How do I disable transparency in Cinnamon Menu Launcher?

Hi, although I am using Ubuntu 11.10 with Cinnamon, this would be good to know should I ever switch to Mint. But exactly how do I disable (or in other words, completely lose) the slight transparency in my Menu launcher? Doing a Google search yields no apparent results. Thanks!
