It's a bug in 12.04 as stated here https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/975350


Ubuntu tweak offers the capability to change the color of your dash

To install

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa

sudo apt-get update sudo

apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

    @Tosho Same here! Please update the answer as it seems it's not applicable to Ubuntu 12.04.
