Description:

here is my dark mod of elementary.
its basicly elementary with a dark color scheme and some tweaks.

the zip file contains:
Gtk theme
Emerald theme
Panel bg
start here icon

i recommend to install elementary gtk and icon theme before installing this theme

https://launchpad.net/~elementaryart/+archive/ppa

and for bright tray icons i recommend Ubuntu Mono Dark Elementary

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ubuntu+Mono+Dark+Elementary.?content=124196

for a nice look like in the screenshot install globalmenuapplet
https://edge.launchpad.net/~globalmenu-team/+archive/ppa

and nautilus-elementary
http://www.webupd8.org/2010/04/install-nautilus-elementary-230-via-ppa.html

To enable breadcrumbs create a doccument with .gtkrc-2.0 as its name and

include "./.themes/black-element/gtk-2.0/nautilus/nautilus.rc"

as its content and enable breadcrumbs in the tweaks menu of nautilus-elementary

I've got a problem, when I install the theme it says i should use a icon theme called "elementary-dark-monochrome", that there isn't in your packages nor in the link you posted... Are you using it or not? Where can I find it?
Thanks for the help.

BTW, awesome theme! Really really nice!

I REALLY like this, one of the best looking dark themes I've seen.
However, I noticed text entry boxes were defaulting dark grey with light grey text. I accept that this may be by dint of something I've done myself, but it is off-putting and detracts from the excellence of the theme.

Also, when I applied the GTK, I didn't have the elementary-esqe breadcrumbs (which I love) but rather the ugly blocky default one.

Is there a way to fix these issues?

Thanks.

Hey thanks for your comment.
default text color for the entry boxes is #EFEFEF (nearly white) perhaps you need to set the colors to default in the customizing menu :)

also i added how to enable the breadcrumbs in the info :D

the tweak menu is in the preferences menu of nautilus elementary. Edit>Preferences the most right Tab. of course you have to install nautilus elementary first :D
