This question already has an answer here:

I was looking for a dark theme to install and came across this page. I followed the instructions to install the Trevilla-Icons and Trevilla-Jmhzone-Dark Theme, but I can't select them on the appearance settings under themes it doesn't show up, Am I going about selecting the theme all wrong? I've never installed themes before so I'm a bit lost.

Have a look at this question:… I would suggest using Unity Tweak Tool (it's in the repositories). – RolandiXor Jun 6 '13 at 15:33
It's Ubuntu Tweak, not Unity Tweak. I keep the making the mistake myself >.< – Kupiakos Jun 6 '13 at 15:35
@Kupiakos there is something known as Unity Tweak Tool that is included in the repositories (I have both and I know what I'm talking about). We already have a question and answer detailing how to install Ubuntu Tweak, so no need to duplicate it here. – RolandiXor Jun 6 '13 at 15:40
Hrm, ok then. Thanks for the info. I'll take a look at it; I was unaware of its existence. Sorry 'bout that ~,~ – Kupiakos Jun 6 '13 at 15:41

After it has installed, you can install something like Ubuntu Tweak to change your theme using these commands:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

After installation, open Ubuntu Tweak, then select the Tweaks Menu, then select the Theme Menu. The theme should appear under the Gtk Theme Menu or another similar menu.
