Updating from KDE3.5 to KDE4 with Mac-Style Menubars

It seems KDE4 has no Mac-Style menubars and when you upgrade from 3.5 to 4.1 within the same config folder (say you use the kubuntu distribution upgrade installer like I did) you end up with no menubars at all. To solve this little issue find a variable “macStyle = true” in the /home/username/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals file and switch it to macStyle = false and you have your menubars back.
