I'm trying to figure out why I can't get my menu bar to be translucent on my MacBook. It works just fine on the PowerBook G4. Look at these: PowerBook G4 set to translucent: MacBook set to translucent: MacBook not set to translucent: There is a slight difference in the last two, but it's definitely not the same as the PowerBook. When set to translucent on the MacBook, the apple in the corner is always filled with some random colors. The MacBook displayed the translucent menu bar fine when Leopard was originally released. Both computers are running the latest version of Leopard. Any ideas why these are different? Maybe snow leopard will fix it? Thanks for the help.
