    hey guys i fostered up this command to change the color of my menu bar to white
    Code:
    sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.WindowServer 'EnvironmentVariables' -dict 'CI_NO_BACKGROUND_IMAGE' 1
    it prompts me for a password and then i put it in then i restart my mac and... it doesnt change, its still this like off gray color.

    I dont understand what exactly you want to do.

    But when applying custom menu bars you need to remove the translucent menu bar option from the Change Desltop Background.:$

    Maybe this is what is needed so your change is viewable?

    You want to un-translucentify the menu bar? Just turn it off in Desktop & Screen Saver.
