Clearlooks Dark is a typical Clearlooks theme made dark/black'ish with a 24px panel background gradient.
I wanted to create a dark Clearlooks theme, but inspired more by SamsamTS's excellent Sugar theme.
This theme has dark panels and menu-bars, but light drop-down menus, and colourful icon-matching selected-item colours. (The themes are designed to work with the Elementary or Gnome-Colors Dust icon sets by Daniel Fore (DanRabbit) and Victor C. (perfectska04).)
It borrows a lot from Shiki-Colors 4.6 by Victor C., and a little from BSM Simple 0.8 theme by Bruno Schmidt Marques.
The light menus mean Iceweasel in Squeeze won\'t display menus correctly- I\'ve included a css file which (partially) corrects this- see the Readme file).
The themes only use the Clearlooks engine, so should run on most distros.

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
