I downloaded and installed the Adwaita Dark theme. It worked, but I had an issue. The title bar was supposed to turn black too, but it doesn't. I followed the steps in this OMG! Ubuntu article. There is a screenshot in the site with the title bars black. And here is a screenshot of my Ubuntu.

As you can see, I applied the Adwaita theme in "Window theme" too but it stays just like the default Adwaita.

Why does that happen and what can I do to fix it?

Have you tried logging out and logging back in, or a reboot? This sometimes fixes common issues with switching themes. –  WarriorIng64 Nov 9 '11 at 4:33
    
Yes. First of all I tried compiz --replace. Then I tried restarting the session. But none of those worked. –  Jesse Nov 9 '11 at 4:36
    
I'm using this theme right now, as a matter of fact, under GNOME Shell and it did the switch properly for me. As I see you're using Unity, I'm not sure if that changes anything; I don't have any further ideas. –  WarriorIng64 Nov 9 '11 at 4:39
    
I tested it under gnome-shell and it worked. The issue seems to be with Unity, like you said. –  Jesse Nov 9 '11 at 4:49
