+1 for the coolest Eclipse customization that I've ever seen. – Aaron Mar 6 '13 at 14:38
Thanks - it just version from Software Center (Juno have some problems for visual) and Retta code highlighting. I like Lubuntu because from the box I can make color in system darkens - Eclipse use system palette. Screen shooted from two monitors - console have full screen of my second monitor. +F11 (full screen) for this two windows and hided bar. – Vitaly Zdanevich Mar 6 '13 at 18:50
Link is broken. Could you fix? Preferably post a screenshot here. – OneHoopyFrood Dec 1 '14 at 22:13

You can install "Dark Nimbus Theme" from Tools - Plugins - Available Plugins. Not as dark as your eclipse, but perhaps what you're looking for.

I don't have "theme" or "dark" of "nimbus" in this list of plugins. 84 items, NetBeans version 7.0.4. This software can use system palette? – Vitaly Zdanevich Mar 6 '13 at 19:04
I find this plugin on web and install. Numbers of lines on white background - it is not fixable? This plugin - the only one way to make NetBeans darker? – Vitaly Zdanevich Mar 6 '13 at 19:21
Can I make NetBeans looks like this? – Vitaly Zdanevich Mar 6 '13 at 19:27
I fix background for line numbers - in Font and Colors menu. – Vitaly Zdanevich Mar 6 '13 at 19:38

dark netbeans 7.4, plugin Dynamic LAF Changer Now you can use plugin Dynamic LAF Changer, Dark Look and Feel Themes (can't find on Netbeans site, but I have this plugin on plugin-menu in Netbeans) and ez-on-da-ice (I not test this one).

Tools -> Plugins -> Available plugins
