Anyone know of a command to disable wallpaper tinting? That is, instead of clicking the checkbox in System Preferences.

enter image description here


This is controlled via the AppleReduceDesktopTinting global setting:

defaults write -g AppleReduceDesktopTinting -bool yes

A helpful tip for finding these is to dump everything and use diff to see what changed:

  1. defaults read > before
  2. [Change the setting]
  3. defaults read > after
  4. diff before after

There will likely be a lot of noise, but you should be able to sift through and find the one you're looking for!
