  1. The gtk theme is called Greybird: http://shimmerproject.org/project/greybird/
  2. Icon set name: elementary Xfce Dark. See https://github.com/shimmerproject/elementary-xfce/tree/master/elementary-xfce-dark
  3. You could customize a dock in a similar way with cairo-dock, don't know for sure if this works well in kde.
  4. Please be more sepecific, it depends on which desktop environment you're using right now. What are you still missing?

Please be more sepecific, install xfce and you'll come a long way -> amm?? what do you mean? I have not installed xfce and still I am asking how to apply xfce themes? Why would I do that? –  Abhijit Navale Dec 24 '12 at 16:29
You said to be specific=> what are the details I am missing? –  Abhijit Navale Dec 24 '12 at 16:31
What desktop environment are you using? KDE? –  Martin Rogalla Dec 24 '12 at 19:33
My Dear @MishaX2? I am using a desktop environment called as XFCE their website at xfce.org and I want to apply the theme setting to the same. Thats why I am here? Btw, I am taking it as my insult that you thought me to be as dumb as that I will install kde and then come on ubuntu site then ask about xfce settings and then go back and apply them to KDE? Wow what a great joke? –  Abhijit Navale Dec 25 '12 at 9:19
You can take it as an insult if that is your interpretation, but it's not what I said. First you tell me "I have not installed xfce", now you tell me "I am using a desktop environment called as XFCE". You're saying two contradicting things here. I'm trying to help you here, not make fun of you. So are you running xfce or not? What I understood from you was that you were running a different desktop enviroment and you wanted the Xubuntu look for that enviroment. If you're running XFCE, you can simple download the theme from this link. –  Martin Rogalla Dec 28 '12 at 3:58
