer.
