this is honestly one of the best dark theme's I've seen in a long time. REALLY nice job.

For people who think it is too dark; make sure your computer monitor is calibrated correctly. If your gamma is too low or the contrast incorrect, then the theme will be too dark. gamma should be 1.8 - 2.2 range

Sorry for my English. I was able to install it this way. After unpacking in /home/user/.themes I should rename the folder "Valium" and move the second folder "Valium" in the folder "gtk" to /.themes. So I could make it work. Very nice theme.

Wait...
Unpack, then go to the folder Valium/gtk/Valium and move gtk-2.0 folder to ~/.themes/Valium.
My bad, had to name subfolders like gtk-theme, pekwm-theme etc or place a readme file into the archive )

Ok. Perhaps I am wrong. Finally the structure of the folder was: /.themes/Valium/bmpanel; /.themes/Valium/gtk-2.0 and /.themes/Valium/pekwm.

As 99% of dark themes, this is really beautiful, but unuseable :(

if you looking on dark theme or on a preview from the light theme - of course, your eyes are just not ready for the contrast :)
But for me, from dark theme, with my monitor settings - almost all dark themes looks good :)

The problem of such dark themes(actually i like dark themes, but rather grey,than black) is when you use web-browser, 90% of web-pages use the white or light colors, so this makes a huge contrast for your eyes.

And? This is unuseable coz it breaks all the web-page style.
