It didn't look like this yesterday. Yes, I have 10.5.6.
hmmm, I thought the transparency was always there as was the pin striping. Also the transparency was turned way down on menus in 10.6 to near opaque levels compared to how they look in Tiger and earlier Leopard builds.
"Why do I suddenly have translucent menus and pinstripped lists?"
Is this not the norm for Leopard? Certainly I am running 10.5.6 and experiencing exactly the same, but always have, and assumed that it was the 10.5 experience!
Correct me if I'm wrong - and yours was definitely different beforehand?
Go to system preferences>Desktop&Screensaver > Uncheck translucent menu bar.
Pin striping is still there, but no longer trasnparent.
That just makes the bar opaque, not the menus that come down from it.
The real question is, what did it look like yesterday? What you have today is the normal Leopard theme.
OP, may I ask, did you change your wallpaper since the yesterday? Perhaps you changed from a lighter to a darker coloured wallpaper, which gives the enhanced impression of transluscent menus. This in turn made you realise the pinstripe-ness, which it seems is the same for everyone, me included. It did not just happen, you merely did not realise it until now.
Weird.. on my desktop that did it.
But on my new macbook it just changes the menubar... And my menus are not transparent like my desktop (10.5.6 here as well)
The translucent menus look different depending on how you have your screen calibrated. It will look different on different screens.
